    Will be attending a wedding this weekend and needing some help on what pocket square to wear with this suit/shirt combo:

    -J Crew Ludlow Linen Suit (Navy)
    -Purple Gingham Dress shirt
    -Cognac colored loafers

    I would prefer a solid color square over a patterened, but I'm interested in hearing your suggestions. Thanks!

    Wedding is fairly informal, as far as weddings go.

    white linen or grey cotton, tv fold would be my recommendation.

    A solid blue tie would be the most easy option. You could also wear one with a slight pattern.

    No tie, going a little more casual with just a shirt and pocket square.

    Please don't wear a purple gingham shirt with a suit. This is one of the most obnoxious GQ trends.

    I actually quite like it when done well.

    i wear it with a navy suit, grey cotton tie, and a white linen square.

    Even though you say it is an informal wedding, wear a plain tie - if you really wanted to keep it casual, a navy plain knit. As for the pocket square (assuming you wear a tie) plain white cotton in tv-fold.

    Unless it's a micro-gingham, I think it always looks distracting to the eye.

    No need for a tie. White linen square would look best.
