Pocket Square #49: When wearing pink trousers…
…one is wise to avoid excessive flamboyance in the rest of one’s outfit. Here I’ve matched my pocket square to my collar, both a pale green, for an enthusiastic springtime ensemble.

Pocket Square #38: Wide Lapels.
The jacket I’m wearing is an older Yves Saint-Laurent. It’s a sharp fit, but the lapels are clearly wider than is commonplace today. One consequence is that much of the breast pocket is hidden behind the lapels, especially in my smaller size. As you can see in the picture, all that remains for my pocket square is to adopt a peeking-out posture.
In this outfit, note the varied colours and textures.

Pocket Square #32: Sam Hober
I’ve got a few things wrong, here. The square isn’t straight, the neck on the shirt is a size too large, and the jacket is a bit of a disgrace. However, the colours and textures work pretty well, and I particularly like how the green pocket square has just enough red to connect with the bow tie.
This pocket square is from Sam Hober, a family business based in Thailand. They have a “vertically integrated” business model, and produce beautiful products. This is undoubtedly the nicest pocket square I own: the hand-rolled edges are firm and uniform, the silk has a unique texture and a classy lustre, and the square is exactly the correct size. It’s a manifest pleasure to be able to carry around such a pleasure in my front pocket.
