what on god's earth are you talking about, SF is lost in 1955, AND in black and white.  it's a non issue.

Do you wear a pocket square? A question of decision, yes or no. No, but I want to. (Am I free? No, but I want to be.) Does she have a hankerchief? If yes, why doesn't she use it? She wants you to offer her yours.

Now I have been warned if I buy the larger pocket square it may bulge. I must measure my pockets, too. I asked the bespoke pocket square businessman whose advertising is so discreet that no price is visible, if he would be so kind to look at those RTW larger pocket squares advertised on sale by duchamp to give me his opinion of them, but instead he offered me a small discount.

I wonder if those who answer the question of decision with yes have checked to see the conditions in which the pocket square was made? Do I want to wear a pocket square manufactured in subhuman conditions? If I buy a pocket square made in England, I can be sure it was not made by imported modern slaves in a sweatshop, correct? If I buy online a
RTW pocket square made in Italy, then it may have been produced by Chinese workers being exploited.

This is not specific to pocket squares though...?

the best pocket square is one made by yourself.  but the fabric? it's up to you to research before buying.

 

anybody care to post their square of today? and why they chose it?

Square is 100 wool and bulky as well (Kamakura). Sometimes I like the show just the edges of this one for a completely different look.

 Matched today with a casual outfit in antcipation of snowmeggedon in NYC.  Brown corduroy jacket, kamakura knit bengal strip shirt and jeans with boots.

I wear a white linen pocket square TV anytime I am in black tie or wearing a suit (except funerals) and probably about 2/3 of the time when I am wearing a blazer and greys in the evening. If I'm at a level of formality below a blazer and greys, I don't bother. White linen just seems wrong with tweed and I cannot be bothered to either start collecting squares that go with more casual looks nor do I want to take the extra effort to pick squares that go with particular shirt and tie combinations.

You are on the island, and the Italian I asked says exploitation is everywhere, so you can answer your question better than I.

Now T.M.Lewin is offering pocket squares reduced from £52 to £15, silk in solid colours, but I cannot recognise if hand rolled. Hand r olled edges seem to be a necessary feature of a silk pocket square, correct?

But Lewin has their name on the pocket square, and somehow
(made in England?) T.M.Lewin is not cool. Maybe I'll choose more subtle colour combinations like T&A?

I tried to coax some opinions from another thread but didn't get anything, but since this is about pocket squares I thought I'd post here. What do you guys think about this fold? :S

 

 

 

 

And before anyone asks me why I want to have an ice cream in my pocket it's meant to look like a rose/flower.

 

Was only using iphone so the white one doesn't show very well but it's obviously layered like the blue one.

 ^^  i admire the thought. but there must be a better way to achieve the goal. and i would like to see how you do it. because itlooks like a tie rolled up in your pocket.  keep trying, and i am keen to see the finished method.

 

- Today's square..

 


lol, i was holding the jacket. should have just done up the buttons.  and here is the square.


just a little fun, to spice up a grey s/c.

Yeah it's actually kind of hard to get right since it's not a fold you can follow folding lines or anything, though arguably that makes each fold more unique or something? =P The different texture of the square also changes the fold a bit, and with the blue one the texture makes it so it's a bit too uniform, which I think doesn't look as good. Still I thought it looked alright so more thoughts/opinions would be nice as I play around with it more.

perhaps a looser fold? ruffled a bit.  really, i'm not trying to be the typical SF critic.  this is an interesting idea you have.

I think it looks affected, and makes the pocket too bulky.
