http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....IT&rd=1 just got it in the mail today.
But considering that there is a huge red border how does anything other than the red show when insterted in the pocket?
Use the "puff fold" and the blue design will show and the border not at all.
funny you mention that i was thinking the same thing when looking at it. but i usually do the same fold as the "cooper" in this link. http://www.neckties.com/foldinginfo.php you kinda push the middle down creating a flowery puff out of the middle material, looks really good with all the vivid colors.
I understood that, perhaps what I meant to say is how do you get the red and the blue which is what makes the square so striking.
Can you fold it like a W thereby getting the center And the borders? I dont wear squares so I dont know.
Very nice pocket square. Wear it with pride. It is beautiful.
AHHHH...MY EYES... YOU SENT ME TO ONE OF "THOSE" TIE SITES.... MY EYES... I guess I was referring to the "astaire" fold, which gives you a W effect.
when i do the "cooper" fold, i take the bottom half(the red) and fold it up behind the flower and jam it in the pocket, so that a few red points stick out.
yeah that site is really bad, but i think its the only one that shows different types of folds in detail.
Pinch the center with the index and forefinger of your right hand. Let it drape down. Instead of proceeding with the puff, use your left hand to twist the points loosely aroung the "body" once or twice. Then stuff into the pocket so that on the right you can see the "dome" of the center (just like a puff, but smaller) and to the left you can see the points sticking up, sort of angled outward. Not subtle, but it can look cool.
Very nice. I assume it is the Hermes artistic interpretation of this well-known horseriding manual (L'instruction du Roy en l'exercice de monter Ã cheval), which is in the form of dialogues between young king Louis XIII (of France) and his riding instructor.
ah, thanks manton.
i just tried that and it looks really good. never had thought of doing it that way.
Or you can use my method:
I found an image that might be the source of the inspiration: http://visualiseur.bnf.fr/CadresF....Y=Image
Wonderful. The Hermes squares last and last. Without exaggeration, you'll have it for 20 years.
Assuming of course that you last that long
