    Its not about caring what people think, its about being aware of your environment and understanding when sometimes wearing something in said environemnt is not quite right, regardless of what people think.

    Also, sometimes its just a PIA to deal with peoples asinine comments, and when Im not in the mood for that, I will often skip it. Ymmv, but there is nothing wrong with a person who feels a PS is not appropriate for his surroundings, its not like not wearing pants.

    SB, the DB is baws on you.

    I saw Portland, ME under optimal conditions - the weather was great this past weekend, I had the use of an apartment within walking distance of Commercial St., and a local guide (my cousin) to recommend the best restaurants and other activities. It made for a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend.

    Just tell them the hanky is a homage to JFK or RR, depending on the political environment.;)

    Understand but it's odd that in Australia not one person has commented on my PS. They are starting to proliferate here as well now.
    I dress however I want, no matter the surroundings or the people therein.

    I don't plan on engaging in a pointless debate. Wear what you want, people. I plan on doing the same...which won't include pocket squares.

    @Murlsquirl I don't often wear ties or pocket squares to my office or meetings because the environment / clientele doesn't really appreciate or understand the effort. So I dress enough just to make myself appear as a boss, but not so much as to make my staff uncomfortable or make myself out to be "showy." So basically, what I'm really saying is, I know exactly what you mean when you say you don't want too much attention on yourself.

    That's one sweet suit Sugarbutch.

    I am getting a double breasted flannel suit on my coming trip to Hong Kong, and I was going to get it in mid gray, but it's sooo tempting to get one in charcoal chalkstripe... I'll be good and wait until some other time though.

    Actually since I'm talking about my wardrobe deficiency, do you think ticket + hacking pockets is "too fashiony" for a city suit (navy and gray glen plaid). I'm getting the suit with peak lapels and pagoda too, so it sounds like it'd be a world of mess, but I really do personally like the look. I can tell that it's not the most SF approved idea though. I know a lot think hacking + ticket are for country/informal situations due to the origin, and that clashes with peak lapels a lot but, idk, I've also read that some people don't mind, including apparently manton, so I don't know what to think.

    Keep it simple. Build your wardrobe around simple. Simple is versatile. And after you know every inch of simple, slowly build from there.

    Thanks for the comments and thumbs! The suit is Polo sourced from eBay. My tailor did a great job taking about .75" out of each shoulder. It was a gamble, but it was either do that or send it on to Spoo and hope not to take too bad a loss.
