Wanting to up my pocket square game

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Have never really worn any. Recently ordered a Hober grenadine tie, are his pocket squares as good as his ties? I've also been checking out some squares from Drake's.

 

Best brands as far as price goes? I don't think I'd want to spend more than ~$50 for a pocket square, especially since I'm just getting into them. Where would be a good place to start?

Both make excellent squares. Kent Wang makes good ones too.

Hober, Drake's and Kent Want, all good choices. If cost is a major concern, I'd recommend searching eBay. You can pick up some superb squares for not much money.

Kent Wang, Monsieur Fox, Hober, and Vanda are all under 50.

No sunstone? Was just perusing KW today and thought "Man, I gotta have that..."

That's actually pretty difficult to wear. Kent and I have talked about its surprising difficulty.

Yeah, well, I'm a Californian of Mexican descent. I'll find a way.

I might have worn it today!

 

The "Great Wave" square is excellent. One of the most versatile squares I own. I have to consciously not reach for it in many situations.

I've been wanting the Great Wave for some time now. Almost saw the real thing in the Rijksmuseum but my wife just HAD to have a Belgian waffle. :facepalm:

Ditto. I wear mine 90% of the time.

I wear my Great Wave square quite a bit as well. I have the wool/silk version. I have been moving away from 100% silk squares, as I prefer squares with a matte finish.

As far as brands go, I like Roda and Tie Your Tie. The former is available at Yoox, the latter at NMWA.

TheTieBar is the most economical, I think.

The downside is that their designs are fairly common and are even shared among other brands like lands end, banana, uniqlo etc.

 

One positive solution is to support local US business 

There's bunch of stores on etsy or web-handmade-pocket-square-stores like

Not a bad purchase for 15 bucks

Hober is the best
