1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I want to buy a simple white pocket square in linen. Where to buy?

    Kent Wang makes a nice one, if a bit smaller than some. I don't have any Sam Hober squares (yet!) but they should be as good as the ties, which are excellent.

    JS1357, In New York Brooks Brothers on sale is a good possibility, as is Carl (Shirtmaven on this forum). If you can wait a few weeks we make beautiful white linen pocket squares from Belgian linen. [​IMG] [​IMG] http://www.samhober.com/belgian-line...et-square.html

    Thanks. Yes, I sell a white linen pocket square for $20. It is indeed smaller than most, but that's because most brands sell oversized squares that leave too large a bulge in your pocket. After extensive testing and customer feedback, we have determined that 12" is the ideal size for linen pocket squares.

    Shows how tastes differ. I won't wear or sell one smaller than 16 1/2" as I don't think the others show enough.

    So Kent has 12" for $20, David has one for $30 and I have a larger one one woven in France for $60. Take your pick. :)

    Kent, Interesting that you see lots of requests for 12" enough so that you go with that size. Will, I have seen Simonnot Godard* on your site - very beautiful fabric. 16.5" is a nice size at times but many gentlemen prefer a smaller size as they just want a subtle look. We are always happy to make a pocket square of any size as I have given up trying to find the perfect size. For very heavy fabrics I am with Kent 12", for light fabrics 16"+ works well. For many others 15" seems balanced. * Western France and Belgium grow the best flax and weave the best linen.
