Cheers for the tips guys. 

I try to dress like this, except without the pocket square (a plain white linen to be introduced after 30).

Oli, it Is obviously a personal choice, but I do not think you should wait so long to introduce the pocket square. To me it elevates an outfit and is a joy to wear.

With the knowledge you have and your interest in clothing I think you are denying yourself some the pleasure of dressing and complete your outfits in an interesting way.

I believe Nabil works in the legal profession and his pocket square are understated and enhance his outfit (I do not know his age). He is my lawyer of choice (see above).

WOW. Don't be creepy man. How do you know Nabil? How do you know he works in the legal profession? Really creepy. Starting to scare me now, Pink Socks.

 

Aside from that - I completely agree with everything in your post :).

agreed. particularly if you want to distinguish yourself in the courtroom; less than 1/10 lawyers wear pocket squares in court and in the office.

Agreed.

I'll add that some of my friends are lawyers, public servants and public servants who are lawyers in their early twenties and they wear pocket squares with aplomb. You don't have to be adventurous - just a plain, white linen square is fine.

If Ur the most junior guy in the office it's probably a good idea to start modest however I think it's a lot harder to introduce a pocket square than to start with one... If you don't wear one for 2 years and then pop one in you'll cop the captain obvious comments from the Neanderthals

If you're someone who's just left uni and starting work, dressing like that is going to give the people around you that you're some fancy pants high maintenance type of guy.

Like Phat Guido says and keeps saying "CONTEXT". So many young guys these days (including myself) get stuck on this dressed by #menswear and jump on the hype of dressing like men of a bygone era, which I feel is mostly unnecessary unless you enjoy peacocking at work. Heck, I'm probably one of five people that wear a tie in the office, and if I come in with a knit tie one day I get double checked by some.

True. A distinction needs to be drawn between dressing conservatively and minimally and dressing badly to fit in with everyone else though. I think it was Gilbert and Tobin who had an ad last year with a clerk in a thin lapeled suit, small collared shirt and purple shepards' check tie, all courtesy of Roger David. 

 

Nabil: your blog is awesome btw!
