Pocket Square Essentials

Let’s start with a video. Mr Jean-Claude Colban, director of Charvet, makes some great points about how to wear your pocket square:

The key lessons here are:

  1. Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where you don’t wear a tie, but you do wear your jacket. Instead of being underdressed and look plain, what better situation there is to give personality to your outfit by wearing a pocket square?
  2. Start simple, choose solid colors.
  3. Choose a color within the family of what you’re wearing. Before you feel comfortable picking contrasting colors, choose colors that are close to what you’re wearing, but never the same.
  4. Don’t look stiff. Don’t try too hard to be exact with your outfit. The point is to look charming with a pocket square that shows personality. Once it’s in your pocket, it’s time to forget it and enjoy yourself!
