    A recent purchase, interested in feedback if this is on the right track, or closer to PS-fail.

    And here's another one of our bespoke vintage pocket-square. Even in this case is the customer to decide width and length.This silk was hand-printed many years ago. To understand just look at the pictures.

    And look at the beauty of the print still performed by hand many years ago. And look at this edge rolled up again all by hand. You can see very well the points of the seam. It is always a bespoke vintage pocket-square.

    I prefer the ruffled, just casually thrown in look (of course its very carefully positioned!!)

    First of all: Why is this thread so dead silent? [​IMG]


    Just had to compile some of the colour combos from S/S '14 from Berg & Berg:
    (no affil.)

    I think the edges are very interesting in this compilation.. It seems they have a few schemes (rasberry, mustard/orange and turquoise) that are general throughout the large patterned collection, but then the central colours have such a huge variety!! It's not as large as the Drake's selection, but then neither are the prices (I'm not gonna pay 65£ for a PS before I have finished school!) [​IMG]


    Enjoy:

    Should I worry the colors are too dull and dry to show up against a navy blazer?

    I would focus my energy on which colour compliments a secondary colour of the tie (or shirt)..

    And just for reference : no tie = no pocket square (rule of thumb)...

    Yes, but I also don't want a pocketsquare that blends in with the jacket//not enough contrast.

    The navy ancient madder pocket square may fade into a navy jacket, but the burgundy one is certainly not a problem.

    I don't believe this. I always wear a pocket square with a jacket.

    What kind of weave and weight is good for a printed pocket square?
    I have read twill is pretty common at about 12 to 14mm. Forum favorite Kent Wang seems to stock much heavier squares at about 24 to 28mm if my conversion is correct. I have only seen charmeuse and crepe de chine that even comes close these weights. Are they popular choices?

    And here's another pocket-square bespoke vintage still hand-printed many years ago. Obviously, it is the customer to decide measurements and color of the thread with which it is done all the hem by hand. It is a vintage paisley still hand print many years ago.
