    Foo - I don't see an image gallery to click for the diagram...

    This is really just a sideways variation of the old dangle-from-the-center, fold-in-half & stuff, isn't it? I seem to recall you adding a twist-as-you-bend that is not mentioned here - has this step been done away with? :confused:

    The only part that I read in that tutorial was, "Linen, as always, should always be folded."

    Click on the image of the pocket square. It will rotate the diagram.

    You don't like it? It is about as good taste as they come.

    It looks great, but you are in violation of the new scoring system.

    With due respect to the new scoring system, I would like to add a "+1" to this.

    After taking advice to change the square to white linen, I liked it so much I got married in it (day time). Other than the shirt cuffs needing a warm wash to shrink to post-wash size, have at it. Dare I say I'm expecting :foo::foo::foo:+?
    Suit: Solid navy peak lapel
    Waistcoat: DB buff linen
    Shoes: Black perf cap toe oxfords
    Socks: Dark purple
    Shirt: Blue/white large stripe contrast collar
    Tie: Shepherd's check
    Square: White linen
    Not shown: Purple barathea braces
