Gentleman, it’s time to level up your pocket square game.
You might have a special event coming up or you just want to rock a new look.
So I’ve got the perfect pocket square fold to get you compliments.
Today – we are going to learn how to do the Winged Puff fold.
(Despite the name, it doesn’t actually bear much resemblance to the Puff fold)
This is a hybrid style that blends the soft edges of a puff fold with the angles of a single-point fold.
Overall, it has a very unique look that will grab attention without being over-the-top.
You may be glad to know that this style of fold is highly compact, making it a good option for undersized pocket squares.
The main characteristics of the Winged Puff fold:
- It’s a bit flashy in appearance, making it a good choice for social events and celebrations.
- It looks best with sports jackets, blazers, or casual suits.
- The fold will work great with either solid or patterned pocket squares.
How To Fold A Pocket Square – The Winged Puff fold
To get started with the Winged Puff fold, lay the pocket square on a flat surface; flip it so the inside is facing up.
Fold the square in half, taking the top corner and bringing it down to the bottom corner. Now take the right corner and fold it down to the bottom corner, then do the same with the left corner.
Flip the square over, then fold in the sides and bottom. How much you fold on this step is determined by the size of your jacket pocket and the size of the pocket square.
Now place the square in your jacket pocket; you may need to make some small adjustments until you are happy with the look. You can adjust it so the slit in the middle is as wide or narrow as you like.
For the best look, I recommend having 2-2.5 inches of this square peeking out of the pocket. Too much more or less than that – and it won't end up being a good look.
All jacket pockets are a little different in width, so make sure the fold doesn’t end up too wide or narrow for your pocket. Readjust the width if it isn’t fitting properly in your jacket.
There you go, gentlemen. If you want to grab attention and get flooded with compliments, look no further than the Winged Puff for your next wedding or social event.
