The “Shell Fold” is a neat and unique way to style your pocket squares. It looks fantastic with wild patterned, and brightly colored pocket squares, and it also is best suited for oversized pocket squares (larger than 13″ x 13″) that are made from fine silk. It is actually similar in look, yet quite a bit more elaborate, to the Puff Fold. Here is how you create the shell pocket square fold:
The Shell Pocket Square Fold Step-by-Step:
Lay the pocket square down flat.
Fold in half to create a triangle.
Fold one corner up so that it sits next to the other corner.
Fold the bottom corner up again to create a 3rd tip.
Fold for a fourth time to create a 4th tip.
Now bend the pocket square from the four tips.
Bend all the way to create a half circle.
As a final step, tug the pocket square into your breast pocket and give it some final styling to your liking.
