The Pocket-Stuffer

Sometimes the most insignificant element in an outfit could be the one that brings it to life.  What is a pocket square anyways but a vestige of the old practice of displaying one’s wiping-cloth?  Nobody really uses a pocket square as a handkerchief nowadays; like the neck tie, it’s purely decorative.  

Ray-Ban wayfarers, Hugo Boss shirt, tailor-made shawl-lapel jacket, vintage silk scarf worn as pocket square, DOM Christian Koban ring, Cheap Monday black jeans, The Kooples boots

Since the rest of the outfit is rather trim and quiet, I decided to exaggerate the proportions of the pocket ornament a little bit, using a full-size silk scarf as a pocket square.  It does fold nicely into a pocket-stuffer, but, mind you, it is large enough to wear as a shawl.

The Kooples beige suede Santiags: I might just purchase another pair in black very soon.
I always feel good wearing these boots, partly due to the extra couple of inches they add to my height.  You know, a little heel is good for your feet and posture.

    Wow good post I guess great minds think alike because I was thinking of doing something similar. I have a bunch of vintage silk scarves I use as pocket squares too. Keep it up my brother.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog – do I even need to mention how much I love the shoes? No. You should know that already. ;)

    You look amazing – so classy with the pocket handkerchief!

    That is an awesome pair of boots! I 've been looking for a pair of gaucho boots without being overtly Western and these are perfect! Do they have an on line shop?

    Stray: That's exactly what I like about them, that they aren't overly Western. Yes, they have an online store: http://www.thekooples.com but I'm afraid the boots aren't available anymore.
