David Marcheskie winner of the "It's Okay to Be Square Contest"

After a hard fought battle, David Marcheskie has been crowned the winner of the “It’s Okay To Be Square Contest” pocket square contest from Armstrong & Wilson. There were some great entries in the contest and in the end David Marcheskie stood out from the pack with his overall look and execution of the pocket square.

Marcheskie, who is a television reporter for ABC 27 in Harrisburg, says that “a carefully selected pocket square can set off any suit or sport coat”. As you can see David tied his look into the holiday theme with the candy cane striped square, red silk tie and red socks while hanging out next to the white Christmas tree. David feels that “wearing a pocket square completes a look, distinguishes you from the crowd, and makes you feel more confident.”

Being named the winner of the “It’s Okay to Be Square Contest”, David has won:

  • 3 Luxury Pocket Squares from the Armstrong & Wilson collection
  • The honor of being able to name one of the new pocket square for the 2011 line
  • Bragging rights of saying that his pocket square styling is better than yours (optional)

Congrats to David Marcheskie on being named the winner of this contest and thank you to Armstrong & Wilson for sponsoring. Thank you to all of the entrants and we commend on your great looks.
