Pocket squares - where to buy?

Any idea where to buy pocket squares in Vancouver? Aside from Holts/Harry Rosen (not trying to spend $100 on a piece of fabric lol)

dunn's tailors. go in and ask them for their fabric book and make your own custom ones. i believe it'll run you 25 per? but you end up making some pretty uniqure ones.

order online at the tiebar. You can't go wrong with $8-$12 pocket squares and shipping is only like $5 or something.

Just buy nice handkerchiefs whenever you see them. I don't know about you but spending $25 or even $12 on something that just peeks over your pocket is a little silly.

I love pocket squares. I think they complete the look of the suit in the front. I'm always looking for stuff I can use as a pocket square.

You should always have a bunch of plain, white squares. They go with everything. I bought a box of them from The Bay. I prefer cotton since I like plain squares or simple peak shapes. If you're a more "poofy" pocket square dude, buy silk.

My go-to place for pocket squares? DAISO. Not even joking. I've had people ask where I get them from and they're always surprised when I say Daiso. They sell a ton of handkerchiefs for $2 each in all sorts of patterns. Some of them look horrifically ugly but remember that only a sliver of it shows. I've got some plaid ones from Daiso that look great on plain grey or navy suits.

I've even used a white napkin as a pocket square before. Unless you're Italian and can pull off the poofy pocket square look, keep it simple.

Practically any store that sells proper dress attire. Tip Top, Moores, Pinstripe, Stockhomme even The Bay.
