Uh...so eventually I will be kicked out of our walk in closet?

That's not what I said. I said that if there are two closets, you should each take one. Who gets which is up to you.

I think it's actually too busy to be an effective PS, but if you purchase it, do show that it works and make me regret not getting it. Drakes PS sub 40.

There area  few squares that would be really versatile there. I've been on the fence about getting some, but I'm pretty happy with my square collection and they charge an arm and a leg to ship internationally. Still, if I was stateside, I'd be getting these:

 

$39

$29

 


$29       and it's wool-silk. I cannot emphasize enough the awesomeness of that blend for pocket squares. It's less "wet" than pure silk. Slick silk is pretty much stuck with worsted; I think wool-silk works in more contexts.

Clags has highlighted some winners there. I am sort of in non-kop mode at the moment, though...

I'm still feeling like the Drakes would be too busy, sort of a melange once you poof it. The others are too small. I feel like 16x16 is a minimum.

post #3624 of 37394
I assumed that all were 16 x 16. I agree that is the minimum size.

I'm all for mixing and matching fabrics though I was thinking silk with a linen jacket in the spring/summer. I'm a bit surprised with silk and tweed, although I suspect it depends on the tweed. At some point, it becomes too city versus country, no?

Silk hanks are not really city. Turning the city dial to 10 requires a white linen square. Or no square.
