    I would wear a lighter, colored tie for the day time, and the darkest one above for night. Never wear a matching tie / pocket square set. Just use a white ps.

    I also really hate matching a tie and a pocket square. A pocket square (when its not plain white) is a way to express your personality, its a statement piece - so when you put absolutely no effort into purchasing it, buying a set.... It's just completely wrong!

    It depends on the dresscode and the season / time of day, I'd say. If it's this spring, I'd recommend the first option.

    Get a white cotton pocketsquare and fold it square, then tie a knot which compliments you and the shirt collar :)

    Definitely the first one.

    Usually when you go for something like off-white or pocket square in white (silk) it is to compliment the bride's dress.


    - Remember to wear what you truly feel is best for you. I just give advice based on what I'd personally do, or what I usually tell customers in my store (I work with suits)

    I like them both but prefer off-white for some reason.

    Thank you for the advice, that's why im posting here. Weddings are special occassions and rules should be followed

    Indeed. There is a time to be fashionable, and another time to be stylish. Style do have some rules when it comes to gentleman's wear!

    The off white would definitely add a refined touch to your outfit!

    I want to emphasize that cotton (or linen, wool, etc.) is absolutely the right way to go if the square's going to be folded. Only if the pocket square is to be stuffed into the pocket in a "puff" style (which is a perfectly valid choice in many situations, of course), is silk the correct choice.

    I sometimes see men wearing folded silk squares. Much of the time, the silk square - being thinner and less... grippy?... than a cotton square, will slip down into the pocket, or a fold will just sort of flop over, and basically it looks wrong.
