Gents,
I have an interview coming and would to bring back up this particular age old discussion. I will be sporting a charcoal suit ( moderate sized, peaked lapels), standard white dress shirt, and blue tie with gold stripe accents. The issue is whether to sport a ps or not (the interview is for a merchandising type position with one of the major fashion forward department stores), it would be a white presidential fold (ala Dom Draper, Mad Men). Would love to hear what everyone has to say, thoughts on the peak lapels would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

......if you have to ask this you probably shouldn't work in merchandising. You should at least be able to merchandise yourself.

I was simply just for some feedback on a minor detail. I personally would like to go with the ps but I am aware the vast majority of interviewers' general consensus that wearing a pocket square would typically be frowned upon during an interview process. Thank you for your input.
