You see all of these great charts on really cool ways to style your pocket square. When you gather up enough textured scarves to work with, sure play around. But the reality is ....... you know it is most likely that you won't. So just get the basic fabrics and prints covered in the line up and you are covered. The fun part of sporting a Pocket square is to just add a dab of design and personality to what you are wearing. Little lapel pins that have an interesting history, a super sexy textured silk pocket scarf that the ladies just have to touch. So, to the basics:
Straight Fold, stiffer fabric, like a crisp silk, a linen, lace, or cotton. Ironed into a nice fold.
The tip or the poof: I have found that if you gather up the tip or poof in your hand, wrap a rubber band around it, stuff it in your pocket, it helps it to keep it's shape and stays firm in your pocket.
