    Quote:I've found that everyone really takes notice if you're wearing a nice pocket square. They may not comment specifically on it but I think it definitely makes them notice you in a positive way. Spoo always looks great- it's a given thing.

    Totally agree. I've ordered some fancy patterned squares based solely on having seen so many nice ones here. As a concept, I always thought it might be too much, and stuck with white or solid blues etc (and this is a guy who has a pair of shark skin saddle shoes with green laces in them). But the Spoo and many others have inspired me to greater pocket square creativity, definitely. I think especially alongside a heavier, textured fabric, a lively pocket square adds a real zing and a counterbalance to the tie, that makes the whole look both more interesting and - through some trick of asymmetry - more natural somehow.

    Thanks! Jacket's probably too wide on the sleeves, still got the have it fixed.
    The pants are a bit loose, you're right, but i also habe a very long upper body and short legs, sadly. Not a good body for satorlististas ;)

    Care to specify?

    Wow^ missed that post from TTO (in spoiler); details for everything you wearing there would be a charm :)

    Thanks
    P.S.
    TTO who's your tailor (if you don't mind me asking); my build is similar to yours and I have trouble getting a fit that is as flattering as yours!

    My photos are getting worse...sorry, will find a better way one of these days. *Improved robo added!*

    This is the nearest I get to tweed at the moment. A bit warm but not spending much time outside today, and I do like this jacket. Left the pocket square today though, all mine seem to be white or some kind of blue; too "matchy", and white just doesn't work. Waiting for something new in the mail, but today i'll just go without.

    Love this tie; deserved a picture of its own to show the weave. Aquascutum, one of my favourites.

    And normal service resumed re. offensive socks/shoelaces, but I am a bit more casual today after all.

    Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's back to work we go (after a three-day weekend). The weather is cooler in NYC, and I can now dig out the double-breasted and three-piece suits from their hiding places.

    PS - RLPL
    Cufflinks - The British Museum (in honor of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee)

    It isn't; must be the unnatural stance. Then again, I have just had lunch, and look like I need to pull my trousers up too...

    Anyway, do you like it? I can tell you like it. Go on, admit you like it.[​IMG]

    Close up the shirt pattern maybe jangles with the suit texture, especially as they're both similar shades. But man, that fishbone is phenomenal. Great look.
