    Those are really nice colors on the madras. I don't like the green and orange ones.

    I went shopping for linen squares yesterday. No luck.

    JAB?
    Nope. 'Silk' only.


    Other 'high end' men's store at the same mega mall?
    OMFG...index cards with pointed fabric pasted along the edge!

    Must I go to Nordstrom's? Didn't have time to get to Macy*s, which is much closer. I'd like to see some first hand before buying online.

    1. You have less than 10 pocket squares.


    Thats all.


    (I have it, I love it, best storage investment ever).

    I don't think you need a lot of pocket squares to look your very best. Focus on getting ones that compliment each of your favorite jacket and tie combinations. Then, add a few fun ones for parties, dinning out, etc.. Also, consider a variety of materials like silk, linen, wool and cotton. Be sure you have a quality white linen one or two.

    Depends if it's a straight wedding or not. Straight = linen + TV-fold! Gay = linen + pouf!

    Whatever you do, don't forget the exclamation mark!!
