Hip to be Square - How to Wear a Pocket Square


cravat-club-silk-pocket-square

One of the most persistent questions we get is “How do I wear a pocket square”. Well, dear reader, we hate to break it to you, but there is more than one way to wear a pocket square. 

You know the routine. Big occasion, big outfit - reach into the wardrobe for something nice you would not normally wear. And while some of us are lucky to be born clothes horses, not all of us feel at home in smarter, more formal wear. So how to pull it off?

Our answer to this might be counter-intuitive. You might think of pocket squares as a rarified garment, as something to break out only for the most demanding occasions. A wedding perhaps, or a day at the races. You might have visions of starched collars, of sweating for a photographer under the midday sun. Well, in truth, the trick is - don’t try too hard! Absolutely feel free to accessorise at will, but do it with a laissez-faire sort of attitude, an ease.

When it comes to our pocket squares, you could try a simple puff fold, or even go for the Italian style - letting the whole thing hang out. While you can go as formal as you please, it is by no means obligatory. Our garments are expressly designed to make you look good, not to catch you out or to try and truss you up into something you don’t want to be.
