    Thanks for the review Alan. Glad yours arrived well. I'm still waiting for mine, and I was the first to order [​IMG]
    Odd, and, um, sorry about that. [​IMG]

    Well, with that fold all I have to do is turn it 180 degrees and it's a check only fold. I'll likely just leave it in that fold in the drawer for easy stuff when I need it.

    How do you tell if it's machine or hand stitched, again, and what is the aesthetic difference? (search function comes up blank)

    Machine stitching is much more regular and even than hand stitching.

    I picked one up to wipe my brow while slaving away for the capitalist parasites that own the means of production and contribute nothing to society.

    Note the two on the left, which are machine sewn, including the Aquascutum square:

    The edging is flat and regular rather than rolled.

    Ah. Does this make the pocket squares with these kinds of edges that always show up in Filene's Basement good buys on clearance?

    OK I broke down too and just ordered some. There still seem to be around 9 available.

    Wow:
    Bought this with buy-it-now Wednesday.
    Shipped from the UK on Thursday.
    Arrived here in Canada Monday morning.

    I quite like it, especially for the price. As other's have said, machine stitching and thin cotton, but a nice subdued colour palette. I'll wear it tomorrow (which is Tuesday).

    Damn!! I just emailed the seller and threatened neg fb (after 2 earlier unanswered emails) because it's been over 3 weeks since I ordered and I haven't received mine. The irony that I am the first one to order and then posted the link here is not lost but I am still pissed despite the small amount of $ it represents.

    Sorry to rub it in, but I received mine in about eight days. Very pleased.

    It's entirely possible it got lost out in postal land, and will eventually show up. I've had that happen with ebay auctions before, finally becoming convinced it would never arrive only to have it show up four weeks after the auction with a postmark confirming it was mailed promptly. Still, they ought to respond to your inquiries to let you know when it shipped.

    I got mine within a week.
