How To Fold A Pocket Square
Learning how to fold a pocket square takes a dapper look up a notch. It enhances an otherwise bland suit and make and enables a more put together appearance.

The one point pocket square is a commonly used pattern. It looks sophisticate and it is simple to fold.
What you need to fold a pocket square:
- Small handkerchief
- Iron (if needed)
- Flat surface
- Iron wrinkles out of handkerchief. Yes, this is more work but it will add to your appearance.
- Lay the pocket square on a flat surface with one corner facing you and one facing away. It looks like a diamond. The shiny side is facing down.
- Fold the pocket square in half until the bottom corner meets the top corner. Smooth any wrinkles as necessary.
- Fold the left side of the pocket square vertically. The left side stops half way across the bottom. Imagine a line from the top corner straight down to the bottom, like one side of an envelope.
- Take right corner and fold over the left side. The pocket square looks like a tiny open envelope now.
- Tuck the pocket square in the pocket of the tuxedo or suit jacket. Makes sure it is not too tall. The tops of the folded sides do not stick out of the pocket.
