What I’m trying to say is one does not need to “over-cook” the pocket square stuff or try some origami BS..

GW, a practised dresser who wears his clothes without pretension or over study, look at how easy his tie knot and pocket square are for him…
Yes I am HAWT & PHAT.. 33c @ 0730 & I’m wearing a DB blazer.
But, the cloth is 8.5oz J. J Minis wool “Fresco” better than linen or cotton for summer as the cloth has structure, very breathable & retains shape through out the day.
My buddies in HKG laugh as I was never a believer till last year. Now my summer travel suits are all Fresco.

This is the Guido I became addicted to. Subtle simple and straight to the fucking point. This is why he stays in my top 5 dead or alive.

What happens when Gianni Agnelli meets the Duke of Windsor for some rugby & a beer?
Most would agree the two most iconic, stylish dressers of the 20th century are Gianni Agnelli & Prince Edward (aka the Duke of Windsor). These two men together contributed more dapperness than all the “swaggers” (hate this word) have today.
Kanye W is FASHUN, period..
Stars aligned or just good pattern matching?
It’s hard enough to get a suits balance & proportion correct, let alone align the cloth pattern. In practice, only 80% of the cloth’s pattern can correctly aligned, so it’s up to the cutter to ensure the obvious areas matched - the front & rear of the body, the pockets, sleeve head, &, most importantly the sleeves as they lay alongside the body.
It is also important to ensure that the pattern is balanced in such a way to not be visually distorting. This is especially so with cloth patterns such as this double windowpane check that I am wearing. Imagine if your suit made you look round..
DubMunks are the rage at the moment, but in my opinion, most of the new ones are either overly designed or clunky. There is enough happening with the double straps & buckles, so sleek & simple is best.
Edward Green has been making the “Westminster” on the 888 last for some time now - actually well before Gen-Y or Gen X 2.0 took interest in “social media” as we know it. Very little has changed, for good reason. This pair is a special order for Leather Soul, & the Dainite rubber sole for foul weather or travel. THUMBS UP!

Most men who are interested in dressing well are subconsciously influenced by either Gianni Agnelli & the Duke of Windsor (or both).
Can you see what style cues I have merged?
