Anybody know where I can get POCKET SQUARES and/or BOW TIES for cheap?

I want to get a bunch and not looking to spend much.

Am I wrong to feel its ludicrous that Mexx has bow ties for close to $30?

Anyhow, does anybody have recommendations?

if you think $30 from Mexx is too much, it's hard to really help you.

i've seen pocket squares go for well over the $200 price point...

have you considered making your own? it's just a piece of material

i really am considering my own. buy some silk fabric and hem the edges with a sewing machine. might do just that.

it really just doesnt make sense for me to buy one for the same price id get a good dress shirt on sale.

Don't want to spend money on pocket squares? Go to a thrift store and dig through their dress shirts and button downs. Find one with a pattern you like and just cut a 16"x16" square out of the back. Viola, cheap pocket square.

Any budget suit store like Tip Top Tailors or something of the sort should have pocket squares. It will be hard to find a tie or bowtie for less than $30, probably, but you can probably find pocket squares from $10-$20.
