How to put a handkerchief in a suit pocket?

Whether it is to update a suit or to make it even more formal, many men tend to wear a handkerchief in suit pocket.

This scarf does not fit in any way.

To make it elegant and neat, you have to do it in one of these two ways:

The flight spread in handkerchief:

  1. Grab a bright-colored bandana (complementary colors to the fabric of the suit usually work well).
  2. Take it by the center and press it and then turn it. This "knot" will give volume to the handkerchief so that later you can insert that part of the handkerchief in the pocket of your suit.
  3. You can arrange it in several layers as in the photograph. Remember that about 4 tips will be enough. Do not exaggerate.

The classic white line:

Making this scarf with a straight shape is very simple.

  1. You just have to take a white handkerchief (it is the only color that works well) and fold it in four or, depending on the size of the handkerchief, fold it in more parts.
  2. Tuck it into your jacket pocket and make one side stick out.

    Thanks. But the scarf, depending on the suit, also admits the color black. What's more, white on white (for summer for example) and black on black or navy blue and even earth colors are great. The complement has sometimes to be blurred in the first impression of the jacket set. What's more, in other types of garments that allow it, too (have your pocket ready). Thanks.

    We have to bear in mind that in our country the pocket square is not very common, but we have to dare, this can give you an extremely elegant touch if we know how to combine it, it can be put in the color of the shirt or the color of the tie according to your taste, or in combined colors, there are also several ways to put it on. dare and it will be very effective
