I own the suit you see in the picture, the colour is navy. Shoes will be brown. Shirt will be light blue.
I also really hate matching a tie and a pocket square. A pocket square (when its not plain white) is a way to express your personality, its a statement piece - so when you put absolutely no effort into purchasing it, buying a set.... It's just completely wrong!
It depends on the dresscode and the season / time of day, I'd say. If it's this spring, I'd recommend the first option.
Get a white cotton pocketsquare and fold it square, then tie a knot which compliments you and the shirt collar :)
Definitely the first one.
Usually when you go for something like off-white or pocket square in white (silk) it is to compliment the bride's dress.
- Remember to wear what you truly feel is best for you. I just give advice based on what I'd personally do, or what I usually tell customers in my store (I work with suits)
Very true indeed :) Great points..
