Any recommendations/ideas?

1) Stick with a white linen pocket square and white shirts for the guys. It will look best. Especially in photos for years to come.
2) In spite of the brides request, the colors you have chosen, charcoal and lavender, silver really works best. There is no changing that.
3) don't add a gold pocket square

PSG, sorry, can you clarify your second point? You are saying we should go with a silver tie in lieu of the lavender? The groom is wearing an off-colored waist-coat to distinguish himself from the groomsmen, and I can definitely get on board with the white linen square/white shirt.  If push comes to shove, I am pretty sure I can talk her out of gold if she wants us to have something that is in the purple color range. Appreciate your insight.

If you go with charcoal suits, white shirts and white pocket squares they will look good with purple ties. But, they will look much better and far more classic if worn with ties that mix silver and perhaps a small amount of deep purple.

Here is a great thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/62219/wedding-ties/0_30

and here is a pic of what is considered classic wedding ties:





Classic ties will look best for years to come in wedding photos.

BTW, I think this might be a question better posed in the wedding taste thread, more because of the fact that the answer may run contrary to what the typical wisdom may be in this particular thread, i.e., think about a silver grenadine or wedding tie and a white linen square.

Im biased towards pocket squares with pops of color. I handcraft pocket squares out of vintage fabrics and I am always looking for something bright and bold. White pocket squares have their place, but for day-to-day wear, definitely go bolder. Everyone has a white pocket square.

Many of those Kitons are great, but the brown and orange Cucinelli is pick of the litter, imho.

That last one would be fun with summer jacket at a party. ^^^^

The second and third to last interest me the most. I think a good general strategy for pocket squares is either muted and neutral tones, like these, or brightly colored accents, like many of the Rubinacci squares. Since your tie is often going to be a darker shade, and your shirt is often going to be white or light blue, both these kinds of squares can work well. Squares that have a lot of navy are more difficult to use IMHO because they're often too close to your tie.

The last square looks fantastic in the pocket as a puff with only a little bit of the pink showing. It can be as bright as you want it to be..

This is such a brilliant thread full of inspiration! Maybe a few additions from our upcoming collection:

 

 

 

Fine linen and cotton, neatly hand-rolled edges. The first pieces are on a special pre-sale for $15. We'd love to get them out to you guys and hear your feedback before we do the official launch.

 

I visited our fabric suppliers yesterday and got a bunch of lovely cotton fabrics that we'll include in the collection as well. Here's a pic:

 

 

We'll have squares made of these next week, $15 again for you. Got any favorites in there?

 

Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!

Thinking of picking up my first couple PS tomorrow. Any recommendations? Obviously white linen seems to be the starting point, but for one with a bit of flair?
