How to wear a patterned pocket square?

Buddy of mine has a few pictured / patterned pocket squares; something similar to https://www.rampleyandco.com/collections/pocket-squares/products/venice-the-basin-of-san-marco-on-ascension-day
Can he wear it using a presidential fold on the job (FO VP)? Or is the presidential fold limited to solid colors?

That's a wild silk for sure, but it does have actual edge stitching so you could probably get away with it. Full disclosure I usually wear pocket squares and at work Ill exclusively wear them Presidential/News Anchor style (assuming you mean roughly half an inch peeking out with the corner facing your shoulder). I generally avoid the flower or pouf style when I'm wearing a tie.
