Thank you kindly, sir. I can totally see your point about the pocket square. By my standards it's actually pretty tame and I am at the conservative end of the African diaspora aesthetic around here. Here's a friend of mine in his shop in Central Harlem:
I can recall four times in the last 25 years that I've worn a tie:
- Immigration court
- A funeral
- A rather stuffy wedding
- Another funeral
So I do actually own one but I think it might be characterized around here as "just barely acceptable" (at best).
