    A summery outfit for a warm spring day:

    - RAF blue cotton suit by Deer Style, with waist patch pockets;
    - Light blue and white bengal stripe shirt by Deer Style, with wide spread collar;
    - Brown grenadine tie by the Tie Rack (surprisingly, they make nice grenadine ties);
    - Herringbone brown PoW check pocket square;
    - C&J Drummond in beechnut calf.

    I've worn a very very similar combination a bunch of times. Looks great.

    Thank you both for the kind comments.

    I was actually thinking of wearing a pair of Santoni double monks today, to complete the rather Italian look of my outfit, but ended up picking the C&Js instead. I've got several pairs of C&Js and I really like their leather - it takes a nice shine and develops a really nice "depth" after a bit of polishing.

    Hey guys

    I picked up this cotton Uniqlo jacket last week:

    [​IMG]

    I'm going to wear it with chinos (with maybe a knit tie) and with dark denim (with no tie).

    Two questions:
    1) Would you wear a PS with this?
    2) If so, what kind? I'm thinking silk would perhaps be too formal?

    IMO Silk is too formal, stick to that cotton stuff

    Linen square maybe?

    I think you'd be fine with denim, so long as you're not wearing low rise jeans with a short jacket.

    Nice jacket!. I'd definitely wear a handkerchief with that - white linen, tv fold would be my first choice but I also like the idea of a contrast between the texture of the jacket and the handkerchief so I wouldn't rule out silk. You've got a well developed sense of taste so go with your gut. Wear whatever handkerchief you like and if it feels right, it will be.

    But I don't know if they are chinos. If anyone knows please weigh in your thoughts.

    You've made a thread dedicated to this exact question, and someone there has taken the time to answer you rather usefully. Given that, do you need to post the same thing here with by a massive picture? I couldn't guess whether that's a twill from that picture, but it isn't rocket science...

    I usually prefer matte pocket squares. I love my vintage kimono silk one from Vanda

    I dont know how to fold a PS, i just stuff mine in the pocket.

    What Mr Nice Guy Gerry said. I got a similar jacket from Boglioli for my birthday the other day. Works well with dark denim and suede chukka or chinos and leather loafers, throw on a knit tie if you like (and I know you do). Have had both silk and cotton pocket square on with it and both look great.

    Gerry's advice to trust your instincts is best. I think we are too often fearfully on making a "mistake" in the way we dress, when that is the best way to learn what can work for us and develop our own sense of style.

    There is a theory that everything looks better when worn with confidence and I think that works for those who understand the basic of dressing well (def. you). Wear it with pride and try out different things. Hell, if you want some (usually polite and constructive) criticism be one of those brave souls who posts a picture (since you have prize winning skills if memory serves, from the Henry Carter competition).

    For reference this is my jacket.
