Dear Isolation,

There must be something you like about it - perhaps its innovative character? But if you recognise a blossom character in its shape, do you find wearing a flower on your jacket lapel alienating? Why not a rose instead of a surrogate?

The fact you seek opinions shows what other persons think about your creation is a factor for you, in which case, you might consider the shape to which you attribute your pocket square fold - that of a rose blossom, is not the only possibility, as you present another mental picture, that of ice cream cone. However romantic your own phantasy is, other persons may differ in their phantasy. Whereas, a rose is a rose.

To the objection it looks affected, I looked again, and got the opposite impression: this roll appears quite practical, some sort of office handyman who has a gadget for his job in his pocket, like a pen or whatever. In other words, the roll loses any decorative effect for a indefinite function, and you use the pocket to store it, ready at hand. Prose instead of poetry.

- 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.

Good idea, although the pocket square is again hardly visible, but you react to the villain of that James Bond movie who wears hos pocket square like Niagara Falls at his speech in South America, you don't want to be like him, right? The comics pocket square will signal to the gals that guy in gray flannel has two souls in his breast: you score!
PS: Now I understand why you keep the pocket square so - because it's the comics pocket square! Is that UNDERstatement or lack of courage? But you know your neighborhood best.

Dear Gringodaddy,

s m o o t h!

Your clothes look cultivated, but your description sounds better, like a recipe for an exotic cocktail (I hope only fruit juice) or maybe lyrics to be put to music?

We love our gringodaddy!

Thankyou very much, i wear it as subtle as possible. as to not dominate the look. so the fold is just to show a little, and hint at awesome inside.

i like to have fun with my clothes. but still look like i work for a living.

Thankyou also.  I made it myself. from material i bought at a sewing shop. it is a neat little hobby. and gives me a custom look.

the way the material is printed, with ALL of the marvel characters, each square is unique, and each fold a different comic.

Dear 38R,

I just saw a newspaper article in a Swiss newspaper (Blick, 3rd January 2014, page 7) the views ("Kurer kritisiert die US-Justiz") of Peter Kurer
, UBS chief jurist 2001-2008, whose photograph (surely posed and stiled with PR consultation) shows him wearing dark suit jacket, open-collared formal shirt i.e. without tie, and contrasting red pocket square in full blossom (as high as his little finger's length). Because I consider his hypocritical and retarded Weltanscauung an example for the opposite of what Switzerland should contribute to the world (God's earth in your words), I have no wish to imitate this egoist's niveau in any way. But your position is not identical with Prince Charles', whose ideas on money are unknown to me. Your comment: "and still look like I work for a living" isn't very tolerant, if you cobsider its presuppositions and imolications, Not all work necessitates specialised clothing. You refer to the function of costume to evoke intentionally certain mental pictures and feelings in the soul of the observer.

PS: What do you consider ideal pocket square measurements, and can you "hand roll"?

I almost never buy things that I don't know how to wear, but I'd love to hear what other people thing about this one.

Dear Mr YRR92,

Your complex sentence reminds me of a mathematical logic example because the two statements have no connection semantically to each other.

1. I buy, I know

2. What do you think of this ps?


I think the colors and pattern of your pocket square are very beautiful.


Unfortunately, you do not provide any description, specifications of the pocket square which would help someone like me to learn more about it.

haha!, "hand roll"...  - you mean a fully hand made square?   yes.  fancy, magical B.S. - yes. 

 

  i wear a square to break up a fit. to make it blend, and not be too uniform.    i like to enjoy my clothes, but understand that for work purposes, i must be mindful that others will judge my appearance.   while most "approved" members are teachers or proffessors, it is a difficult job. but offers freedom in personal styling. however,  i own a company, and need to impress clients almost daily.  and need to bear in mind that collegues depend on my skills, so i dress to describe my personality. (Hence the phrase "work for a living").  clientys are greeted by a man who has no fear to dress as he likes, whille respecting the chosen industry.  -power dressing with personality.

Dear Aesthete 38R,

If I understand correctly your description above of your work situation, you have responsibility for the leadership of an organisation employing others. The more consciously you represent the company in details of your own person and behaviour, the more fruitful the human atmosphere around you. Perhaps you call your dressing powerful because you feel better wearing clothes you like. If you feel better, than perhaps your employees and customers appreciate your positive attitude to view and try to solve their problems.

PS: I want to wear pocket squares, but I don't have your budget, your aesthetic experience, or your craftsmanship. I read in some cases of pocket squares they are hand rolled. I observed a tiny turn at the edges.
post #75 of 140

your assesment is correct. but my budget is small, this is the first year of business. so appearance is vital to self representation.

the comic book square cost me $3.50 usd.  you can make your own too.

 

hopefully this helps...
