    Are JAB and Mens wearhouse salesman pitching pocket squares?

    Odd to see a guy with a black 2 sizes too big suit wearing a pocket square. It looks pre folded or possible part of the set with the tie, but its there nonetheless.

    what gives? I'm just waiting for the suit that has a faux pocketsquare already sewn into the jacket :happy:

    Matching pocket square and tie sets seem like a fair addition to a black suit that is 2 sizes too large.

    Tried on a linen jacket at Massimo Dutti (higher-end Zara) and was promptly told that it comes with the pocket square. What? The SA helpfully reached into the breast pocket and pulled out the pocket lining, which was made of patterned blue polyester.

    Robert Graham jackets all have jazzy paisley type linings with built in pocket squares.

    I remember reading the GQ Style Guy saying he gets his breast pockets lined in the same way so he can pop up the lining. Seems a bit lame (and limiting) to me.

    ha! I knew it. that is so sad.

    I just don't get how you can put on a dogshit suit and then think "ah, a pocket square, that will really set off my kick ass outfit"
