No gun clubs, no pocket squares... You're a strange one, Mr Morel.

well, I'm making a district check up, which I guess is kinda similar to gun clubs. The worsted gun clubs are what I am avoiding.

In terms of pocket squares, let me turn the question on you, why do you wear one?

Worsted gun clubs I can understand.

As for the PS, usually I feel it helps to break up the vast expanse of fabric on the chest. I don't always wear one, but there are definitely times where I feel like it really helps to break things up.

I will say, they are very hard to do right, and I have not mastered them by any stretch.

but you have a shirt and tie breaking up the suit and the tie/shirt/suit "V" are really the central point of the outfit and if that is not tied together, a pocketsquare will do nothing and if your tie/shirt/suit work well, the pocketsquare just becomes an extraneous distraction, like those wristicles or those things people hang from their lapel. With patterned odd jackets, again, I think they are just a distraction. Obviously this is all just my opinion but thats my reasoning for no longer wearing one.

I like pocket squares because they break up the left-right symmetry of a suit, as well as the color or pattern. With a patterned suit like a pinstripe, a nice white PS contrasts nicely with the lines. With a solid navy suit, a patterned PS contrasts with the sea of blue.

Would someone be so kind as to explain why a worsted gun club is to be frowned upon? Would lambswool such as this be okay as a sportcoat?

Anyone have experience with the silk blends in Dormeuil's 'Naturals' book?

I'm mostly with Ed on the pocket square front. I do wear them with suits, but not with odd jackets. Makes me feel a bit too dandified. Only exception is something like a navy fresco blazer where I'll put in a square.

As for Gun Clubs, I agree that they should be rugged and proper tweed material. Worsted seems off IMO. Worsted is a city material and Gun Clubs are not very city. Although Foo's does look good on him. Always exceptions to every rule.

From what I've read this seems to be a reaction against what are consider faux Tweeds, not just gun clubs but other Tweed patterns too. That is, that city-fying a rustic material, is a sartorial oxymoron.

But it ignores that people may like tweed patterns but not the hand or weight of a Tweed.

If you like the cloth, get it.

Those lambswool gun clubs are nice, would wear.

I am not a h8er of worsted GCs. Some of the nicest summer jackets I've ever seen were the CB for Lesser and Hardy Riviera, which had a lot of small checks, very elegant
