    Is there a general rule for wearing pocket squares with a vest when not wearing a suit/blazer? I usually wear a PS with suits/blazers w or w/o a tie, but was wondering if a PS w/o the jacket is something other people do as well or if I'm on my own with this one. I am referring to business attire situations where I would be wearing dress pants and shoes.

    Vest without jacket = valet or waiter, don't do this. Unless it's a leather vest (and you and your partner are into that sort of thing). But then no PS.

    But only with partner, and "if you are in that sort of thing".

    What a load of BS

    OP, dont, dont put a pocket square in a vest. That would look weird.

    What for? There is no need. Wearing your pocket square in your jacket chest pocket would be the right thing.

    In all seriousness, I believe only magicians and clowns employ this practice.
