I suppose the implication in all this is that wearing something out of the ordinary isn't necessarily individualistic. This reveals the truly difficult part about being an "individual." If it's really possible. Quite often, individualism looks discordant to the person who worries about rules. G. Bruce Boyer is a good example.
The question of whether or not the PS in question should be liked, or is, or is not, liked by anyone personally, is not as interesting (I think) as whether or not it is an individualistic move to wear it. I don't think it is. I have seen pocket squares like that before, worn by many people on and off SF, all were #menswear guys. There is nothing wrong with being a #menswear guy.

 I think so too, that's why I felt it appropriate to post a sarcastic remark. Not to disagree with him, but to emphasize his point.  As for the seeming dichotomy, I think it is more along the lines of an irony. An urging to be yourself which leads to thinking like everyone else.
 But it's so self gratifying. I, as an individual, can permit myself to believe that I am so important that the best thing I can possibly do is to broadcast how different and unique I am from all the other different and unique people. Be yourself! Yes! Of course, being oneself often ends up looking like everyone else who hasn't a clue what they're doing. The obsession with the self prompts us to identify ourselves as individuals rather than members of a group. And so the...
That's absurd. Given his recent history he most definitely should be afraid to take chances.
