    how should a plain, white pocket handkerchief be worn with a bow tie? straight/tv fold or should i just plop it in there in a seemingly apathetic manner?

    That's completely up to you. Try both ways and see which you prefer.

    ^ I like that. Especially the tie - where is it from? I think I know where you got the PS :)

    Thanks, Spoo. Tie and PS both came from the same discount spot. Tie is Polo and PS is Robert Talbott. I picked up another RT PS along with them and I'm wearing it today (I'm just like a little kid who wants to play with his new toys as soon as he gets them home...):

    It appears that the PS was feeling sassy and refused to stay behind the lapel for the picture!

    ^ IMO if the tie was a shade of purple you would be onto a winner.

    It's really more gold than yellow (my picture doesn't reflect the real color)...
