I ordered one of these and haven't received it yet but they look quite nice and would go well with fall sportcoats, tweeds...imo. I prefer cotton, and linen, squares with heavier weight coats that have more texture, while I tend to prefer silks with suits. They are NIP and the price including shipping from the UK is very reasonable. Still a few left for those that are interested.

NB: I have no affiliation with the seller and just thought I'd pass along the info.

Nice, thanks for the tip. I bought one and can get it sent to my 'home' address in Manchester, UK. Nice 'hanky'


I know it's not quite the same, but I did find some nice '2 dollar' cotton hankerchiefs last weak that would make good pocket squares (my first actually).

Thanks. I picked one up as well. Heck, how can you lose for a total of 3.70 GBP?

argh -- they're all sold out now, because you North Americans are buying them in the middle of the sodding night!

What colour suit, shirt and tie does this go with? Matching pocket squares is not something I do with regularity.

OK, I missed the second batch, but just when I was about to throw my laptop out of the window with rage, I saw Doc's post, and picked one up from the third batch. Thanks everyone.

Has anyone received one yet? I suspect they might be, erm, "cover versions" shall we say? Still, they'll look pretty with tweed.

I wouldn't think so. At those prices how could they make much money? And I would choose a different brant to 'cover' if I were to do it. They're probably an older item and they got the stash somehow.

I keep being tempted...
