Folding a pocket square

Small detail, big impact: the pocket square, also known as a pochette, adds a stylish and elegant touch to any outfit and is a traditional male accessory which has remained in style for hundreds of years. At the same time, it’s not an accessory which is only to be brought out at celebrations and formal events; it also adds a finishing touch to any smart business look. No matter whether it’s made from silk or linen, whether it’s plain or striped, it’s not only the material, colour and pattern of your pocket square that are crucial when it comes to creating the perfectly put-together overall look – the correct folding technique also plays a key role.

Tying a tie

Whether it’s a Windsor knot, a Pratt knot, a Christensen knot or an Onassis knot – there are countless ways to tie a tie. The perfect look demands that shirt, tie and knot fit together in perfect harmony, creating a consistent overall image. Knowing the right knot to choose depends on a range of criteria. For example, not all types of knots are suitable for all types of shirt collar. The material of the tie also plays an important role. Some tying techniques are better for thicker materials, some for thinner materials. But how do you know when to use which knot and how to tie it?
