    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.

    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.

    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:

    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.

    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.

    Can't go wrong with white linen IMHO.

    How about linen white with red edge?
