I don't like it. The photos should be of the entirety of the square, to show the whole pattern and the stitching. The jacket pocket doesn't mean anything since you can't see what's buried within it.
Do you think it would work better as a secondary detail shot, instead?

what do you mean by detail shot? example?
While I agree that a close up of the whole square is a better way to show it off, an in-the-pocket shot isn't a bad idea. For example, I like what Mr. Porter has done:

I think that having both shots in a listing is ideal.

Sometimes, a patterned pocket square doesn't look that inspiring when it's photographed flat, but when it's shown stuffed into a pocket (ie the actual way you'll be wearing it), it looks much better and you can visualise how it will look when worn.

I'm not sure which shot (flat, or in-the-pocket) would be best as the introductory photo for the listing, but I definitely think that it's worth including both types of photo in listings.

Since Arnathor quit the forum there's no need for this thread to be open and public.

Because I got no sales from it, It would be $200 expense with zero profit.

Which one of you bought a pocket square from me, someone is from London here right?

It wasn't blue loafers unless he's using a pseudonym.
