Okay, so do I wear a pocket square on this vest, which has four pockets, but lower than average for standard pocket square-usage:

Jeremie, i know breast pocket wallets are extremely available. I've seen them at the men's stores i frequent, and they're all over the internet (of course).

 

In other news, despite it being the start of winter, i picked up a very nice (for a cheap suit) pale grey summer wool suit. Sure, it's not canvassed, but i can get away with the softer look. It will go baggy, but i will get more than my money's worth from it before then. ;)

 

Here's a photo which doesn't really do it, or me, any justice (haha).

Hi gents,

Does anyone know where I can get a wallet that fits in the brest pocket of my suits.

Perhaps then, sir, you are missing the point? Mine were working men who didn't have much need for suits in their daily life but most certainly knew how to wear one when it was called for & could select one that was a good investment, well made, & well fitted. And a well fitted suit should not be confining. And a well selected fabric will not make you sweat any more than any other garment. But of course, you are entitled to your opinion... I'm sure many others on this forum would beg to differ.

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
