You mentioned you are wearing an OCBD, which are often worn without a tie. With a normal collared dress shirt, I'd say....wear an OCBD. I'll say this: business casual is much more difficult than casual business (odd jackets, casual ties) because it is very easy to look normcore/Ken Bone-esque This might be a good thread to peruse:http://www.styleforum.net/t/253842/waywrn-classic-menswear-casual-style/22500_20 Glancing through the last couple pages of that thread,...
He'll look like a middle aged high school physics teacher in Nebraska. I do t know that that is the look he's going for.
Suede chukkas are perfect for business casual. In this case, because you are wearing them with dark pants, the darker the chukkas are the better. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.   I would not wear a tie with a cardigan (or a tie without a jacket, just in case that thought crossed your mind).

In general, I think that is why a number of people on here, myself included, abstained from wearing squares for quite a while: it's tough to get right, easy to get wrong, there is no practical utility (though I sometimes use mine to wipe the dust off my Surface), and they are really only for hobbyists at...
Other squares that I would argue are easy to use.   From Vanda     From No Man Walks Alone From Exquisite Trimmings   From Kent Wang  
Not at all. It isn't a rule or even a guideline. If you are assuming that a suit equates with a conservative work environment and that an odd jacket a less formal one, than the degree of deviance represented by a pocket square might be something worth considering, but 19 times out of 20, it is just personal preference and there aren't any real ramifications for wearing a pocket square outside of white linen or cream silk. Wearing a square is unusual though, no doubt about...
re don on don: Provided there is a good amount of contrast, I can see it working.
