I decided to be the foreign student trying to be friendly and attending the American senior law student parties. I was told that "standard" attired is a pair of jeans and a striped long-sleeved shirt. I went in a solid dark charcoal buttondown, APC New Standards (jeans) and a pair of Lobb Jermyn IIs in dark brown. I put on my blazer because I felt cold and the party was in a downtown Boston bar at about 11 PM. I forgot that a navy/gold pocket square was in the pocket. Before I left the party, as I was standing with a group of half-drunk male students in front of the bar, one student suddenly exclaimed, "Wow! A pocket square! I've always wanted to wear one but didn't think I'd have the balls!" He then said something to the effect that at least he had mustered the courage to wear pink shirts, and the others in the group assented. He then looked me over head to toe and remarked that he'd give me an A for dressing well, ending with, "And those those those are NICE shoes! MAN!!!" I asked one of the host's friends if he thought I were overdressed and he said the blazer is a bit standard if dressed up, but that the square might be a bit over the top, though it would be fine if you could carry it. Thoughts? I imagine this situation is where I'd love to have a great leather jacket. Less worries about getting beer spilled on your jacket or sweater.
