Is it weird to own 3 pocket squares yet never worn them out ever at all?
No. But you should give it a shot. Personally I find the breast pocket naked without one, like I forgot to put something on. Start simply (maybe one in your pyjama breast pocket at home? - I believe you can get some nice Derek Rose ones on ebay) and move on from there. What are the neglected three?
Depends what fits you.
Personally, I would try T.M.Lewin at Myers, then whilst I was there, the other suits in Myers that might fit me, that I liked, in my price range.
Then I would go to Djs and try on all suits that might fit me, that I liked, in my price range.
Then I would buy the best fitting, best looking suit in my price range that I found that day.
Though, there are other options like Herringbone / M.J Bale that might be a touch more expensive (and prob not at Myers/DJs)... but can be an absolute win on special if you are lucky.
EDIT:->Sigh. Just read the next 6 posts... all say exactly the same thing. lol

I bring you...Blahman quotes:
"Is it weird to own 3 pocket squares yet never worn them out ever at all?"
"...the whole faggotry of suit tie and pocket square..."
"I only ever go SF style when I go to work and I don't even do that every work day...No waistcoat, no pocket square, no tie, no watch, not even a belt."
Blahman WHERE IS THE LOVE
Not really. I have quite a few but don't always wear them. Some of them only see the light of day at weddings or formal events. There is such a thing as "overdressed", despite what some on this forum might imagine!
I've got two ties which I've never worn.
Re : Harrolds sale. The female sales assistants were stunning. Quite a few dark-eyed brunette ladies wearing tight jeggings and heels. You get a mixed bunch in terms of the customers. On the top floor were a bunch of Chinese high rollers flicking through the Brioni stuff..whilst on the ground floor I saw numerous cashed-up hipsters under 30 going crazy for brands that I have absolutely no idea about
A little*. I think you should loose you pocket square virginity. Do it tomorrow. Make a public committment.
The first time can be a little bit.....awkward. Much easier after that.
*...though no weirder than obsessively searching for the perfect vintage tie bar, only to find one, slap it on and pretty much instantaeously know that some people are just not tie-bar dudes and that I was one of those people.
MJ Bale really arnt for me. I dislike their Unpadded shoulders.
very Nice mate, question what shirt are you wearing?
Since you mention tie bars, anyone have pointers to a plain, unobtrusive silver or titanium one with a spring mechanism that isn't too bulky? I don't like the idea of the 'hairpin'-like ones that slide on as I'd be worried about long term damage or snags, and all the spring ones I've seen so far are like a cm or more deep at the deepest point and I expect will sit awkwardly.
No worries, I'm trying to post at least 3-4 times a week in WAYWRN so i'll continue to cross post when I do.
Down with tie bars I say. Let your ties run wild and free!! (and don't tuck the blade into the back).
Do you mean like this? http://jpressonline.com/accessories_collar_holders_detail.php?id=CH166WCH
I have this one and might be persuaded to sell at a fair price if interested. It is rarely used (once so far) and in mint condition.
