Cherers, looks good but only concern about the grey is it looks like I'm going to a wedding.

pocket squares are a bit dress up / costumey imo. much like wearing scarf in summer. an unnecessary appendage. alright for an event perhaps but not for every day.

deuce wrote: deadly. its not a sticker, and im not replacing the lenses as i dont actually need glasses. i dont mean to brag, but i got 20:20 vision and everything.

so i want to wear them as an accessory, think 'geek-chic'.

i'd go ahead and give it a good rub with terps or meths, but i dont want to fuck the lenses/frames, ya hear me

I've genuinely never met a bloke in my work/via my work or in the city who wears glasses when they don't have to.

Quotes some reason don't work for me here so…

Rickrude…I'm Director of Marketing for a casino group. I don't have to wear a three piece, but I like to smarten things up every now and again.

Evers… Disagree about pocket squares being too try hard in general, though the blue tipped one perhaps isn't the best example (Mob). I mostly wear just a plain white one with a navy suit.

swiftus… agree the tie knot was a bit of a disaster that particular day.
