I've been doing a lot of research on making them and will be attempting my first one in the very near future. So I want to know if you Love them, Hate them or are on the fence.

Love them? Post your Pocketsquare porn. Hate them? Tell me why. On the fence? What would swing you to one side or the other?
 
What fabric are you intending to work with?

I'm pretty mediocre when it comes to pocketsquares, but it seems like in terms of versatility, the ability to re-arrange a pocketsquare to emphasize different colors is pretty important.
 
I've come up with the perfect name for these: Gluten Free Squares.

Just think of all the extra business you'll get from the Celiac community!

Note - Not responsible for subsequent backlash from said community when they realize these aren't brownies or have anything to do with granola.
 
The first picture is all my squares, the second the only ones that I wear. I'd wear the wool squares more (as less as the houndstooth given to me by LC) if I could figure out how to combine them properly.

Sí señor. I initially liked the frayed edges in comparison to the traditional polish a ps denotes.
 
Maybe I'm just not hip enough, but those Tirleur squares are pretty terrible. Why would you want frayed edges sticking up out of your breast pocket?

I would have already purchased this one were it not for the frayed edges.

Tirailleur seems like a cool guy and he always looks good, but one things that annoys me about SF is how suddenly everyone has a "line" of bloody artisan stitched ties or PSs or Y fronts or whatever, or some kind of business that they're trying to push. I trust everyone here is just in it for the love.
 
I think some of them, Tril included, are in it for the ability to express themselves and not for the money. Yeah, they probably want a bit of profit for their effort, but I don't think that's their primary motivation.
 
I love them... although I don't have a lot and I'm not willing to spend $100 in one PS, but I think they put a nice touch to the outfit.

Don't get me started. Every jackoff with a bolt of cloth and some cheap labor thinks he's the next Rubinacci. Oh and how they've ALL got a story to tell...

Sure I understand, and I didn't mean to pick on him (he's far from the worst offender) and I don't imagine anyone's making millions or anything, it's just that every other post has a "sig" trying to flog something. Kind of spoils the innocence of the thing, for want of a better word.
 
Imhoff, keep a look out for cream silk and something with large dark paisley (or really anything with large swathes of color) as both are very versatile.
 
I was going to take this opportunity to announce my new line of 100% hand made artisan spats (2013 is the year spats make a big comeback) with materials sourced from 100% green organically grown free range cotton based on original patterns found in a defunct 19th century spat factory outside of Vicars Little Nipper, Oxfordshire, England but I think I may have to rethink this.

I'll be introducing my line of assless leather chaps later this year.
 
I'm a big fan of squares. Except when I have thrown on one of my "beater" jackets to walk to the dog, I always rock the square. I have close to 100 squares, most of them silk, but some cotton and linen (no wool, although I wouldn't mind owning a few). I have never seen much practical difference between a cheap square and an expensive one. Whenever I see an otherwise very well dressed man without a square, I always feel he's not quite all the way there. I find white linen squares very boring, otherwise no strong convictions. I always puff my silk squares, so hemming is not an issue for me. That's about all I have to say on squares, nearly all of which I have said on SF or AAAC previously.
 
Has anyone carried two squares? A linen for the day and then switching to a silk for evening or does everyone rush home and have their valet change them for the evening?

Unless you have a cold or strong allergies, why would you need to swap out squares?
