Gap between scales I think you mean bottom right? Different part of the animal where more movement is needed hence more connecting tissue.

Would you prefer bottom left brown or the bottom right brown with the very large scales?

I was bustin' ballz a little bit happy.gif You ever see guys on TV … some of the NFL broadcasters come to mind … when it seems like the pocket square and tie came in see-thru-plastic box together with a pair of shitty cufflinks? My goodness. Here are some decent examples with a bit of variation.



subtle red pulls in the tie… reflects a bit of the color in the jacket… nice.



not my fave fit and I would have chosen a different green tie… but the lighter shade of green reflects the green in the tie and of course goes well with browns.



a little more snappy this fit… but subtle browns and blues in the square work well.



a bit of pop here, but pink goes well with grey and brightens the fit with the secondary color in the tie.

These aren't definitive by any means but just a few ideas as food for thought. Check out the HOF - WAYWRN part IV thread for examples of posters with nice choices of squares. Hope that helps… others may have similar or different suggestions as well.

Understand the color wheel and complimentary colors. If you are good with that most of your pocket square combinations will be good.

I was going to mention this, but didn't want to sound too arty-farty (because I am definitely a bit arty-farty!), but yes that is spot on. fing02[1].gif

Besides linen, what other pants are appropriate or comfortable to wear with a linen or linen/cotton blend shirt in a hot climate?

Seersucker!

Finally assembled a decent basic shoe polish kit

 

 

Some questions though, what are small daubers for? I can't really find a use for it.

 

I read that the wax polish itself would provide waterproofing, should I still layer it with rain &stain repellent spray? Plus if I choose to quickly buff it periodically would it damage the leather if I just do it on top of the spray?

Good option, I would not have thought of that. Is seersucker really only acceptable in that pale blue stripe? Living in aforementioned hot climate, I need something I can get in some different colors and wear frequently, I imagine wearing the same type of light blue pants would be a bit limiting.

^^ have seen/owned tan/white striped seersucker. Also (less commonly) white/grey and white/red

Very light wool/silk blends can still be quite comfortable.

Would anyone happen to know which species of shark is/was most commonly used for shark skin shoes?

They wouldn't make and sell seersucker suits in so many colors, if blue stripe were the only truly acceptable one.



Oh, and bow ties go nicely with seersucker suits. Just sayin'.
