    Below is a photo from A Suitable Wardrobe's on line store showing a range of colors in white and pale blue with colored borders. I think these are especially attractive in the spring and summer months and are very versatile.

    I like how effortless this guy folds and wears his PS. It shows a lot more fabric than I like but you can adjust that to suit your own level of self expression.

    A good video on one way to fold a silk pocket square and have it stay in your pocket.

    What are your favorite stores or e-commerce sites for pocket squares? Feel free to add them to this thread.

    In addition to the ones listed above, every time I am in NYC I feel a strong, almost magnetic pull into Paul Stuart. They have always had a nice range of colors and materials. http://www.paulstuart.com/category_t...headermenuid=1

    What a great thread this is. This is how a pocket square discussion thread should be.

    If you're going to hand out your hankercheifs to women who are in need of them than I suggest they should be both extremely luxurious and embroidered with your monogram.

    Use sparingly.

    ^^^

    2 & 4 have a pattern too similar to the tie,
    3 is too similar in colour,
    1 is the most interesting combination, IMO (especially in a TV fold, showing the little squares and nice trim).

    I prefer the square to be an accent that just alludes to the other stuff going on, but is kind of its own thing. It should have a scale change from any other pattern. Also, I think the amorphous poof or the loose foldover looks better than the stiff TV. I like a little movement. A bit of drama, too. A few examples of nice pocketsquare action: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yep. those multi-colored squares are pretty versatile for coordinating with lots of different clothes.
