Many Moods, Many Faces: The Pocket Square

Often when meandering through a social event one notices a perfectly delightful pocket square stuffed in the most ugly fashion into the pocket of a very sharp jacket. At The Bowford Company we believe that an accessory, be it ever so simple, must be worn in the correct manner in order for it to truly look good. So here we bring to you, four easy ways to wear your pocket square.

One-Point Fold

  • Lay the pocket square flat like a diamond and bring the bottom to the top so that you are left with a triangle
  • Now bring the left corner towards the right corner and the right corner towards the left
  • Fold the bottom towards the top to fit pocket

Two-Point Fold

  • Lay the pocket square flat like a diamond and bring bottom slightly to the side of the top so that two points are made
  • Bring the left corner towards the right corner and the right corner towards the left
  • Fold the bottom towards the top to fit pocket

Flat Fold

  • Lay the pocket square on a flat surface and bring the left side to the right side
  • Bring the bottom half towards the top but not all the way
  • Fold the fabric horizontally so as to fit the suit pocket

Puff Fold

  • Lay the pocket square flat and pinch it from the center so that natural gathers are formed
  • Hold the center of the pocket square
  • Now bring the bottom half towards the top half and fit it into your pocket.
