    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'd pass. You get what you pay for. Machine edges, stiff fabrics, no hand roll. It's better to pay $20 more and get a nice pocket square from Kent Wang.

    I speak from experience, as I own both.


    I'd listen to Ace. Why? He'll give a non-biased view of tiebar (do a search on his experience) PLUS he makes pocket squares!

    Thanks for trusting me on this one. I've looked at their website after posting and saw this: [​IMG] This looks like the edges are hand-rolled. It seems that the pocket squares I've ordered from them about a year ago had different edges. Could it be possible that they've changed the way they make them? Does anyone have any experience with their recent pocket squares? In light of my missteps with the tie bar, I wouldn't want to criticize their products needlessly.

    I like this combo. Not CBD, but it works for me and how I like to wear my clothing.

    I like the color choice, but I think there is too much going on here.. DOUBLE BREASTED, PATCH POCKETS, FLOWER, POCKET SQUARE, POLKADOTS.... I would get rid of the patch pockets, choose smaller dots in the tie, and do either flower or square but not both.

    Guy in the blue tie has a perfect outfit. Very Sharp.
    Guy in the checkered jacket is trying too hard. Patterns are too bold. Notice the other guy is wearing a plaid jacket and dotted tie too, but it is much more subtle!!

    I am a big fan of white, but this is too much white. Replace white pants with dark denim or taupe chinos. Alternatively, replace white square with a summery blue one.
