    Hello gentlemen, I have some questions about pocket squares. I am glad if you could kindly answer me.

    Should a silk made pocket squares print be two sided? If it is printed on one side, is it also visible on the other?

    What size is your perfect silk pocket square?

    Do you know your perfect silk squares thickness? for example 12 mm or 14mm.

    Thank you

    Simple and stylish. I like them.

    But if it would have to be about silk, could you have any answers?

    What do you guys think of the following KW pocket square matching a navy suit and dark green shantung tie? Assume the shirt will be white.

    Are there better choices that I have overlooked?

    Might be a bit blue-on-blue with the jacket.

    Of course pics shall be posted!

    That's a nice one, too. Just a very neat pattern which might be a bit matchy with the Sam hober neat Macclesfield pattern. May order that for my blazer look though!

    If you're a puff kinda guy, it might get lost on a navy background. If you're a points-and-puff kinda guy, the yellow would be pretty bold.

    What is the opinion of a white linen or cotton square with a solid light blue or blue with a pattern that doesn't include white? I have some shirt/tie combos that I have trouble complementing with my current square selection.

    If in doubt leave it out. Or white linen... :)

    Holland and Holland has just released some new 'Big Game' squares based on the work of Marcello Pettineo.
