The Bishops Hat is the only fold that spreads the pocket square above, below, and to all sides of your breast pocket. Because of the size and the spread, it is quite a loud fold. It is suitable for any pocket square style, although I suggest a bright and loud pocket square to compliment the eccentric nature of this unusual fold. Here are the 11 steps to create this fold:
Bishop’s Hat Fold Step-by-Step:
Lay the pocket square down flat.
Fold it into a triangle.
Fold up the outer corners to meet the top of the triangle. This creates a square.
Now fold in a portion of the lower corner.
Fold down the tip of the inner triangle.
Turn the pocket square over.
Fold in one of the sides.
Fold in the other side and tug the corner in to keep the fold secure.
Turn the pocket square over again.
Fold down the outer tips.
At last, tug into your breast pocket and style to suit your liking.
