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.

Next in line for the short reviews from Pitti Uomo  presenting the fall and winter 2015 collections is Drake's London.The overall theme and inspiration for the collection seems to arise from this idea of “rugged and rumbled elegance” where soft materials and delicate fabrics are combined with casual elements and textures.In terms of ties the collection features a few new materials such as hand printed buff madders, printed satins and woven shetlands. Personally I’m looking forward especially the grenadine ties mixing silk and shetland wool - showcasing a beautiful texture to combine with your woolen sport coats and suit jackets.One of the highlights of the collection for next fall and winter were the Drake’s by Cleeve of London shirting that...
