    Jacket: Stafford (It's a dark navy, love my bathroom lighting)
    Shirt: JCF
    Pants: JCF
    Tie: J. Crew
    Tie Bar: Tie Bar
    Pocket Square: J. Crew
    Shoes: Mercanti Fiorentini
    Watch: Timex for J. Crew on C&B Nato

    Guys, thoughts on the pocket square? Picked it up on clearance during the J. Crew holiday sale. I'm a sucker for wool gray herringbone, but I'm not sure what other sportcoats/blazers to wear this with besides solid navy. Plus it's wool, so folded up the thing has a bit of heft to it, kind of makes the pocket bulge a little.

      I have the same PS (wore it in my WIWT 3 pages back) and it is a bit bulky. I've only worn it with my navy tweed sport coat so far, but it would work with dark charcoal as well. I also stuck it in the pocket of my black watch sport coat and I think that looks good too. It's a neutral color, so it should work with anything as long as there's enough contrast between the jacket and the PS.

      Good looking outfit by the way. I think these kinds of pocket squares look best when they're a bit disheveled and the edges and corners slightly uneven.

        Thanks fauxshow. Too bad the only charcoal jacket I have is also herringbone, don't see myself pulling double duties with that one.

        Normally on the square I do a slightly loose fold with the edges out, but this one I tucked the edges down leaving the fold exposed, the weight of the buried edges kind of anchored the square in the pocket, didn't need to adjust or fix it at all today.

            Kudos to Mrs. Dackman nice chambray choice, and nice Jacket/Tie/PS combo

              Mrs. Dackman should post a tutorial. I've often wondered why a shirt with a bad collar or a stained sleeve shouldn't be reborn as a pocket square.

                Yes, Mrs. Dackman is quite the DIYer. Some people keep their bookshelves filled with books, my wife's is filled with fabric. She's got a tie pattern that she's going to attempt in the near future.

                Great idea with the old shirts, I've got a couple that probably need to be removed from the rotation, one a nice cotton checked pattern, would probably make a pretty good square.

                    Welcome! Nice first post. I have the same jacket, Ludlow in khaki linen, right?

                      yup. I personally like the thick herringbone.

                          I pick up this PS every time I'm in J. Crew to see if they've marked it down just a little bit more. Hope you got a good deal on it.

                            Mine was $20, I think the sale changed to only 30% off when I got mine, otherwise it would have been a little cheaper.

                              Nice suit! You either need collar stays or an iron to deal with the collar though. Tie knot is off slightly, since the blade won't stay behind. Personally I think the tie is a touch narrow when matched with such baller lapels.

                                Damnit Fred, I was going to say "Baller!" Wait, I'm in my late 30's, can I say "Baller?"
