THE RETURN OF THE POCKET HANDKERCHIEF
The pocket square, a familiar accessory from the bygone days of menswear, is having a sartorial comeback. If chosen with care and worn with panache, it can give new life to a favourite suit and become the standout detail of your outfit.
Not to be mistaken for (though, sadly, it often is) the rather more practical kind of handkerchief that’s kept for blowing your nose, the pocket square offers a flash of colour and a dash of sophistication to any jacket.
Normally worn in the left breast pocket, it can be folded and displayed in various ways (triangular, three peaks, four corners…), depending on the size and the fabric of the square, and the depth of the pocket.
There are no rules about colour, pattern or texture — choose one to either contrast or complement your suit.
