    would a herringbone shirt count as a self stripe? no big d, because i can just use a butcher stripe too if thats too close to rule bending.

    @uberlazzgo: (Sorry if username is misspelled) that is very very nice!

    I have tried a couple fits and I don't like the end result. [​IMG] This is hard.

    You could always use a sock or a paper napkin, among other possibilities.

    It's starting to sound like that, with all these household item options, you are all suckers for paying for pocket squares.

    ETA:

    Socks would give me some pattern options. Hmm.

    I have no non-white pocket squares. I'll be posting a 3 pattern effort for entertainment purposes only.

    Hehe, valid point re: the sharpie, though I suspect that a white pocket square marked up with a sharpie would get no votes anyway. I sure as hell wouldn't vote for me if I did that.

    interesting. see below, i wonder where a vest falls. what of the core 4 (jacket or pants/shirt/tie/PS) will become solid in swap for the vest? i would think the core 4 have to all be patterened.
