This Just Copped: Polo Ralph Lauren Tartan Wool Pocket Squares
$25 each @ polo.com
I don’t own any wool pocket squares. I thought I would rectify that with these Black Watch and Macleod of Assynt tartan numbers. Rolled edges, 18” by 18”, 100% wool, made in Italy. I also had my eye on that Black Stewart joint, but decided to pass. That makes three black watch pocket squares for me now: cotton, silk and wool. Triptych.

If they threw some white dots on here…game over.

1st World Pocket Square Problems
I’d love it if all my pocket squares were 17” square. They’re not. Many are as small as 11” square. I also have some sport coats with deep chest pockets. This is no a great combination. My smaller pocket squares often disappears into my chest pocket. I find myself fixing them more than I’d care to throughout the day.
I figured out a simple fix for the issue. It’s not ground breaking, but it works. Ready? Ok. Here goes. Put another pocket square in there first. This will make the chest pocket more shallow, allowing smaller pocket squares to stand out without being swallowed up. I usually use a white cotton handkerchiefs. They’re large and stiff enough to provide a pedestal for the primary square.
Ok, now that your would has been rocked and/or you’ve finished yawning, back to your regular scheduled programming.
Also, I’m wearing this today.
