    Pocket squares are a fun accessory. But, like many things on Styleforum there are the good, the bad and the ugly. This will be the "thread of shame" for pocket squares that should never decorate the pocket of any gentleman. So, dig into the back corner of your closet and find that pocket square "mistake" that you made and post it here. I will judge the "winner" and send them a nice classic square. All entries must be in by July 31st, 2011 and posted here.


    The first entry is one I received in the recent issue of Men's Club magazine:

    This is an ugly pocket square gents.....

    I think I can do this. Can I post a group shot and let someone else decide? Or I have to select one myself?

    Sorry, no extra points for ugly group shots.Only one pocket square per entry pic. But you can enter as often as you like.

    Crap. :( I literally just started my PS collection last week (coincidentally, buying my first one from Spoo). As of this weekend, I own a grand total of three squares. I suppose I could post a "group shot" of my power trio.

    In case you need to buy an entry you can get one of these pre-folded beauties at http://pocketsquarez.buzznet.com/user/photos/prefolded-pocket-squares/?id=51382541

    PREFOLDED POCKET SQUARES
    PocketSquareZ are unique, custom made, prefolded handkerchiefs made of silk or fine satin. Each one is carefully folded and sewn together between an attractive insert card that easily fits into your suit jacket pocket.

    They save you time, money and frustration !

    No need to fold, starch, iron or re - position in your jacket pocket.

    Just drop it in and go!

    ^ This is a great idea. I can't tell you how many meetings I've missed due to uncooperative pocket squares.
