4 Steps to Folding a Pocket Square

Two Thumbs Up to Two Points Up

(An illustration of folding a “two corners up” pocket square).

There are a variety of ways to fold a pocket square. In this example, I outline folding a pocket squares with two corners up. This look goes well for a sharp business and business casual look, with a suit jacket, blazer, or sports coat.

1. Make sure the pocket square is nice and flat (preferably on a flat surface).

2. Fold one of the corners as to create the appearance of two “overlapping” triangles.

3. Fold in the right side of the pocket square. Repeat this with the left side.

4. Grasp the pocket square, maintaining the shape (make sure the ends are pinched) and place it in your suit jacket, sports coat, or blazer’s breast pocket.

Need a new set of pocket squares, ties, or accessories to complete your elegant look?
