Noodles is about to crash and burn just like Michigan State.

I've seen much worse.

post #35285 of 37396

Me too. I was just shocked because I'd never seen anything like this.

post #35286 of 37396

I have. Like yours, mine was a gift.

Given the vast number of truly awful squares out there this isn't bad at all.

 

It does, however, violate the principle held by some on SF that squares should not use patterns that look like tie patterns (in this case neats in three of the four quadrants).

 

For the record, I've never been convinced by that constraint as a general principle.  To be sure, one would probably avoid a neat-patterned square with a neat tie, but that's covered by the more general principle which advises that one avoid matching tie and square too closely; it thus doesn't need an independent principle of its own.

 

If past discussions are any indication, opinions here are split on the question.

 

Cheers,

What I was hoping for was to get someone who had experience in Oxxfords to give me some insights.

 

Seems like a reasonable enough question to me.

I'd likely wear it as a puff with 2-3 patterns showing at once at dinner when I wasn't wearing a tie. I think it'd work with the right jacket. Perhaps even a linen sc.

 

I was just surprised when I first saw it but I was definitely excited that she bought me a PS haha.

Twist it tightly, like you were gently wringing out a towel, and stuff it in your pocket twisted like that. It won't look like multiple patterns. It'll just look like some jumbled mess of colors, which is not a bad thing as far as squares go.

Yup, that's how I wear it as well. I'm still not sure it looks all that great like that but it's the best way to do it.

Looks like a square with tie patterns. Maybe best worn sans tie in summer.

In my head, this sounds like it would look very odd. Anybody have a picture of a square worn this way? I only have a few solids so I can't experiment for myself.
