Not really questioning my own style choices, just trying to get some feedback. Also, i'm not sure you've ever seen a lime before.
Edit:
My apologies for sounding like a complete douche-bag, I wrote the comment with lighthearted fingers. More feedback is appreciated!

It's a fairly relaxed company but I'm still wearing a traditional navy suit, etc.

 

Would it be distracting to the interviewer?  I want them concentrating on ME, not what I'm wearing other than "he sure dresses well".



I would probably leave it off if it's a fairly relaxed company. At most, a plain white linen PS.

Interesting, my thinking is just the opposite...thank you for your input, it's very useful.

Consensus on this question is to always default to no pocket square for interviews, especially for entry level, internships, young executive positions.

Personally, i like a neatly folded presidential fold, linen pocket square, but the SF think is always against it... eh.gif

I would say no to a pocket square for an interview generally.

 

Also, a casual pocket hanky looks good for a casual look, just scrunched up, not folded.  Folded for smart informal nights can work though.

Also, don't you think pocket squares are so much better just scrunched rather than folded??


Yes and no, based on your style agenda:

This fabulous thread would say it is relevant to whether you need to look "city" or "country" that day biggrin.gif

Hi everyone, I am writing a dissertation on Ethical Fashion and Consumer Buyer Behaviour. I am currently undertaking a research project and need responses from male participants for my questionnaire.

 

If you could spare a few moments out of your day to answer the following questionnaire it would be greatly appreciated.

That should get them definitely focusing on 'you'.

From what I have seen these are a cheaper diffusion line I dont believe they are fully canvassed.
