I ordered another Manhattan.
Cbbuff- I have three Hober grenadine squares. I was uncertain about how they would look until I received them and tried them out. I very much like the texture that they bring with a worsted suit. In gray-blue, chocolate brown and maroon the colors are versatile. They look great with a pinstripe or chalk stripe. Sorry no photos of them in action though.
This sounds like a SF challenge: who can best manage to pull off a piece of lingerie as a PS. Requirements:
1) must be worn (as PS) in public.
2) must have been worn at least once as an undergarment. By a woman. And subsequently cleaned, for christ's sake! We're not animals here.
So, uh, carry on, gentlemen. I look forward to documentation of your efforts.
I saw one of you talking about, pocket circles. I probably shouldn't be plugging the company I work for on here. Not sure if you are a fan of Viyella cloth? I know it looks different with the bias in self, compared to a merrow edge.
Simonnot Godard pocket squares- one of the very finest cotton or cotton and linen pocket squares available anywhere. This is my latest in blue and white which is sure to be in regular rotation.

Purchased it at Barneys in San Francisco
What's sad is that I didn't even realize we have a Barneys here. iGent FAIL.
I hope it's a legit Barney's. Beware: Barney's Co-Op!
Are you going to take the tag off? Would it be easy to do so?
Of course. I just haven't had a chance to pull out my Swiss Army knife
I confess that I wore no pocket square today. I could not find one which fit the bill and decided that none was better than wrong. Forgive me.
Pocket square newbie here. I need your opinions on which ps to go with:
Navy suit, light blue shirt, bitter chocolate tie. Which one will it be?
I vote the 3rd. Wait for the professionals though.
The second or third ones look good but I would suggest replacing the white shirt with the woven pattern with a solid, plain weave blue shirt. The blue will be a better color and the woven pattern in the tie and white shirt are too similar is scale. The 2nd and 3rd squares also have a touch of blue in them and a blue shirt will offer a coordinated look.
After trying the two with a blue shirt, one might look a lot better than the other. It really depends upon what shade of blue you use.
