How to: Three Easy Pocket Square Folds

video How to: Three Easy Pocket Square Folds
Don Draper and the "Mad Men" set may have re-popularized the pocket square, but if you're just blindly stuffing, you're missing the point (or the very chic two-point). Let The Daily show you three folds that look snazzy with any suit.

I've always referred to these as 'handkerchiefs'... I had an entirely different idea as to what this 'ible was about when clicking the link.

As to the folds, they are simple and easy... which I think is what you were going for. I prefer some of the more advanced techniques that look a bit more sophisticated, such as a winged puff or dunway...I was educated on these, as well as several tie and bow-tie knots, at a very young age by my father; who felt that being well dressed necessarily includes an amount of sophistication. I enjoy seeing some of these traditions being upheld or returning to popularity... though I have always maintained such style as my preferred formal wear.

I totally agree! I personally love the style and am excited that it is coming back. I thought with this video I would start easy, its hard to take a big bite when you are trying something for the first time. Thanks for commenting and checking out my video! :) Glad you are rocking the pocket square with pride!
