Stubbs & Wootton Madras Pocket Squares

If you're like me then you can't afford 99.9% of Stubbs & Wootton's stock.  Well, maybe we can afford it, but there are probably way better things to spend our money on (like some apology flowers for your girl after she finds out you just spent 4 hundo on a pair of slippers) .  So today is all about the .1% and in the form of S&W's slick madras pocket squares no less.  At $30 a pop ($75 for three) they are easily the most affordable item S&W makes and, quite possibly, the most handsome.  You can snag madras pocket squares all over the place at this point, but I have have yet to find patterns as good as the ones seen below. Seriously, these are better than top notch.  Calling them pocket squares might even be an understatement.  According to S&W's website these "pocket squares" are big enough to wrap around your neck, illustrating that they can potentially double as a bandanna if you were so inclined to rock one as such.  Regardless of how you use it, you get a lot of good looking fabric for a reasonable cost.  When you factor in other brands, such as RRL, selling similar high quality bandannas (the best fabrics, non-run dye, etc.) for twice as much, that don't even look half as good as these, the idea of a Stubbs & Wootton "pocket square" can make a lot of sense.  Hell, if you buy 3 of them you could probably make these at home for less than half price.
