    You can find pocket squares all over the place. The better department stores and men's specialty shops will carry them locally. Brooks Brothers, Paul Stuart, and J. Press all sell them online and in stores. Some discounters, such as Syms, will regularly have them.

    jumping on the Kent Wang bandwagon. I've ordered a couple from Kent and they are excellent quality squares..


    Quality? I don't understand - it's a small piece of cloth and ratty shoddy looking edge.

    Some squares just feel cheap. I have two Kent Wang squares, one linen one cotton. They both have a much more subtantial feel than my other cotton ones. I'm not an expert by any means, but you can tell the difference.

    FWIW, I'm comparing them to the squares you get from places like Mens Wearhouse, Macy's, and the like. Usually they sell those packeged squares for the cotten variety and some cheap silk solid color squares.

    He's already cheaper than most other places and the quality is there so I think that point is moot.

    Stalk through JC Penney and Kohls. I've bought patterned silk squares at both of those places. List was $12 or so, but I generally paid $4 or less on clearance. The quality was variable, though. Some look distinctly crumpled when you pull them out of the pocket. The rest of mine are thrifted or from J. Press (at their warehouse sales for some huge discount). If JAB had them 3 for 1, that would be just fine, too -- I think that would come to around $10 each, but they're much nicer than the Penney's options.

    If you're on the West Coast, then the Rack or Off 5h are good bets. Also look at Nordstrom mainline stores - they have a line of solid color squares that are their own private label which are pretty nice and can be $20 during a sale.

    I have a few of Kent's squares and, while I like the patterns very much, I don't like the small size he goes with.. tends to sink in the pocket a bit.
