    @sugarbutch i didnt mean to point at sanything wrong, i was mostly curious if you had an alernative - but equaly beautiful - idea for the linen and cotton ones. by the way i have all my pocket squares in an old cigar box, but i prefer your method. its time to display them

    I took no offense. You raised a legitimate issue with my approach.

    I just ordered a white linen pocket square with an orange hand-crochet border from Tamarina Traditionals. I'm very happy with it, I haven't seen anyone talk about them here, but Tamarina herself hand-rolls pocket squares as well as adds custom embroidery/crochet/hemstitching. Everything is made to order, but I saw she had made this orange bordered one before and asked if she could make another. I'm very pleased with the result, a nice bordered white linen square. I intend to wear it in the summer with a royal blue linen blazer I want to have made, sometimes with an orange silk knit tie.

    The service was excellent and the options available are vast, even though I went with something fairly low key. There are examples of embroidery work on the site that are very nice, flowers surrounding monograms, etc.

    @Pliny that's a really great idea. I see you did that with Kent Wang squares as well. Is it just the three you've posted?

    yeah thx just those, atho i got a couple others for my children eg KW's Ukiyo-e print below . The printed silk seems to have more depth and vibrancy than what u get on paper. And perfect for an @menswear tragic.

    So I'm not misinterpreting, you framed an actual square, rather than print, yes?
