With the recent wonderful upsurge in Gentlemen?s attire, classic accessories such as Pocket Squares are making a comeback. No more is the breast pocket of a man?s suit a place to hang a pair of sunnies or stuff some business cards.
We?re delighted! We at Manly Stuff always try to look our best, and are happiest when making you, our readers, look your best.
The following is a quick guide to three of the most popular pocket square folds you really don?t need any more.
Pocket Square Guidelines
Dont leave your suit bare! A suit without a pocket square?isnt a suit at all. Its a shell. An empty, sad, lonely shell.
You dont want that do you? No, we didnt think so. Read on my man.
The addition of pocket square adds some panache to a good suit, you need to be careful mind, its easy to mess up.
Colour co-ordinating your pocket square
A pocket square can be patterned or solid. If you?re wearing a crisp white shirt, a crisp white pocket square will do the job 99% of the time, especially in a business environment.
A white pocket square can go with any colour tie.
The general guideline is that the pocket square colour should complement some colour on your tie. If your tie has some red, a rock solid red pocket square will look great.
Try to avoid matching colours or patterns exactly; it?ll look like you?re trying too hard. We don?t want that.
