Pocket squares are one of pieces a man can easily get some "color" to his outfit with, in case so wanted. In terms of pocket squares I personally usually go for either plain white, white with contrasting borders or then for squares that have a kind of personal print or illustration on them. These are squares that on their best are much more than just pocket squares - best of them could be described as work of art. Unfortunately they can rarely be seen as a whole as only a little part of the square can be seen when put in the pocket. I recently got two amazing pieces made by The Monsieur Fox. The squares are made of a cloth featuring 70% wool for a substantial feel and superb puff and 30% silk for a smooth appearance and slight sheen. This is a kind of blend that makes the square to held itself in place during the day but that still does not make it too lumpy or massive in pocket.
Both squares - one featuring old school Cabaret Dancers and one with beautiful and lively Arabian Peacock Dancers - are hand drawn and painted in-house exclusively for the company and made in Italy. These kind of pieces are just what I want from my pocket squares, when they are not white and plain. Something different, something unique and something still quite easy to combine with the rest of your outfit.
