    There is a dog one in there. A bit more animated than the one last season.

    I don't understand the bold.

    I'm really not a fan of the round pocket square, I find looks like an explosion of silk

    Photo grab from Mr. Porter - You can clearly see the machine stitched edges (forgot what the stitch is called, but it's the one to stop fraying!)

    I wonder which is more economical for the fabric, to cut squares or circles.. squares, right?

    The pocket circle is merely an attempt to innovate in an established niche. I suspect the stitching method was chosen to allow for a contrasting edge without requiring the commissioning of custom prints/weaves which incorporate the contrasting circle in the design. There's no reason a pocket circle couldn't have a hand-rolled edge.

    The examples I've encountered have been in heavier fabrics like wool and cotton, and they are distinctive in the pocket. I believe a larger pocket circle made out of more typical hank fabrics like silk or the silk/wool that Drakes uses, and hand-rolled, would actually be more subtle and work pretty well.

    I thought a hint would be enough. I don't like to advertise (too much) in threads that aren't my affiliate. Sorry about that.

    Haha. No worries. I thought you were just posting more pics like you did in the previous posts. In any event, I got what I wanted. [​IMG]

    Would this make for a good pocket square? It's the Chrysler Building elevator door (full photo).

    I never use photographs but I think this is a bit different as the wood inlay is effectively like illustration. This photo isn't perfect with some unevenness in the lighting and perspective; I would get a proper photo done.

    Oh, I have some new squares in the works, including these two and some others. Should be finished in about two months.

    I'll vote no, Kent. It's sort of neither here nor there -- it lacks the charm of the representational squares. The view of Edo will be killer, though, and the new chart would be very wearable.

    If you want an architectural element, why not cast an eye towards mosaics?

    I vote yes on the Chrysler building square. Like the colors and patterns.

    If I am allowed to have a say, I think the Chrysler will make a good square. In my tiny experience as a squares seller, these shades tend to be popular.

    Needless to say, the other 2 are amazing too.
