What's the rule on suits, would matching the pocket square to the shoes be a no-no? Is the pocket square functional like a handkerchief or is it just a flourish?

It's just a flourish.

Pocket squares are like ties--you just have to hold them up against the suit and see if you think they look good. A white pocket square pretty much goes with anything. After that, you're on your own. Don't get a pocket square that matches your tie (same fabric).

I remember my grandpa used them but they were functional handkerchiefs back then. I guess they evolved to be just a flourish nowadays.

Back in the day men usually carried a handkerchief in an inner pocket to actually use. The pocket square was a separate thing just for decoration. If you're using a handkerchief as an actual handkerchief, you wouldn't want it in your jacket pocket where people could see it.

Too matchy matchy is no good
Plus the ps doesn't really complement your suit

My Ride: metro.
went to my storage unit (basement level) that finally reopened after hurricane sandy. $7,238 in losses. incl. a $3,500 piece of artwork (which may or may not be able to be restored), 1 BB Fitzgerald Suit, 1 Dries Van Noten Suit, 2 J. Crew Coats, an antique chest, a bookshelf and multiple ties from Ralph Lauren and Drake's as well as many shirts. the shirts can surely be laundered, so I am not claiming them. LUCKILY... all of my Vinyl LP's/Tube Stereo system and speakers were stacked way up high so they were not damaged. those are irreplaceable. i have an insurance up to $3,000 which doesn't cover the total losses. but $3,000 in new clothes ain't so bad.

How do you guys prevent your shoes from getting squeezed and crushed during travel? Shoe stretchers?

What is the purpose of a shoe tree when your shoes spend their lives in a closet?

I rotate all my dress shoes. I toss the ones I don't wear.

Something is not necessarily senseless just because it doesn't immediately make sense to you.

Shoe trees absorb moisture and help preserve the shape of a shoe, else the leather dries out in a way that is shrunken up like scar tissue. Aside from unsightly creases and an ugly raised toe (both of which compromise the construction of the shoe) it helps prevent cracking in the leather.

Any thoughts on this? I have been in the market for a jacket like this (or something more technical from the likes of Patagonia, Mountain Hardware) as either a cool weather jacket or a layer under something. I like that it looks a bit more upscale than your typical jacket.

I'm not a fan of quilted jackets. They seem to be popular this year, but I'm not tempted.

I grabbed a Patagonia Wanaka (black) last year and couldn't be happier. It may not be the most fashion oriented, but it does the job since it is down, but not puffy at all, reasonably waterproof, and doesn't look like a typical ski jacket. They run on the large side (I bought XL, should have bought L).

FYI - hood is removable.
