Would any of these vintage handkerchiefs be appropriate as pocket squares? Most are cotton, some are linen. The squares I wear currently are mostly silk.

Worn whimsically, yes. But let me add a word of caution. Back in those pre-Kleenex days, handkerchiefs were used for the actual purpose of blowing one's nose. If you choose to do this (unless the handkerchiefs are deadstock), you'll probably be sporting someone's used snotrag.

Finding deadstock with stickers still attached is not difficult.

There's probably a SF member who harbors such a fetish, so let's keep this thread topped.
