Autumn is the time for new textures to grace suits and odd jackets, like these bird and foliage patterned pocket squares. At 16 ½” (42 cm) in each direction they are large enough to stand up without being too bulky, so their hand rolled edges display properly in the pocket. A mixture of 70% wool with 30% silk added to the weave to catch the light, they would usually be paired with flannels and tweeds though some men might use them to add a touch of sprezzatura to worsteds.
Choose tans, brown and light blues on a navy ground with a dark green border for gray or brown suits and odd jackets, or blues, greens and brown on a rust ground with a leaf green border for navy jackets and suits.
And that is the fall pocket square.
