So I’m a fabric geek . . . I can get lost for hours looking at fabrics of all types. And I did get a bit distracted yesterday morning trying to assemble a tie and pocket square combo. (I ended up sans tie for the day.) I especially like all the bold, patterned linen pocket squares that are out there now. And since the linen handkerchiefs generally have a dry hand to them, I try to pair them with equally dry cotton or silk and cotton ties to keep a bit of sheen consistency. But I don’t get hung up on that detail. I also don’t get let dead-ringer matching get in the way. It’s all about style and confidence. If you think you can get away with it, you can. After all, it’s summer – finally – have some fun!
