Fashion trends come and go. Things that were in fashion a couple of years ago are now considered tacky. Likewise, fashion trends from decades earlier are now again seen on the covers of fashion magazines. Handkerchiefs are no exception. Under the motto "put a handkerchief in your suit" we claim the right of this accessory to live where it deserves, in the suit pocket of every man.
The best way to choose the right handkerchief for your outfit is to choose your outfit first, and then choose your handkerchief to match.
With the right handkerchief, you can:
Add colour to your suit
Compliment your tie
Express your personality
Give people the message that you are stylish and sophisticated
A good way to choose the right color and style for your handkerchief is to base it on your tie. You can make it the same color as your tie, or go for a contrasting colour depending on the look you are after. (Just makes sure it doesn't clash)
Now that you have chosen the right handkerchief, the last remaining issue is how to fold it.
The general rule is that your pocket square should go in the front pocket of your jacket, protruding about two or three centimetres. It can be carried straight or flat, just try to fold the handkerchief until you get the ideal size to put it in your pocket.
Another way to fold your handkerchief is to fold it into a triangle, and then fold it again to form a smaller triangle. Simple!
You don't have to fold your handkerchief to look sophisticated. Another option is to look for the centre of the handkerchief and hold it to try to give it a flower shape. Then place it in your pocket while keeping that shape.
