    You know I'm not sure, I actually ordered a whole bunch of cheap PS's off ebay in various colours and just pop them in to see what works and then will get cotton ones as I decide what works
    I'm thinking none would be safe for sure, but maybe a slightly brighter shade of blue than the darkest on jacket or grey/charcoal, possibly a blue pastel.

    Shad0w4life, I disagree. I think the white pocket square looks fine. That being said, I would have liked the outfit better if Acoustic had elected to skip the pocket square entirely; it was not needed.

    @foodie I'm also finding the PS kind of distracting otherwise I love the jacket and sweater color combo.

    Count me among those who thinks the white square was a good choice. I mean, a white square is the safest choice there is and I like how it goes with the contrasting white collar and cuffs.

    @ foodie I dont think the PS looks bad with the white collar and I think its something noone in the "real world" would see and think your outfit is ruined. Ive never really expiremented with them, mostly because I still need to get used to wearing a blazer in general.

    Went to do some thrifting today but didn't find anything worth while. Just my usual ultra casual look like always

    Since everyone's weighing in on Foodie's PS, I feel compelled to, also. It's an interesting question to me because I don't have any boldly patterned blazers myself and thus have no experience wearing PS's with them.

    On the basis of this one photo--which is, admittedly, not all that much evidence--I'm inclined to think boldly patterned blazers don't really need PS's all that much. A solid (or subtly patterned) blazer is (or appears to the eye as) an undifferentiated mass of color across most of the torso. On that kind of blazer, a PS can be a welcome, subtle break from the color's strong monotony. I think this is why PS wearers sometimes come to feel as if a jacket is strangely empty w/o one.

    A blazer with a bold pattern (or, I suppose, color) doesn't have that problem. If anything, it's the opposite: there's too much going on and everything else in the outfit needs to be toned down accordingly. In Foodie's pic, the PS feels to me like an unwelcome interruption of the blazer's pattern rather than a pleasant surprise.

    Basically, my wokring theory is that what in a tame blazer is a nice little sliver of variety becomes a distraction, a feeling of too-much-ness, in a bolder blazer.

    A pretty casual day by me since I wasn't going further than the mailbox today. I do cheat sometimes when I'm wearing boots by wearing athletic socks underneath. They're much thicker than dress socks so they help the boots fit more snug.



    shirt - JCF $20-$25
    pants - JCF $30
    jacket - BRF $50
