Decent. The two locations in Chicago sell the Polo RL ones for about $20, and some Geoffrey Beene ones for about $8 or so (which isn't bad, considering it's really just a piece of silk).
However, places like Marshalls and TJ Maxx tend to have a bunch of cotton "hankerchefs" in solid cotton, patterned solid cotton, and cotton with some sort of edge border that are sold in 3 or 4-packs for about $10-$12. These can double as pocket squares using the TV-fold in a pinch.
