This fold, called “Mountain Path” is a variation of the classic “One Corner Up” fold. It is perfect for solid as well as patterned pocket squares, and it can be worn with full tux as well as casual blazer. I prefer patterned pocket squares such as the 4-pattern pocket square shown above. Here is how to create this fold:
Mountain Path Fold Step-by-Step Instructions:
Start by laying your pocket square on a flat surface.
Fold one side over to create a triangle.
Fold it again at the center to create a smaller triangle.
Turn the pocket square so that the longest side is facing towards you.
Now fold the side with the open ends over.
Turn the pocket square over and fold in the other side so that the fold fits into your breast pocket.
Turn it over again. The fold is complete.
As a final step, tug the pocket squares into your breast pocket. That’s it!
