a wise man once told me, a penny saved is a penny made. paying for that coat must mean you've just made $10,000. what a bargain.

You would effectively be losing money if you didnt buy that jacket.

You could save twice as much if you got two of them - or arrange a group buy and we could all save millions.

Euphemism?

I'll try Charles. 

 

How did you go with Charles?  His shirt turn around is usually under 3 weeks, and I've seen him make large orders for gentlemen leaving the country in under 2 weeks.  He has lots of samples and cloths on the roll which can help give you a better impression of the final result if unsure.  Good luck.

Better a date that with the family. DiCaprio blowing cocaine into a hooker's anus through a $1,000 note in the first scene of the movie vindicated my choice not to see WoWS with the parents...

Yeah I spoke to Charles this arvo and he was really helpful. He seemed a little confused at first about the concept of sending him a shirt to copy, but once I explained the situation he said there should be no problem. There was still a little reticence about not being present to pick a fabric. But really the best I can say is white Thomas Mason broadcloth. I'm sure there are probably 20 variants of that description anyhow but I'm far too inexperienced to make up my mind anyway. (though if anyone wants to chime in on what goes with a raf blue peak lapel suit and black/white PoW plaid tie feel free to do so...)

Did anyone else catch the debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham?

Didn’t even bother looking at the suits, shirts and knits. Managed to pick up pick up the only knit tie that I came across, along with two new pocket squares and a silk scarf for the significant other.

I think that from over the last few years of R&B sales, my pocket square collection is now 90 percent R&B!
Any chance they're likely to have a bunch of white pocket squares someone might like to proxy for me? Barring that; suggestions for the best place online to find cheap white squares?

I wouldn't be able to sit through it, would just make me mad.

I understand the point Nye is trying to make, but I really don't see there's much to be gained by 'debating' someone who's answer to everything (literally, everything) is 'what the bible said'. In Ham's world anything and everything that disagrees with his literal interpretation of the bible is just flat out wrong. Evidence etc be damned. My head would explode within minutes.

I missed it for better or worse, these debates are often incredibly infuriating. I recall an excellent Q&A with Hitchens and a panel full of religious folk, it degraded into name calling as they weren't able to construct any real argument beside the bible says XYZ and we don't need to prove it. Same thing happened with Dawkins & George Pell who seemed to struggle to string a sentence together let alone participate in the debate.

Henry Carter has some plain white linen pocket squares.

Kent Wang, another SF affiliate, has a variety of linen pocket squares, including a white linen one. Be aware that shipping from the US typically takes two weeks unless the item is posted express.

Otherwise, you could head into DJs and pick up a fine white linen pocket handkerchief, as they usually have some. I know several people who use them as pocket squares.
