Day 23: The Shell Fold

The Shell Fold for Pocket Squares
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.
