    Thank you for the kind comments. In the spoiler, I believe that five pictures will be worth 5,000 words of instruction, as to how I fold my pocket squares.

    How would one properly store their pocket square? Hang it or fold it back?

    First post in ages as I'm currently on a 3 month summer holiday, so I haven't had many occasions to dress up for.
    This was worn last week for my girlfriends mum's birthday.

    Jacket: Jack Wills
    Shirt: Ralph Lauren
    Pocket square: Aspinal of London
    Belt: Duchamp
    Trousers: Farah vintage
    Socks: Paul Smith
    Shoes: Russel & Bromley


    I picked up the jacket for £29 down from £229! I need to get the sleeves shortened, no idea why i was wearing them like that, just felt like it!

    Was lucky enough to pick up a fair few tickets to the Olympic Games in my hometown London!
    Here's me and my family outside the olympic stadium ( I'm on the right) and then inside for the 100m final!

    First outfit really looks good!!
    Good modern fit, beautiful colours, sophisticated smart casual. I also like that PS as lot with that outfit. :happy:

    Second outfit also fits you well.

    My main criticism is that I would change the shirt for a solid colour one, and I easily prefer the shirt in your first outfit because hmmm... too many stripes together and not enough difference in scale.

    Then the milky pink tie that also makes a strange iffy little knot, I personally think you could carry off a tie that is a whole lot bolder and modern and shiny (silk) , or even more subdued with good texture, but with a bit more bulk so it makes a really good knot. Use up more 'real estate' in the tie knot area.

    Pocket Square, I would probably stick to white cotton because of the pinstripes. rather than gingham?? (is it).

    I realise you trying to do pattern on pattern on pattern. To me it seems all too much. :satisfied:

    Kobe, would you be seen out and about looking like this guy. His clothes all look like they shrunk in the wash.

    What does GQ know about style anyway. I think you should seriously consider burning the magazine. :embar:

    If you want to look flash with a touch of class, I recommend the peacock thread for inspiration.

    Just because your sleeves have cuffs, does not mean you have to use them.
