No one has suggested the obvious, which is to skip the pocket square altogether. This is what I always do with tweed jackets, and I find that it brings the extra benefit of allowing you to go all Hamish Bowles on the tie.

If it's mid gray or darker: no tie; if it's light gray: virtually any tie. I cannot really recommend you a specific tie since I don't know your complexion or hair color (or, indeed, if you have hair at all).

I also found that some coats in light and mid shades of earth colors can...
