    For what its worth I bought... and wore the above square. Because it is a tad quiet, I paired it with a jacket that does a lot of talking.

    Another meek square with a boisterous jacket. Feedback is appreciated.

    The colors are too similar IMO. Almost making the PS invisible from a distance.

    Taking the advice of @vriche I have employed a square with more contrast with the same jacket. Thoughts?

    There's a bit too much of it showing for my taste, but it goes nicely with the jacket.

    Jajaja Maybe folded squared no one would realice, but c'mon, linen ones start by low.

    You can cut an opening in the lining of your jacket and pull your shirt up through your breast pocket. Saves you a piece of paper.

    I work with a guy who's sport coats all have a contrasting and patterned chest pocket lining, he just pulls the pocket inside out instead of wearing a square.

    No joke.

    Which is more essential: A white cotton or linen pocket square?

    Neither is more essential.

    You can/should have both. You need not break the bank for ps's.

    Yes, just make sure to crumple/ruffle it up for a more authentic look.

    They behave (fold) very similarly, so you only need one. Linen is the more traditional choice, and I sell plain white linen pocket squares for $20.

    New to me, no name, vintage square for me today. Only disappointment is that it is silk, not paper.

    You'll not be disappointed. Wang PS' are unbelievably priced. I have far more expensive squares that are far, FAR less impressive.
