    I know the gold standard is hand rolled edges on pocket squares, but I have seen pocket squares with machined hems being sold around the place.

    Eg. See below.

    What is the SF community's opinion of this sort of construction? Worth buying?

    I say no way. ^ I have one with edges like that, and I always put it back on the rack.


    This SC cloth is insanely nice. The shirt and PS are for shit.

    Full quote for full awesomeness.

    Don't know the purpose of the buttons, but these tickle my "want one" bone.


    This is from Tintin's blog, right? I downloaded this picture and put it in my Sartorial Splendor album on Facebook. I know it's not advisable to go against a man who owns enough pocket squares that he needed to order extra clips from Kent Wang, but I disagree with Spoo on the suitability of the PS with this fit.



    I know it's not SF-approved, but with the contrast stitching, I think this is a nice variation on the hand-rolled edge

    :laugh: Im going to need more soon. I meant to say the tie and PS are for shit with this SC. the PS by itself is Hermes, and I would wear that shit any day of the week.
