    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!

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

    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:

    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.

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

    How about linen white with red edge?
