Didn't intend to offend. I'm just not crazy about the combo. But I apologize.

HRH Prince Michael of Kent with Arnaud Bamberger of Cartier.

And this is coming from the Pocketsquare guy himself.

I did start selling a cream pocket square because of you, though. It hasn't sold too well, and I hardly ever wear it. Maybe I'll warm up to it.
I would be curious to here your rules (or lack there of) regarding pocket squares.
Especially since, in general, I am agreeing with foo.

+100

Although Moo, that does not look too bad.

+1 but will turn into a 100 page epic, with the denoumont being Foo going into Versace and buying every wild baroque pocket square they have, then recklessly pairing them with some Hermes scarf print ties (no green), posting pics on WAYWRN, getting confused with Label King, and starting a new online persona.

I'm getting married in late September of this year, and I was planning on wearing a dark charcoal suit, most likely with a white shirt and white linen PS. I'm still up in the air on which tie to wear. Is there anything other than white shirt/white PS that would work for this occasion?

The bride will be wearing a white dress (duh), and obviously I don't want to take too much attention away from her. Any suggestions other than a cream PS? Like some other people have said, I think the cream PS might look a bit dingy in comparison to the white shirt, especially in pictures with the bride and the white dress. I think I will probably stick with the white shirt + white linen PS unless there are some other really interesting ideas.

I wear a white linen TV fold at least 80% of the time. While I don't think it goes with everything, it does go with most. I am just not that interested in getting into the process of collecting and coordinating dozens of squares. I leave that to bigtimers who have professional grade display racks at their house.

I think my wedding was the only occasion I didn't wear a pocket square.
