The pocket square and finding the perfect match

Matching a pocket square to your new bow tie is a somewhat delicate task.  One does not simply pick and like for like match. There are three critical components to take into account, these are delightfully outlined by thedarkknot.com, but in summary:

Colour          Pattern           Fabric

Each of these components need to combine to find the perfect combination - the main rule when selecting... the bow tie and pocket square shouldn’t exactly match!  While the colors should complement each other, replicating your tie pattern with your pocket square is a tried and tested way to mediocrity.  Just as the other pieces of your ensemble differ in pattern color and fabric (your suit, shirt and tie) so should your pocket square!

H O U N D pocket squares are coming soon!
