JR - some thoughts on pocket square choice.  N.B. "complementing" does not mean "matching" when we're talking tie vs PS - usually the opposite I think.

I like the choices here. The first square in your last sequence of four, with the green/red paisley and gold/orange might work nicely here if you can fold them so those three colors are more visible (not the blue). For darker jackets, I'm finding darker, navy squares to feel a bit lost. Sugarbutch has the sand in the second square which would have worked nicely here, picking up your tie (I think it has blue and red in it). I don't like the small paisleys.

I was figuring JR wearing his new navy suits so the anchor point on which to choose the square will be largely determined by his tie (and I agree green/brown can be a good way to go). I'm assuming JR will wear a light blue shirt!

 

I'd be interested in looking at Foo's first five pics in the good taste thread and discussing them here. They were good examples. Sure, they were talked about, and certainly by some who are hanging around here, but not all of us weighed in, and they were interesting, considered choices.

The beginning of the good taste thread is an amazing resource. Foo certainly makes interesting choices at times, with a limited collection of hankies, if I remember correctly.

Yes, agred. Off to lunch, but I'd cut and paste his five pics here, since JR is thinking about the issue.

Great source, but note that most squares pick up something from the tie. I usually do this as well, but I'm trying more and more to wear squares that are unrelated to the colours in my outfit, but still work. Quite a challenge at times.

When I said "compliment" I meant as in complimentary colors as in the art definition.  Colors across from each other on the color wheel.  I'm not sure if I'm correct in my thought process here.

Yes exactly; there was a previous reference to "matching", but with nice patterns I suppose there's often a bit of both.  And as MF said, sometimes just a burst of something completely different - the most obvious example often being the plain white PS.  Less obvious, a frayed yellow Post Imperial, perhaps...

Complement = To make complete or go together. Think of the word complete.

Compliment = Saying something nice like, "Your fine @ss complements with the rest of your body. Baby got back!"

Not as over priced as Zegna and I already have 2 RLBL so why not?

Just talking while I stuff my face with a sandwich.

Is this good, ok, or so so?

1.  Lapels too narrow.  Not classic enough.

2.  Because you still haven't tried it on.  I'm going to slap you in a minute.

i think as it concerns clothing pairings, coherent combination is a better term than complimenting. semantics though.

That spot, again?

 

Fine. RLBL off the list. I don't like narrow lapels.

Scoping out some more ties on the bay, thoughts on these?  I actually put a bid on 4 others not pictured here but I'm confident the council would approve as they're $9 now and if I did post pics someone might ninja kop them from right under me.  I know stichey owes me one since I nabbed that suit yesterday.  Not saying you guys play dirty but some lurkers might.
