BergBerg silk pocket square in navy, caramel & airforce blue edge.

That's a beautiful square and a lovely casual look. I'd never think to wear a shirt such as that but it looks youthful and fun.

Anyone have a favorite place to pick up their pocket squares you can recommend? Something along the lines of Pocket Square Clothing and Hillside?

It may be a little late in this season for this style of pocket square, but I found a very adventurous one at Boticca. Their young French designer Antagoniste does a "Bones" Pocket Square that I find adds a little excitement.

 

I'm actually affiliated with them but I don't get anything for mentioning this hear and Antagoniste is one of the few names I have mentioned around to everyone.

That look isn't working. Try a white pocket square to play off the color of the shirt or a red pocket square to play off the color of the tie. Also, you should fix the tie knot so it has a dimple - it looks like a fairly slim tie, so maybe a smaller knot would look better.

I was recently gifted the below square and LOVE it. I had some experience in solid color squares but had never tried a pattern one before and it looks great.

I'm having trouble finding a pocket square to go with the outfit in the pictures below.
Apologies for the pictures - the colour of the suit is hard to see. It has more navy in it than it appears. Was in a rush so just threw everything on - knot and folds are sloppy, I know!
Believe it or not, white is not right in this case. Of the two I think the blue works the best. In two minds about the green. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Any suggestions?

Both look bad. Why? Because the pocket squares and tie look awful. How can you expect quality input when you won't take the time to tie your tie properly or make your pocket square look its best?

Look, I'm trying to get this right. Doesn't the effort of even asking for help deserve some good will?
You of all people could be very helpful to a newcomer to this scene, such as myself. Your input (in addition to the above, which I have noted) would be appreciated. Colour for example....

1st one looks like a paper napkin - and I'm not just talking about the fold, but also colour and pattern. I would discard it. 2nd one could work if properly folded...

I mean he's correct though. Not trying to knock you or be unhelpful but the source of your problems isn't the pocket square, it's learning how to actually fold and fit it so it actually complements you and the suit. As helpful as I can be though, the blue colour is a better match to the tie and shirt.

I would go with a white pocket square with a coloured edge, otherwise, I think there will be to much blue going on.

  He's just telling you the truth.
