Description

Handkerchief, pochette, fazelleto, panuelo, mouchoir de poche, tenugui, hankachi or hank. They all mean one thing. A small innocent square of fabric. Place one in a jacket pocket however, and it transforms into a pocket square. A gentleman’s boldest accessory, it adds the final flourish and character to any wardrobe and is a stylish alternative to the tie when a gentleman needs to look sharp. When, where and how should a gentleman wear the perfect pocket square? The guide features 22 pocket square folds, for linen, cotton and silk, from the simple and elegant `Presidential’ to the complex and flamboyant `Bouquet’ fold. As well as brief written descriptions and advice on when to wear each style, each fold is also accompanied by easy-to-follow diagrams and bold colour illustrations of how to wear one’s pocket square with style. Names synonymous with elegant and distinctive style from every decade – Cary Grant, Oscar Wilde, the Duke of Windsor, Fred Astaire, JFK and Yves Saint Laurent – provide style inspiration. The Pocket Square is the essential gift for the fashion-conscious gentleman wishing to experiment with the endless possibilties of this precious piece of fabric and turn it into the ultimate signature of their style.
