    We use our trademarked fluff-n-puffed shots on our squares - I think those tell you how the square really looks when in a breast pocket

    I should not have doubted you, Greg. My apologies. That's exactly what I'm talking about.

    In fact, that would have worked nicely with today's outfit.

    Greg, while we're here. Do you know why Drakes is making some hanks with a machine-sewn edge and others hand-rolled? There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.

    They do? All the squares I have seen are hand-rolled and machine-stitched.

    Well I bid them up that high, and I wasn't willing to go higher without more support from people. I just don't have the time or excess funds right now. Sorry. I appreciate the PSA.

    BTW Spoo is gloating in the thrift thread. It was him who outbid me. I cost him an extra $100 likely. =/

    I've never seen that before. Who sells it?

    This is one of my favorites this season, though again too much to purchase new (it isn't a Drake's)

    The outside edge is navy, I think, so it can sub as a dark or light blue.

    Edit: I should say it's available at Exquisite Trimmings (55 quid). This and the Drake's Elephant square are my favorites this season.

    ^ Nice. I have a soft spot for critter squares.

    One of the Vanda squares my wife got me for our anniversary is sort of a critter square.

    The description:

    Also, another flippable tie lot:
