    The best linen ones for me are the ones made for Mark Marengo Savile Row by Simonet Goddard France one of the best hand made hanks makers in the world.
    I recommend the fine gossamer linen with satin edges, or the ones with fine pale blue edges that are understated and effortlessly elegant . £32 (non EU tax free)
    There are much cheaper ones out there of course but these ones are nothing short of absolutely sensational.

    Look at these colors ... everything was done by hand according to the ancient Neapolitan tradition with vintage silks ... what do you think?

    Then you'll like this map of Iceland.

    It doesn't make for as good of a pocket square though.

    Just got our first set of wool-silk pocket squares from print. Really pleased with the outcome.

    25% Silk, 75% wool

    The Square - Being Together - Nice array of colors in the puff and a conversation worthy story when unfolded.

    And here's another vintage pocke-square still hand-printed many years ago in Italy. For me, these colors are very unique.

    What do you think?

    What do you think? This is my personal bespoke pocket-square. I've made 43x43 cm so does not fall within the pocket. Also because I hate it when a pocket-square does not do his duty sliding in the pocket [​IMG]
