Ways to Wear a Pocket Square

The beauty of pocket squares lies in their versatility, not only in design but also in the way you fold and wear them. There are a multitude of ways you can fold a silk handkerchief, including some wild and elaborate styles, such as the Birds of Paradise Fold, the Tidal Wave Fold and the Spiral Staircase Fold. Here are a few popular folding styles to consider: 

Puff Fold

This is a classic and effortless fold. Simply grasp the center of the pocket square and let the edges fall naturally, forming a puff. Adjust it to the desired height and tuck it into your jacket pocket, leaving a bit of the silk visible.

Three Point Fold

For a more formal look, try the three-point fold. Lay the pocket square flat, fold it in half to form a rectangle, and then fold the two corners towards the center, creating three points. Tuck it into your pocket, showing the points.

Presidential Fold

This fold is sleek and sophisticated. Fold the pocket square in half to form a rectangle, then fold it in half again. Finally, fold one side inward so that it fits snugly into your pocket, with only a small edge showing.

Winged Puff Fold

Japanese Silk Pocket Square How to Fold a HandkerchiefCravat Club's Sprezzatura Fold 

While there are endless ways you can fold your pocket square, our favourite is the Sprezzatura method of not giving it too much thought, and aiming for a rough puff fold. Our tip is to drape the pocket square over you flat palm, slowly pick it up from the centre with your other hand, twisting the top part, then nonchalantly stuff it into your pocket, adjusting to your taste. If the hand-rolled edges of our handkerchiefs happen to peek out, it's an added bonus in our opinion.

Stylist's note: A hand-rolled silk pocket square is considered far superior in quality to the more common and less labour-intensive machine-hemmed squares. They drape and fold better, as hand-sewn stitches are much more fluid than rigid machine stitches - therefore you are encourage to actually show the edges when wearing your square. You also won't be surprised to hear that all of our pocket squares at Cravat Club are masterfully hand-rolled here in England.
