How To Fold A Pocket Square: The Playboy’s Ultimate Guide

Fotor0121151749

A pocket square is an essential accessory when wearing a suit. Do NOT wear a suit without a pocket square. I cannot stress this enough. A pocket square can make or break your outfit and is the difference between a playboy in development and guy who clearly doesn’t listen to the ole G cats like myself. The best part of it is, is that pocket squares are not expensive and spice up your wardrobe times a 1,000.

A well folded pocket square and the color contrast of it, can lead to girls opening you. I kid you not. Many a night when out on in the town in Vegas or LA, or hell even Miami or NYC, I’ve had fly girls approach me and compliment my pocket squares. They also like to keep them as a souvenir, so when you leave in the morning make sure you still have it with you. I’ve had many a pocket square ‘stolen’ by a fly chick the morning after having glorious sex.

Below you’ll find the Ultimate Guide To Folding A  Pocket Square with Step-by-Step Pictures and Instructions and I will have a future post on choosing the right colors for your pocket squares so you look more like Sean Connery and less like your local Sears salesman.

*NOTE: There are countless ways to fold your pocket square, but I’ve included the best and main ones that a playboy will utilize.
