    There is something about that pocket square, doesn't quite work. I don't know if a different shade of red would work better, white would be work of course. Probably something less solid would be better. The contrast between the suit and the square makes it more intense, when I think that pocket square is intense itself.

    I agree. For my money, the best option would either be a sharp white TV folded pocket square or (a little more flashily) a white square with a red border. In any event, that H&M suit looks a hell of a lot better in these pics than I would expect one to ever look - so very well done on that.

    This is my first time wearing this jacket with a tie. The jacket seemed too casual for a tie, but I figured I'd check it out today. What do you fellas think? I need to shorten the sleeves a tiny bit.

    Great look! I love how grenadine can bridge the gap between casual and dressed up; I don't think a silk tie would look quite as good here. I'm not a fan of Ludlow lapels, but you're trim enough to pull it off.

    I like that the shoes give it some color. B/W HB doesn't photograph well. Also I need to start the dappered multi-colored pocket square group. Everyone here is white, tv fold but we need some colors up in here!

    Agree on the textured tie. Try a different color tie (maybe something with yellow/orange/or gold to compliment the blue) and use the pocket square to add another small bit of the blues.

    I am a big proponent of white pocket squares in a TV fold. I have a few colored ones, mostly solid. I figured this jacket is different enough so I tried to keep everything else toned down. I may think that because I have never worn this jacket with a tie until today.

    Thanks for the thoughts guys

    @JDI - I am a big fan of puffed pocket squares. Just grab it an throw it in there. I really need to buy some to wear.

    Also I ordered the SuSu jacket from yesterday (SB, PL) so we will see how it is when it arrives. I had to size up to a 42 in the fit. If it is all wrong, pocket squares and ties for me!

    Forecast is for 71°F today, so I am feeling rather springy:
