Do you own a pocket square? If not, now might be a good time to find one because none other than Neiman Marcus men’s fashion director Nick Wooster (above) says ‘You Must Have a Pocket Square This Season.’
The straightforward headline is from Christianna Ablahad’s interview with the stylish Wooster for Racked.com. She caught up with Wooster in San Diego at Neiman Marcus Fashion Valley; he was on location to present men’s spring looks and basically show the fellas an up-close example of how it’s done.
“The one must-have men’s accessory is the pocket square,” declared the dapper Wooster.
It’s the easiest, quickest way to make any ordinary jacket look extraordinary. We do our own collection, Brunello Cuccinelli, Etro, Brioni, and you can never go wrong with white. It’s that perfect bit of polish.
Wooster adds that he loves “a hot pink or an acid yellow.”
“Orange goes with everything,” he reminds us. “I say don’t be afraid of color in a pocket square!”
Asked to comment on Tom Ford’s recent recommendation that ‘men throw away their socks and underwear every six months and start anew,’ Wooster replied simply: ” I think it’s a great idea.”
I like his thinking, but the reality doesn’t match up for most men. David Beckham probably re-stocks the boxers/briefs stash every six months, but some of us are still working those plaid Polo boxers we nabbed on sale at Bloomingdales last year. Late last year.
