    Where do you guys go to buy your pocket squares? I have noticed a rather limited selection at the department stores so I am trying to find some good online retailers. I know about Kent Wang and STP has quite a few Alteas on sale, but other than that, I have not been able to find much.

    No, Eric Glennie is not a valid response.[​IMG]

    C21 has a lot and they are pretty nice for the price. 20 bucks for RLPL.

    I assume, through a Google search that C21 is Century 21 and unfortunately I am located on the wrong coast.

    Forgot about Chorse's. Thanks.

    So far I've purchased all of mine from places like Filene's Basement and Loehmann's.

    Kent Wang. I also find the ladies scarves area of thrift shops well worth a look.

    I think someone on here mentioned that he just goes to a fabric store, finds a pattern he likes and gets a square of it. Can't be much more to it than that.

    That would depend on the store. It's surprisingly hard to find quality silks, cottons and linens at the fabric stores, around here at least. I got lucky at an oddments sale at a bridal store, where I guess you might find more high-end fabrics.

    What can you do about the edges?

    The edges would have to be sewn. On nice PSs, they're hand-rolled.

    I've bought two from Kent Wang, and I am happy with the quality (and the price is very reasonable as well).

    Kent Wang tells me that he doesn't give discounts for larger orders, or I personally would have gone with him. I like the idea of purchasing fabric and turning it into a square. I know a girl who can sew some edges for me.
