Anonymous said: Hi Matt, I'm a Montreal resident, and was wondering when the Samuelsohn sample sale was? Is it still going on?
Don’t remember the exact date but it was months ago. I just so happened to be passing by their factory on Parc ave and got lucky but I’m sure if you contacted them maybe they would let you know the next time they are having one I’m assuming they must do it bi-annually. I think I might do the same myself right now :)
Anonymous said: HI, I bout a vintage givenchy blazer but the lapels are very large and cover half the pocket. As a result whenever I wear a pocket square you can hardly see it and it looks odd. Are there any folds you could recommend to solve this problem? Thanks, Oliver Kenny
In my experience when the lapels are very wide and cover much of the pocket I have chosen to either wear a solid square with a clean fold or to not wear any square. Although not wearing a square never feels quite right, in the case of some db blazers with wide peak lapels it seems to be the best option. I would try a simple white folded square and see if that does the trick.
