What purchases do you regret? I'll go first: -A simmonon-godard pocket square which just arrived an hour ago. A Suitable Wardrobe had me all hyped up about them because the fabric is so great... but the thing is bloody huge at 18", it's too big for me to fit comfortably in my pocket. -my first bespoke suit, I opted for a lighter shade of blue based on an 6" swatch against my tailors advice... I felt ill when I saw it at my first fitting and only ever wore it once. It's left me trigger-shy to try anything bespoke or MTM again...

Expensive MTM shirts and suits. 90% of my pocket squares--at the end, I need and want like three of them.

I can't imagine anyone who buys anything made by Eric Glennie is feeling proud of himself right now.

Does such a consumer really exist?

I'd rather have a Eric Glennie pocket panel than my last pocket square...

Dude, it's a pocketsquare not a house or car. It's ok to make a mistake and not beat yourself up over it. Just go out and buy a white linen square, a silk blue paisley and some pattern in purple or burgundy silk. Have a double martini and you'll be fine.

Soo if so many people are sore about a square piece of cloth...anyone want to recommend a pocket square with this sports coat? Ironically I wear it with a very similar shirt but with purple stripes that are a ted closer together, also by RL.

I'm not even going to look at it, because I already have he answer: silk, cream.
