    I don't know where to start. I have the standard white linen and I know I can wear that any time I am wearing a white shirt with my suit but that's where my knowledge stops. I look fairly stylish and sharp and have a good eye for things like this I've just never used pocket squares until recently and now feel like there is so many different options, styles, and what to do that I feel lost on where to start.

    Any advice past getting the standard white linen? I have all the staple shirts and suits so are there any rules I can apply to help guide me while I just start to experiment and learn my own style?

    That's a cool fold. I wonder if it's easy to execute?

    Just tried it. Fold the square into quarters, slightly unevenly so that the edges don't line up. With the sewn-edge corner at the top and the misaligned edges to the rear, fold the two side corners in toward the middle. Arrange, then stuff.

    I had some downtime thanks to being stuck in because of this "hurricane", so I finally got around to organizing my pocket squares. Snapped a few pics of the collection as some of you have been asking for some time. Hope you enjoy. Details in the spoiler tag. Stand courtesy of Kent Wang.

    Thanks for the update, I was very worried about how your PS collection would fare. More importantly, how are your shoes?

    I'm officially jealous :drool: My collection is similar in terms of number, but all of yours are simply outstanding. I think I'd be worth stealing your identity Mr. Ripley style just for those squares :)
