    I love the fold of the pocket square in the second photo. I don’t suppose anyone knows of any good websites or books with a guide to folding pocket squares? I have no artistic flair whatsoever so it looks messy when i improvise.

    It does my heart good to see that people are worried about how to fold their hankies when the whole world is being destroyed! No matter what Armageddon is facing us around the corner, the streets will still have a few smartly-dressed gents who have artistically folded pocket squares. Civilization will survive!!

    but kurt,
    it does worry me when people are more concerned about their pocket square than what their government is up to..
    we still need a civilisation to look after in the first place

    Pocket hankies for ‘snuff’…hmm… I just can’t get that out of my mind as I look at these. I am holding them in contempt right now.

    Can anybody tell me how to do the knot tie to fly over the shirt? My ties are always too close to the shirt and I love the way they are in the photos. I don’t know if you know what I mean …

    Boggi is a brand with a lot of potential given the increasing levels of Sartorial awareness around the globe!

    The stores in Milan strike me as an Italian version of the Hackett stores here in London.

    Good solid ‘high street brand’!

    In Milan there is also a Boggi outlet with 20% off year long reduction.
    Anyway they seem improving, the price quality ratio has always been excellent, but they were a bit too conservative. From these pictures it seems a bit more fashion.
    Before doing any shopping in Milan take a good check people out.
    You can get a lot of ideas on current styles.

    easy there fraggle rock, everything has to do with something greater. Even the most shallow perspective can be deeply superficial.

    Guys, sorry to be the one to tell you but Boggi is the yawn of fashion… Nice, orderly, composed and dignified and all that, granted. But any designer can do that in their sleep. Good compromise for a birthday present to a person you don’t know that well and are not ready to spend real wow money on, if you see what I mean.

    Did I mention I am from Milan?

    I have on a Boggi shirt right now. I was in Milan in 2001 and bought a couple of their shirts. I’m glade to see that the prices hasn’t changed. I paid around $65 back then also.

    Oone thing I loved about these shirts compared to the off the rack here in the U.S. is that they are cut for a “normal” person. The U.S. cut is for FAT people. For example, go into a Brooks Brothers and buy a shirt with a 16″ collar and you will get a shirt that’s built for a fatty. I have enough material around the body to make 2 shirts.

    Anyway, I also recommend a shirt store on Via Dante that will custome make a shirt for about $65!!! In Milan, there are also stores selling knit ties for $16!!! It’s the same design and stuff that Barney’s have for $160! You gotta be an idiot to pay that.

    I’ve made a decision to only buy stuff from Milan 5 years ago. You can fly there and back for free from the savings from buying all the great clothing for pennies on the dollar.

    pinch middle of square; then fold in half so as to create fountain fold; fountain should blouse to parallel angle of lapel; manipulate to desired proportion; voila!

    @ Anonymous:A Cavendish knot sits like that on the shirt; it is the asymmetrical version of the full-Windsor. It is a little large, but I coincidentally have the same brown tie that is pictured, and it is thin, and therefore would support the knot well, especially with the cutaway collar. http://www.totieatie.com/cavendish.asp for instructions.
