    Most definitely. Suit was purchased twelve years ago for a friend's wedding. I didn't know anything back then, but at least I wasn't wearing rented clothes. Given its annual wear rate, it's at the bottom of my list of pieces to upgrade.

    I have the same Drakes square in blue/orange:

    I also have a vintage square from a designer named Tammis Keefe who was a textile designer in the 50's. If I had to guess, I'd say this square is from 50's or early 60s. It's really similar in design, just more simple. I know these must be based from some ancient painting or tapestry or something.

    Anyone know what these are originally based off?

    Picked up a few linen PS's at a local store on the cheap. If anyone wants one, I can go get more and ship them for $15 per square, or $25 for both. (I'm not making any money on this)
