    I think the straight lines dividing the colours on PS, might be limiting in a way you fold it. And wouldn't look nice if visible. If it doesn't limit you, you might as well cut the PS in 4 parts along the lines. However, I think the idea of using single PS for different colours/shades it works better with asymmetrical patterns. Personal example, here is what I use. Depending on outfit I would fold PS in a way, so the corner with certain colours would show more than the others. Let's say more Purple, or more green,or more yellow. This way you would still see the lines dividing the colours, however in pattern it looks more natural, than just the straight lines.
    Yeah, I love multicolored squares like this. So versatile since you can show multiple colors. I have one like this that I love, let me find it quickly.... Here it is: [​IMG] It has blue, yellow, dark red, pink, brown... Full pic: [​IMG]

    Good eye, Señor Pochette! (Did I buy this from you?) EDIT: Nope. Sartorialism sold it to me.

    I think it'd be bomb with a brown wool tie, or an orange cashmere. Nice square though!

    I don't have any wool ties, but I'd like to try some out next fall. Of course, it remains cool enough for tweed here in San Francisco for most of the year, so maybe I'll just ignore the calendar... I've worn it with a brown tie with cream/tan polka dots, and I thought that turned out pretty well. It's definitely not a color that you see a lot of in ties, shirts, and suits.

    My suggestion for this pocket square is to wear it in casual party or dinner settings when you are in a basic blazer, solid pants and shirt and need a touch a color. It will be a nice, festive accent. But trying to mix and match such strong color with tie and jacket patterns will often come off as a garish afterthought.

    Say what you will, but I am seeing a steady stream of "pocket parachute" photos coming in from the most influencial bloggers and fashion magazines. A few designers were showing them at the most recent Men's collections in Italy. Will it take hold? Don't know yet, but it could be "the look" in the coming year on WAYWRN. We shall see. Such is the nature of style trends.
