My favorite topic.
Funny thing is, I have two different sizes and love them both. Good luck, Rudals. Can't wait to see how it goes....I'm expecting it will exceed all of your expectations.
Just to be clear really it was/is the flag of St. George that suffers from links to extreme views. Though England's flag has been reclaimed somewhat by patriots and proudly run up on specific occasions.
Great selection. Wear in good health. Would you mind sharing links to the blue in the middle and brown to the right? That second green one looks great, it's on my order list also.
The Union Jack was mostly lost to Vivienne Westwood.
In menswear (or should that have a hashtag?):
How would you combine this pocket square?
It's described as "salmon with taupe paisley" and is cotton/linen blend. I'm looking at using it with SC + odd pants mostly (+ tie) so not with suits. Potential combinations would be much appreciated. Thanks.
It's nice, but may be a little tough. Or at least it would be for me because I generally don't do that splash-of-color square which doesn't pick up anything else. But at the same time, for that sort of square use, it looks ideal. It should fit well texturally with a lot of less than super smooth jacket fabrics. It's not bright enough to really clash with much. Probably enough brown for it to work with ties heavy in tan/light brown or against a brown jacket. It's seems very springlike.
Thank you for your input. My initial though was actually navy SC with tan/brown trousers and a brown tie (not warm brown).
I'm trying to learn color/texture combinations in general before nailing how to use items based on season (disregarding the obvious things). Thanks for the tip, though. Much appreciated.
Should work in that context. The easiest squares to us, I've found, are those with a large pattern with at least 3 colors. Kent Wang and Drakes have a bunch of these.
The most versatile square I own:
The problem with cotton-linen is that it's often too big for your pocket when you do anything other than a TV fold, and a TV fold with a coloured square looks weird. I used to own one, but I returned it because of that.
Thanks for the tip. Great looking PSs. That second Drake's looks looks appealing to me. I will try to find it.
I agree. Generally it looks weird, or st least such PSs aren't versatile. But I also think they can look great if used correctly. Now, while this particular one is hard to work, I have another in a brown shade and an olive green, which I think works. It isn't as conservative as a white linen, but not as playful as others, such as the ones Clag advised. It's a middle way. Or am I getting it wrong?
Meh, any situation where a coloured TV fold hanky is appropriate a puffed square is appropriate as well, and it looks infinitely better. The multiple ways of using a square that's not linen makes it much more versatile. If you don't have more than 10 great pocket squares it's best to get ones that are as versatile as possible. Lots of big picture designs such as those KWs or Drakes can be folded to show different colours, which makes them much more useful.
