How to fold a pocket square

Fold a square to perfection.

Adding a pocket square lifts a suit to new heights. Stylish since the 20s, and they've been the dapper gents' favourite ever since. 

Pocket squares don’t have to be worn with a top hat and tails. Even a casual blazer can be brightened by a pocket square. Use your pocket square to stand out from the crowd at smart casual functions. Pick the right colour and pattern, and you're good to go. 

Going formal? Avoid matching up your pocket square with your tie colour. Pick a hue that works for you and complements the rest of your suit. 

However you wear your square, keep it clean. A fresh square perfects the look, a dull one kinda ruins it.
