    @Epicure The square as backdrop for shoe snaps is something I stole from @dieworkwear . Makes a nice backdrop when you live in a poky apartment because you spend all your money on new jawnz and avocado toast.

    The Victory is beautiful but I agree with your assessment. Too dressy for most sport coats, too much navy to look nice against a blazer or navy suit and too bright against a severe charcoal. I find it best with medium to dark-grey-ish worsted suits and I think it would look really nice with my imaginary grey flannel suit

    Huh, I use it as one of my default squares. Bit of blue and white nicely matches the shirt, but you can also twist in a way so it doesn't look so matchy-matchy. Silk contrasts nicely with tweed and linen, but also feels smart enough for dark suits.

    The only other square I use as much is a burgundy ancient madder from Ralph Lauren.

    Haha, there are times when I consider living in smaller dwellings as a means of having more to sink into my wardrobe. Crazy considering it's already more than ample by normal standards. But I'm not normal and this is StyleForum.

    While I have a grey flannel suit, I wear an odd jacket/trousers fit four days a week. On the relatively rare occasion that I wear a suit, I always seem to reach for plain white out of habit when it comes to solid grey suits, especially with a white shirt. Maybe I'll try the Victory next time.

    Thanks for these pointers. I suppose it depends on the tweed or linen in question. It just doesn't look quite right with any of the tweeds I own. I own only one linen jacket. It's a tobacco colour which could work with the Victory square. It's winter here now, but come spring/summer, I'll try putting this part of your suggestion into practice. Maybe with a bit more thought, trial and error, I'll come to find more pleasing pairings featuring this particular square.

    Goyser stitching. It's a specialty of the Austro-Hungarian makers like Vass, Buday and Rozsnyai.

    ^^

    What he said.

    Add Dinkelacker, too. Buday and Dink will even do cheerful looking multicolor goysers.

    This wouldn't be complete if I wouldn't add a picture of our brand new Heinrich Dinkelacker "WIEN" loafer, made out of finest suede leather.

    Those are beautiful shoes, but they look to be closer to nubuck?
