What pocket square to pair with a navy linen suit, purple gingham shirt, cognac colored loafers...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Will be attending a wedding this weekend and needing some help on what pocket square to wear with this suit/shirt combo:

 

-J Crew Ludlow Linen Suit (Navy)

-Purple Gingham Dress shirt

-Cognac colored loafers

 

I would prefer a solid color square over a patterened, but I'm interested in hearing your suggestions. Thanks!

 

Wedding is fairly informal, as far as weddings go.

white linen or grey cotton, tv fold would be my recommendation.

Tie pattern/color?

A solid blue tie would be the most easy option. You could also wear one with a slight pattern.

No tie, going a little more casual with just a shirt and pocket square.

Please don't wear a purple gingham shirt with a suit. This is one of the most obnoxious GQ trends.

I actually quite like it when done well.

i wear it with a navy suit, grey cotton tie, and a white linen square.

Even though you say it is an informal wedding, wear a plain tie - if you really wanted to keep it casual, a navy plain knit. As for the pocket square (assuming you wear a tie) plain white cotton in tv-fold.

Unless it's a micro-gingham, I think it always looks distracting to the eye.

No need for a tie. White linen square would look best.
