Hi Dave,

I would opt for a white pocket square as generally the tie and pocket square shouldn't match. You can also never go wrong with a white pocket square.

Second white. Generally when wearing a pocket flower or boutonniere, you risk going way too garish if you have more color at the square.

Ditto, white is the most simple and elegant option. If you chose a white shirt or a tie that contains white in the pattern you’ve incorporated it well. In any case, don‘t take any of those sets of identical ties/cravats and pocket squares. Big beginners mistake ;-)
