    I have something pretty similar that I wore once with a plain white linen square. I also tried it like this:

    Thanks, colco. Nice DB version. The challenge, I'd say, is to have a pocket square that stands up to the strong houndstooth pattern but doesn't clash with it and the tie. It's tricky.

    Fantastic! What's the square on the right hand side with the cream background and some text ("Kelmer," etc.)? It looks very interesting but I don't think I recognize the brand.

    While I will not answer for Spoo, I will tell you how my squares are organized.

    I basically have two stacks, one for more fall/winter type squares (mostly muted colors in wool silk) and the spring summer stack.

    Each stack is organized by like colors, so all the browns are together, all of the blues together, with white linen always on top in case I cant make up my mind and go safe.....

    I just reorg'd mine on Saturday, going from a big glass jar back to hanging them individually. I did not bother to group by color. The only categorization was to keep the wool blend hanks together.

    I realized an unanticipated benefit of hanging them up. After I choose my tie in the morning, I just hold it up next to the hanks and walk down the line until I see something that pleases me.

    This is what I usually do. And 99 out of 100 times I end up at the same place: white linen.

    99 times out of a 100, I go with my Kent Wang Great Wave off Kanagawa square. The whites and blues are perfect, and it's one of my all time favorite works of art.

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]Hi Eric![/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]Thank you for your feedback. Truly appreciated and apologize for the delay as I've been getting this business up and running.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]I knew some people would initially be skeptical with price but we've partnered with some of the most famous street photographers in the world so the shots themselves are one-of-a-kind and a collectors item, hence the limited edition aspect of them. The squares at 16x16 are also handmade and hand-rolled in LA so the final product is absolutely fantastic, I'd put it up against any of the highly prestigious brands done in Italy. No questions. Plus 15% of our profits go back to helping keep kids off the street. So it's a win win. :)[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]I would love for you to be a customer and see for yourself how people react when they see a Gangsterchief for the first time. It's a guaranteed conversation starter. My friends (aka test subjects) have worn it at weddings and tell me it's impossible to keep in your pocket.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]I'm hoping not to use all B&W pictures so I definitely thank you for that note. It's something I've been on the fence about.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]Thanks,
    Vik[/COLOR]

    @Gangsterchief out of curiosity, would it be possible for LA based folks to check out the squares?
