    Looks great, but I'm still struggling with pocket squares.

    oh - nice. I brought one with me to my "Bar" meeting here in the Islands. I may have to wear one to an evening function. Delightful.

    Do the first step of a four-in-hand and stop.

    It is a great way to wear a silk scarf. The summer version uses a neckerchief about 27" square.

    How can we bring back, what for some, never left

    I'm a big fan of the ascot, and wear the few that I have often. I dont think they look costumey, you just need to know your audience

    Nice. It could work well for many guys whose style might be ill-suited to the traditional ascot.

    What do you guys think???
    I dislike them. They look pretentious and affected to me

    Edit: btw, I clicked but didn't see any picture of ascot-wearing men

    At the Handel Messiah sing-along at the Kennedy Center this year I saw a coupled of men wearing ascots to great effect---I was almost tempted...
