I am thinking of starting to wear a pcket square. I have, however, no idea how one is supposed to be worn. So my questions are

1) Is t matched to shirt, tie or suit
2) How is it supposed to be folded
3) Is it something I should be doing every day or on more formal occasions

I already wear a tie clip and whenever possible I try to get shirts with french cuffs

Take a look through the "what are you wearing now" thread for many great examples.

Use the square to compliment or contrast the tie and or the suits colors. You'll also learn to play with complimentary or contrasting textures/materials and patterns.

Don't match exactly the tie.

The type of fold is to some degree determined by the type of material. As afr as every day or no, your choice and you'll figure out what you like as you develop your style.

Here's some help on the types of folds

The thread that you have revived for some inexplicable reason is 8 years old so it is far from surprising that the URL is defunct.

Yep. I'm poking around on the pocket square-suit-tie issue and this jumped up. Figure if there's any malware behind that link I could save someone the click.
