This is a hank so I think hankie is better.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
i sure like it. very SWD.
you may suggest whatever you like. i can not guarantee that i will comply, however.
Interesting to read that, and some comments above. I think it was last month when I read GQ Style Guy (Glenn O'Brien) say something similar, that he didn't like the term "pocket square" and preferred the term "hankie." I thought he was crazy, so imagine my surprise when I see you iGents saying the same thing. To me, that's like calling a cufflink and cuffiedoodle. We clearly take care in how we appear and approach it with some level sophistication, particularly those here; I don't really think it serves any purpose to dumb down the term.
Just for discussion purposes, I'll let you know that, if anyone asks, I tell them I'm wearing suspenders even though in my mind, I always refer to them as braces. They're the same thing and I'd consider it fussy to draw a distinction. A pocket square and a hankie are two very different things, IMO.
Fantastic stuff, Moo. Love that SC and overcoat.
cross post from tailor and thrift threads but this southwick suit just came in the mail from another member I think it fits well/is in good taste except lengthen the sleeves a little bit and hem the pants + waist suppresion. my question for this thread was do you think it is tasteful? I am wearing a white cutaway colar white linen pocket square black captoes and a black tie that seems pretty inoffensive to me but I will let you be the judge
MoP buttons good taste?
had the jacket made a couple weeks ago intended as summer/wedding jacket.
jacket has twin vents, is unlined & each lapel has one key hole button hole. Peak lapels are 11.5cm wide (~4,5 inch)
Very festive, gdl
Stitch, the pattern matching is good, but the tie is a little too orange for my taste.
+1. indeed. i love that SC.
thank you, unbel. i figured it wasnt going to be everyones cup of tea. glad you could see good in the look though.
I love that SC fabric, gdl. Is it Holland & Sherry by any chance?
