    Last day of one pattern. No square today. Couldn't find a solid square to go with this jacket.

    Sounds like it may be something server side. Have you posted in Site Topics about it?

    Pretty sure it's not the last one. Were that the case I'd probably be prevented from posting.

    I have been thinking about this all day and don't have a good answer. It's sort of interesting because, as constructed, a white linen square is no good (contrary to the maxim). Silk, even a dry silk, seems out. I have a dark chocolate cashmere which in my head seems like the kind of thing, but that jacket is so strong I think any square is going to muddle the composition.

    Separately, what sort of fabric is that shirt? It looks like poplin.

    I've put more more details of the thoughts behind the outfit and the brands in my blog post.
    The marketing director of Kent Wang reached out to me to see if I wanted to feature some of their squares on the blog and agreed for several reasons:
    I’ve had a few companies contact me to get their product featured but until now I’ve always refused because I’d never wear their products in real life. Kent Wang was different - I already own a number of their grenadine ties, linen pocket squares, silver knot cufflinks and one of their long sleeve polos. I like their product and I like the company.
    I was really thrilled that they reached out to me and got the idea of taking five squares and featuring them in a number of different outfits. Most guys wear their squares with suits and ties but there’s no reason it has to be that way.
    Over the next few days, I’ll be featuring five different squares worn casually and in the traditional way.

    Actually what I wore last Friday. The versatility of that green jacket makes me think that I need a green suit in a same shade - maybe even a very soft DB.
