    I received my first Gentlemen's Association pocket square today. Did anybody else become a part of this? What are your thoughts? I'm looking forward to seeing the future editions in the upcoming months.

    I don't know, but I give Jesse a lot of credit for finally introducing the word "gentlemen" to the online menswear world.

    If you ask me, "Gentlemen" is classic steez. Crispy heritage artisan.

    I would totally post a picture, except that my remaining stock (all of two squares) is at the fulfillment place. Anyone else?

    Guess I'll have to see if my square arrives in the mail tomorrow.

    The power was out because of the hurricane (!) here in northeast LA, so we didn't get them out until Friday and Saturday. They went first class mail, so they should show up within a couple of days, even for folks on the east coast.

    Gosh dangit I forgot to sign up - I had some problem processing it through Amazon and figured that I'd deal with it later. Oops. Next time I s'pose.

    Jesse, I can take a picture (with my lousy Blackberry camera) of my square and share if you're okay with it.

    Received mine in the mail today! Bad photo with a flash, not natural lighting, but you can get the idea:

    You can sign up at any time. The next square goes out on February 1st, and I've extended the offer of a linen square with a one-year membership.

    I've received mine and the linen square - very nice! The edges are rolled pretty thick compared to most squares that I have or have seen before.
