Once you have made the important decision to bring your A-Game to an upcoming event, interview or date, the next step is to choose the fold of your liking. There is no hard rule here and we suggest a fold which matches the occasion in terms of the formality level. Also keep in mind that certain folds will bring out the patterns of colours of your square in a different manner.
Without further ado, we present to you nine different ways to fold your pocket squares. From the simplest, but classic & elegant ones to more complicated & sophisticated folds.
1. The Presidential Fold
A classic, clean fold, also known as the Flat Fold. Understated elegance for the most formal of events.
2. The One Point Fold
A quick fold combining simplicity with a slight touch of formality
3. The Two Point Fold
A twist to the One Point Fold by tilting the back layer slightly from the centre. A favourite amongst working professionals.
4. The Three Point Fold
Slightly flashier, this fold works for both business and casual occasions
5. The Four Point Fold
Ramping up the complexity level. An advanced fold best suited for stiffer fabric
6. The Scallop Fold
For those who want to be extraordinary, more suited for softer fabric and casual occasions
7. The Puff Fold
Representing the “chilling” gentleman. Definitely not formal, but more than chic and fairly easy
8. The Winged Puff Fold
Despite the similarity in name, the folding technique couldn’t be more different. Works best with fine silk pocket squares and is on the compact side
9. The Dunaway Fold
An impressive fold which requires a bit of practice to master. A cousin of the Puff Fold but requires inverting the shape in the last step. A talking point at any event!
Now that you have mastered all nine different ways to fold a pocket square, you will never look at this simple men’s accessory in the same light again!
