    Choose from what I own, or my ideal eight? Or both?

    Any combination of what you own, would like to own. The idea is a well edited, versatile collection of eight for year-round wear.

    This is a good exercise. I wonder if anything I own will make the cut. It would be a tad humbling if not...

    I just put up googled pics of things I liked for my top 8, not anything I own.

    I actually love this idea/question because I am someone just getting into the pocket square realm and this will help to build a strong base without going in clueless..

    Good to hear. That was the idea.

    I get a ton of PM's from guys asking what their next pockets squares should be once they buy their white linen one. It really helps to see examples of a few good ones that work with a lot of different colors and patterns of clothing. These are the ones that are worth seeking out. You will probably wear them for many years to come.

    I suspect if I did this again in a week, my specific choices would change a bit, but the types would stay the same. I take white linen as a given, leaving seven.

    Two of my own:

    I guess I've just created a shopping list for myself!

    Well with just two sets of posts, SB and mine, the cross pollination is easy to spot :

    Blue gingham
    white linen
    dark toned paisley
    navy blue with white dots

    Interesting to see if others say the same.

    Good exercise, PSG.

    I would happily take all of these in just about every available colorway, though. I suspect you'd say the same. I'm hoping that Gus will favor us with his own list after we get a few more responses.
