Who doesn’t love figuring out whether a popular myth is fact or fiction? We’re always amazed when a long-held belief turns out to be false. How could it be!?

Here’s another myth that Attire Club debunks:

Myth #4: Your tie should not match your pocket square

Answer: Fact
If you are wearing a tie and wish to add a pocket square as well, the rule is that the pocket square should not match your tie in fabric and shape. Therefore, if you are wearing a red cotton tie, you can match it for example with a dotted green silk pocket square. The reasoning behind the rule is that a pocket square should compliment your tie. There is no point in adding two accessories of the same type twice.

However, there are people who break this rule and look great doing it. Style expert Tim Gunn often wears matching ties and pocket squares, which gives him an old-timey vibe. Back in the day, your tie needed to match your pocket square, so wearing matching pieces is always going to be a reference to the past.
