1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Why not a pattern pocket square with a copper/rust/brown color?

    Cream silk is the vanilla ice cream of pocket squares. This jacket fabric is fabulous. You could have so much more fun highlighting colors in the pattern and in your shirt and tie than cream. Sorry, just sayin.

    I don't think it's just me - I have seen an absolute profusion of PSs in DC recently. Seems like one guy out of 5 in a suit has included a PS. Anybody else notice the same thing?

    probably the "mad men" effect...

    although i've never watched a single episode of the show
    for me it's the styleforum effect

    Relative to the top photo with the pocket square with the colored border, how do you fold it to get it to look that way? Or is it just the skill born from practice? Sorry for the noobie question, but I have a bordered pocket square that I hope to get looking like that one before Saturday night!
