Excess fabric, what to do
« on: October 20, 2020, 01:37:16 AM »
I had some shirts made and got some of the material back as excess and I feel like I should use it for something. I thought about getting pocket squares made, but that seems a little obvious? Not sure how I feel about a shirt with matching pocket square. Any ideas? I thought about masks, but not sure how current that will be going into next year. Any ideas?

Shirts with matching hankies are a no-no for me, but I think face masks are going to stay with us for a long while, sadly

If you have enough cloth I'd go with a matching tie.  Local tailor already doing matching masks. Not for me  ;)

No prob, Simon. I already adhere to that. ;) Nobody thinks for me, but me...
