Pocket squares offer a quick, inexpensive way to add flair and color to your suit. For the best effect, learn these easy (and non-fussy) folding methods and you'll get even more mileage out of that small square of color.


Flat Fold

Lay your pocket square flat. Fold it in half from left to right, then fold it in half from bottom to top, leaving the bottom edge just short of the top. Tuck in your pocket with a slight angle that points to your shoulder.


The Puff

Lay your pocket square flat. Pick up the center and let the corners hang down. Flatten as many of the creases as possible so it will lay more smoothly in your pocket. Grasp it around the middle with the opposite hand and gently tuck into your pocket.


Single Point

Lay your square flat with one corner pointing up. Pull the bottom corner up to meet the top corner. Now fold the left corner over to the right until it is halfway between the left fold and the right corner. Bring the right corner to the left until it touches the left fold. Tuck into your pocket.


There are plenty of other fun folding techniques for your pocket squares, so choose a new one today for a quick, colorful pick-me-up for your suit.


We took a sneak peek at the reports from the Pitti Uomo trade show's spring lineup in Florence, Italy, and found a few trends that deserve a look.


Spring themes are nostalgic this year, with multiple references to turn-of-the-century (1900, not 2000) ideas of outdoor adventure, including classic items reminiscent of African safari-wear.


Fabric choices are mixing, with linens being paired with more casual fabrics for an air of comfortable elegance.


Seasonal colors to watch are those based on natural-but brilliant-hues this season, including lush, verdant greens and deep-water blues with fiery red accents.
