I don’t like wearing a jacket and tie without a pocket square of some kind in the breast pocket of my jacket.  I’ve gotten so used to it that it looks unfinished.  But, absent-minded gent that I am, I occasionally forget them.  Oh well.


Jacket: Brooks Brothers, outlet, $60
Trousers: Polo Ralph Lauren, outlet, $20
Shirt: Luciano Barbera, bought secondhand online, $20
Tie: Brooks Brothers, outlet, $15
Shoes: Brooks Brothers, sale, $400

Total: $515
At retail prices: $1600 or more

    Hmm . . . I see a companion blog in the works: “Absent-Minded Gent.” Perhaps you could start with the shoe polish story. Love you, baby! 🙂

    I feel naked when I do it. I’m going to start keeping cheap white hankies in inside pockets for other use, and I’ll use them if I do this again.

    Pocket square or not, that’s till an extremely sharp ensemble. Love the pants, but that sports jacket is absolutely to die for.

    Best Regards,

    Very well put together as usual sir. But how did you get those pants for $20???????? Luckyyyyy!!!

    A co-worker says that he like to break the mold sometimes, and not wear a pocket square. Perhaps he doesn’t want to be pegged as the “pocket square guy” by others in the office.
