    The prominence of the puff or the hank itself?

    The hank. I give little to no regard to the size of the puff unless it is absurdly large.

    If it's the Drakes hank I think it is, I have it in 2 colorways. I want to love them, but it's harder to pair than one would think. Personally, I think it worked well here, but ymmv.

    I don't think it's terrible here. Just makes me slightly suspicious. It's too muddled of a color to mesh completely with the tie, and the purple and green looks a bit off next to the jacket. I don't want to harp too much on the criticism though, because it is quite nice over all.

    Like I said to SB, I will rarely have a problem with how far out a PS is. S***t happens, PSs come untucked, drop in too far, I don't worry about it too much. But the pattern I would have shied away from. The problem, as I see it, is that as soon as I look at you my eyes go to that PS. That is never a good thing IMO. It also looks somewhat like paint was dribbled on it in this context.

    Often the best choice of pocket square is right under your nose.

    CM, there's no purple. There is green, but I think it's uncontroversial paired with burnt orange and navy. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

    jfrater, that is a good step in the right direction.

    This. Unless the square is divine.
