Probably the simplest and most common way to wear your pocket square is with the 1-tip up fold. Because it is such a classic fold, it is also part of my how-to fold a pocket square guide that features the 5 most basic folds. It is great for solid and patterned pocket squares. It is also well suited for any fabric, although it is easier to create the “point” with stiffer fabrics such as linen or cotton. Here is how you create this fold:
1-Tip Up Pocket Square Fold Step-by-Step:
Lay the pocket square down flat.
Fold one corner to create a triangle.
Fold in one of the sides.
Now do the same with the other side. This is what the “1-tip up fold” looks like when not tugged into your breast pocket.
Last, place the pocket square into your breast pocket. Give it a final styling to suit your liking.
