In real life, personality and likability are as important as ability. In a movie, it's all about the bad guy we love to hate.

Excessively, no. Sufficiently, yes.

Not really, no.

Once again, I just do not get the fixation on the contrast collar. It has nothing to do with whether you should wear an identical tie and pocket square. Nor is there any relevance to your pocket square matching your collar. This is all starting to get a sort of Eric Glennie vibe to it.

Some degree of ego is essential if one is to be successful in business. Listen to Buddha.

Of course, if I don't start dieting, I'm going to resemble that remark.

Yes, exactly. The trick is making sure you properly calibrate it. No one is going to mistake him for the intern. There's that old saying about how you shouldn't dress better than your boss. Well, if you are going to wear a double-breasted suit, a signet ring and a contrast collar, you had better be the boss.

I hear you.

This is why I have a more economical car I use professionally. It must be good enough to park out front of the client's house ... but cannot challenge what they are driving.

A Glennie reference is never a good sign. Still, think about it - some people dislike wearing white pocket squares (and probably cream), perhaps for the reason for the attention that brings the fabric. Possibly that is a reason for the popularity of matching tie-and-pocket-square sets (which almost never approach white). With a contrast collar, one is unlikely to notice a subdued (non-neutral) square. Of course there's the valid reply, Might as well skip the square. This is going in circles.
