Ever wondered why that guy in the office always looks better dressed than you? You both have your suits made by the same tailor so what's the difference? Take a closer look; he's sporting some accessories you are missing, chief of which is probably the pocket square. Fashion savvy gents will advise to always wear that folded piece of silk with your suit, and we’re here to tell you exactly why.

It’s the look defining accessory

While your tailored shirt and your choice of tie affect your overall look, the pocket square can make or break your outfit. Subtle shades or bold and brash hues, there’s no right or wrong as it all depends on the look you want to achieve. But one thing is certain, this little square of material has far more bearing on your style than you can imagine.

How you fold it says it all

Of course you can just stuff it in your breast pocket and hope it looks good; in some cases, it will. But if you take the social setting into consideration, there are folds to suit every occasion and even your mood.

There are endless ways to fold your pocket square, but these nine folds should get you through any occasion.

Presidential Fold

Very formal occasions/casual wear


One-Point Fold

At work or with your sports coat


Two-Point Fold

A corporate favourite


Three-Point Fold

Business wear with a sartorial edge


Cagney Fold



Puff Fold

Most stylish of the lot - can be worn on any occasion


Winged Puff Fold

Semi-formal/smart casual


Scallop Fold

Weddings/Social events


Dunaway Fold

Business or casual

It adds a personal touch to your look

Here at Montagio we love an individual lookand nothing adds that bit of personality to a look as well as a pocket square. Sure, you can do the same thing with a tie, but a pocket square is so much subtler than neckwear that is under your chin. A flourish of colour or a slight contrasting shade nestled in your breast pocket is a more stylish way to add a bit of flair to your look.

It draws the eye

While you might not want to seem like a strutting peacock, you want to be noticed. So rather than being noticed for your taste in novelty ties, why not attract your peers' attention with a pocket square. The best thing about this accessory is that people won’t realize why they have noticed you, and that’s how a subtle accessory works its magic.

While this is merely an accessory, we advise paying more for a good pocket square. You never know when someone might look closer, and the last thing you want is something that looks cheap. So if you’d like some further advice on this subtle accessory, then give us a callor drop into the showroom for a chat.
