I’ll keep this one short and sweet. Want to add some kick to that boring blazer of yours? Throw in a pocket square. Want to look like you’ve been doing this dress up thing for years? Throw in a pocket square. Want women to throw themselves at your feet only for you to wipe their tears of joy with a readily available handkerchief? Throw in a pocket square. Want to be a boss? Say it with me: THROW IN A POCKET SQUARE!!!
It’s one of the simplest accessories that men have been blessed with yet we forgot they existed until Don Draper and the boys squared them out on season 1 of Mad Men. It’s a cheap add-on that makes that Tom Ford suit you own look like a million bucks…instead of the $5200 you paid for it. You’ll see them in many colors and patterns. You’ll see them in various fabrics…mainly silk and cotton. You’ll see them stuffed in the pocket in ways that look uniformed, and some that look like you just took it out to blow your nose and threw it back in before anyone noticed the nose gold at the bottom of it.
