    I want to get an idea of how much SFers spend on their pocket squares on average? This could be helpful for all of us.

    depends - like most anything, it runs the gamut. cheap to very (for a small bit of fabric) expensive, depending on the quality of the square and where you shop.

    I have my PS made. They cost less than $10 each and are unique. You pick out the patterns at your local fabric store, then find a good seamstress to do the rest. If you have several made at one time, you can negotiate a lower price.

    I don't about others, but I am not too sure if quality is enough to justify a $100+ Brioni or Kiton pocket square.
