Jovan, I am not making fun of you or myself. I am very serious about buying a pith helmet, and I am a great believer in having fun with clothes, I don't pay close attention to rules unless I am going to a formal wedding or other event. My own socks are serious to the point of being boring, but I may buy some patterned ones one day. As for ironing AlanC is quite correct, but if you are very careful you can iron a handrolled pocket square. Just avoid the edges.
