It might not seem like a complicated endeavor, but if you’ve never done it before, folding a pocket square can be quite an ordeal. If done incorrectly, your pocket puffs out and makes you look like a buffoon, but if you nail it, a well-folded pocket square can put the finishing touch on your suit and round out your entire ensemble. In the following steps we’ll give you a quick, easy to follow guide on how fold a pocket square correctly, along with some drawings to make it easier to do yourself.

As with skinning a cat, there is more than one way to fold a pocket square, but no matter what style you go with, there are a few rules you must adhere to:

  • Your square shouldn’t match your tie in either pattern or fabric choice, but can be similar in color. If you’re unsure, white linen is never wrong
  • Pocket squares are meant to be worn with nonchalance. They don’t have to be perfect, so try not to obsess over how they look
  • This isn’t a handkerchief, so for the love of god, please don’t blow your nose with it
