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, 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!
