At risk of gilding the lily, here are the details of my DB WIWT posted yesterday.
Pocket square: no name 100% silk bought from a woman who advised me to match the square to my tie.
Tie: Silver Drakes Grenadine
Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt cutaway houndstooth
Socks: no name.
Shoes: Allen Edmonds Park Avenues (if you don’t have a pair, get some on eBay, they go for a song, and they are simple and conservative - pairing well with pink socks).

That’s precisely what I’m trying to do here, provoke dialogue to the end of improving my own and others style. So, thanks to everyone who decided I’m somewhat worth paying attention to. I hope I don’t disappoint.
