Pocket Square

What is Paisley?

The distinguishable paisley pattern will stand out amongst crowds. The origin of this pattern began in Iran and became very popular in  the 18th and 19th century. The most frequent question I run across in reference to paisley pattern ties, bow ties, and pocket squares is when can I wear them? What or how can I wear them ? The answer that I give ... Wait for it .... anything your heart desires.  

But seriously, there's levels to this paisley game so let me give you some direction.  Shirt styles you can wear paisley patterns with 

  • Stripe Shirts recommended  
  • Solid Shirts recommended  
  • Gingham Shirts Recommended  
  • Floral Shirts be cautious  

When putting together a  SharpCrispClean outfit with paisley accessories aim to keep the outfit simple. (I always encourage adding a splash of color) 

Paisely pattern accessories at times, contain multiple colors in it's display. Use this to your advantage and draw out the smallest color combination, which will essentially make the outfit stand out in a SCC type way.  

Paisely pattern accessories are one of my top choices because it demands attention, demonstrates personality and shows people that you have skills to pay the bills. 

The question I ask you now after reading this .., When's the next time your wearing Paisley?

Pocket Square

Accessories can make or break an entire look and with more knowledge being spread world wide on the subject it is becoming a hot commodity. An accessory some would say is the most important part of an outfit. The pocket square is that rare accessory that helps accent the suit.  It brings a splash of color and personality that can make any suit you wear look #SharpCrispClean.

            “What’s a pocket square”? A pocket square is a form of a kerchief that is a hemmed square of a thin fabric that can be carried in a suit or vest pocket. Pocket squares shows that an individual has a sense of style and attention to detail.

The limitations when it comes to a pocket square are endless. Multi- colored, striped, polka dots, mix patterns, paisley patterns, or four panel pocket squares, the designs are endless.

The general guideline is to have your pocket square color compliment some color on your tie. But why not stand out and be different, times have evolved and now the pocket square doesn't have to match as long as the color coordinates and ties in the whole look.  Trying to coordinate every color makes it look like your trying to hard and instead of getting approval you will get a look of disapproval. In regards to folding the pocket square you have several options, some are complex, some are simple but depending on how you fold it gives you a different appearance.

Always remember the smallest detail will set you apart from many. Women love a well- dressed man who pays attention to the detail. As the pocket squares makes a major comeback into men’s fashion be sure you pick out one that will keep you look #SharpCrispClean.
