    CEP: I would like that more with some contrast. As is, the tie looks washed out. There's nothing really to draw the eye and... center the fit.

    As I said, if you read my post, "I need to get the sleeves shortened, no idea why i was wearing them like that, just felt like it!", I was just playing around with a new jacket, I infact rolled them down when I went out as it felt weird

    You look extremely smart with impeccable fit as usual. :slayer:
    I really like it when you use a PS (not often enough i think (for a guy with your sartorial ability)). Just to finish it off you understand. :embar:
    Your tie could have more colour though. :nodding:

    Thank you for your comments. I believe that the pic doesn't do justice to the texture or color of the tie. It's, at least in my opinion, pretty nice but as you pointed out I find it difficult to make a beautiful knot with it. Your pocket square suggestion is totally right.

    Proper or improper, I fold mine up and lay them flat in a drawer. Someone I know actually re-purposed a hanging CD/DVD file box for storing pocket squares - they hang, folded, and the box is clear plastic, so that he can see his entire collection at a glance.

    For the truly anal, Kent Wang offers a pocket square stand: http://www.kentwang.com/accessories/pocket-square-rack.html

    Spoo has one, and he's posted a couple pics with his rather extensive square collection on the rack. The effect is rather striking. I actually considered one myself, upon seeing Spoo's pic. But I quickly realized that I don't own nearly enough squares to fill the rack, and my closet space is at such a premium right now.

    Ken also sells the clips separately, so you can use any narrow bar (including that of a hanger) to hold them. Here's how I used the clips:
