Folding a pocket square correctly

In a manner similar to tie knots, the way in which you fold a pocket square is also an important style element which can influence your outfit. At the same time, the folding technique should not only correspond to the occasion, it should also reflect your individual character. There are five main folding techniques which have stood the test of time:

Einstecktücher passend kombinieren

Nowadays, there’s no one single occasion for wearing pocket squares, nor one correct way in which to match them to your outfit. What’s important is that the pochette reflects the individual character of a person and is a fitting addition to the overall look. For this reason, the material, pattern and colour play a key role when selecting a pocket square.

Those who want to play it safe should go with the classic: a white linen or cotton pochette paired with a white shirt. A pocket square made from fine, delicately shimmering silk is the right choice for festive events. However, when it comes to colourful pocket squares, make sure that the pochette picks up on the background colour of the tie or that of the shirt.

Patterns not only add a touch of style, they also add a little variety. Timeless designs such as stripes, checks, paisley or spots can be combined in a variety of ways. At the same time, they also symbolise a touch of elegance. Whatever you do, never match the pattern on your tie with that of your handkerchief. It is much more effective to decide on a background colour which is reflected across various patterns.
