    does anyone ever wear a pocket square with a dress shirt when a suit or jacket isn't needed?

    I've certainly never heard of that. Most people who would wear a pocket square to begin with probably don't have pockets on their shirts.

    It's not a style worn by white-collar workers, though I've seen it done by blue-collar guys with regular handkerchiefs in their work shirts. Based on pictures I've seen, it was also popular among the mod/suede/skin head groups back in the day.

    If a tie is needed then a jacket is needed in which case, put in the jacket pocket. Or if you're wearing a sweater with a shirt and tie (also acceptable) you won't see the shirt pocket, assuming it's a shirt with a pocket.

    Don't do it.
