Thank you! But what about the blue tie I disagree.
Here we need green-purple or earthy hue. These are the laws of color harmony. shog[1].gif
The image is built on brown and green colors. Blue shirt and handkerchief - additional elements Palitra.
Blue tie here would be very alien element.
I would have announced on homogeneous brown tie in this outfit. But it's not blue.
Thanks again for your comment. smile.gif

 

 

Love puple/aubergine +  green, its a great combo.  Perhaps not the blue in the square. Sander, I have to disagree with u on this one.

 

RIP Günter Grass

Yeah, I thought about brown as well, but that would have been too boring with the pants, I think. Do me a favor and try a solid navy tie (something with rough texture, like grenadine garza grossa) with that jacket, shirt and pants. I think it would look great.

While we're at it: where do you find a Foo-approved cream PS in silk?

Spring-like temperatures and sunshine - time to dig out a suit from the closet that hasn't been worn in a while.

Suit, braces, and shoes - Paul Staurt
Shirt - BB
Tie - JAB
PS - no name brand
Cufflinks - David Donohue, via Cable Car Clothiers, SF
Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center

In creme. It's cream silk, but I can't speak to the foo approval.

Not sure of all the images since they are heavily degraded (gogo inflight connection)


Cream

These should have the same effect

Thanks. That one was really nice, actually. Will have to look at some old Foo fit pics to see how he incorporated it into outfits and then decide whether to purchase or not. As for the moment, I reach for a white linen PS 101 times out of 100. I have several pocket squares in different combinations and colors, but I struggle to use them. Purchased a bunch of Drake's a couple of months ago but have barely used them. I find White linen to be the easiest and best option almost every time. Maybe a cream silk will get me out of my comfort zone.

 

 

Thanks for the suggestions. Not a fan of satin, as it's to shiny for my taste. But I like those with motifs. Especially the KW. Might grab one. Claghorn is making great use of his.

Negative (for me)

Bad matchy-matchy with shirt

thank you!
but also disagree with it. the thing is that the blue pocket square complements the color of the shirt.
if you change the color of a pocket handkerchief on ANY other color, then the shirt would remain without support.
and the shirt in this case will be somewhat alien. it will be unprofitable to contrast with other elements.

blue pocket square then the only option (according to the laws of the color piece of the balance and proportions of color).
with a blue pocket handkerchief blue shirt is balanced and looks natural.

try to mentally insert here beige or brown pocket handkerchief.
soon it will be 2 negative points: 1 - the lost balance of proportions of blue and the shirt will look alien, 2 - a large area of the jacket will be deprived of appropriate accent of ANOTHER color palette.

applying blue pocket handkerchief we solve both these problems. shog[1].gif

I think the shirt doesn't really need any support since light blue shirt is like a blank canvas and can stand on it's own (my approach). But it's all good that we have different approaches, makes for variety of fits.

P.S. I think that here may also be suitable pocket handkerchief with white-brown pattern(smaller than the scale of the cells of the jacket) smile.gif

The rest of the palette (pronounced greens and dark browns) needs balancing in my view - the lightness of the blue works great for this, but to my eye one piece of blue risks being overwhelmed on its own.

But like you say, there's lots of suitable approaches with individual elements as good as these.

Cream provides the necessary support to the warm colors. A light blue square looks studied and a bit out of place. Again, just my opinion
