How do we feel about pocket squares in casual jackets?
I bought myself a blue Members Only PU Vintage Racer Jacket this morning. I keep thinking of picking up an orange pocket square but I’m not sure how I feel about that look yet.
Would you wear a sweatband to the office? There, I answered your question. Go forth and be free, grasshopper.
Matching your pocket square identically to your tie is dull and amateurish. If given the opportunity to order two sides at a restaurant, would you go in on a double stack of salads? If you answered this question in the affirmative, you have no imagination and need to live a little; that is, unless you have a roughage deficiency. Then, I feel for you, homie.
appropriate to wear a pocket square with a v neck and a blazer?
Hands down, this is the most forced “street style” photo I have ever seen. I hope he got violently drunk later that night and didn’t realize his pocket square wristband had accidentally unfastened itself. Whoever found what looks to be an Omega Speedmaster undoubtedly would have taken better care of it than this boner. Social Darwinism, son. Social Darwinism.
Remember that scene in Pauly Shore’s
classic film Jury Duty where Dick Vitale is freaking out, rambling on and on, faster and faster, like the dude from the Micro Machines commercials, about something not even hardcore college basketball junkies care about to the point where his head explodes?
Well, when someone engages me in a conversation about madras on madras I come dangerously close to reenacting that scene.
And that sport coat looks like a 3/2 roll that’s been pressed incorrectly so shame on that herb for buttoning the top button. If it indeed is not a 3/2 roll, well then homie’s still a herb for purchasing a 3 button coat.
This twee insult to the Marines and good taste somehow made it onto the “menswear” dashboard, like it’s a good thing.
All I could think was, there needs to be a something like a Bat Signal to summon Nice Try Bro when atrocities like this happen. Perhaps a searchlight with a silhouetted middle finger.
But there is some sort of cloth in the breast pocket posing as a square, so, you know, s’all good…jacket saved.
