The last few months I often hear people say "It's Italian" (and they probably think it should make a statement). Do they mean it's higher quality, more expensive or exclusive (and what does make it more exclusive)?

when it comes to a plain white cotton pocket square, is price a reflection of quality, or brand association?
post #9423 of 28875
Can be a bit of both. But, in practical application, an inexpensive one works as well as a more costly one. If you can't tell a difference in two options, go with the less expensive. Just look for squares with hand-rolled edges.

What is the name of that online tie seller? There's site that sells their own ties and I've seen it discussed here before. I tried to search for it, but came up blank. Their ties are made in Mexico, perhaps.

Any thoughts on navy sport coats with contrasting white buttons? Is this too much or could it look good if done well?

Bone buttons are great. I believe former forum éminence grise Voxsartoria had a jacket like this. To me, they work best for summer blazer-type jackets.

I have been looking for a pair of semi-brogue captoes in burgandy or dark brown. Do these seem like a good buy for the price? (Excluding VAT and adding shipping, it comes to approx 338)

There is a nice pair of dark brown Sutor captoes for 305 in BS that I am also considering.

Any input is much appreciated! Also, other recommendations are more than welcome.
