How to Stick Out Your Chest

October 25, 2010

Give your jacket a shot of attitude, with a bolder fold and a well-paired square.

Now that you’ve channeled your inner Don Draper by mastering the art of the perfectly folded white pocket square, it’s time to turn things around—literally. Try the unstudied approach by flipping over the handkerchief, allowing the seamed edges to fan out casually. The layering looks especially good when the edges contrast in color; it adds informality to a CEO pinstripe and dresses up a gutsy tweed. We like a cotton square—it holds its shape and doesn’t sink into the pocket like a square made of silk. And if you go for a vibrant check or plaid, you’ll achieve a nonchalant yet elegant look that even Don Draper might approve of.
