Now we're going to move into the fancier pocket square folds. It can take a couple of tries to make more than one or two points line up neatly and keep roughly the same size and angle so don’t get frustrated if you do not get it right the first time.
The complex design makes the three-point fold a good one when you want to be a touch showy. It's certainly still business-appropriate, but definitely make sure the square is very neat and crisp.
The rest of your look should be pretty dapper too to really give this fold some oomph.
Three-Point Fold: Step 1
Start with the square fully unfolded and flat.
Three-Point Fold: Step 2
Fold the square diagonally down the middle, bringing one corner across to meet the opposite corner.
Angle the fold very slightly off-center, so that one corner lies just to the left of the other. The two offset corners will be two of the three visible points of the fold, so adjust them to your desired gap.
Three-Point Fold: Step 3
Bring the bottom left corner diagonally up at an angle so that it joins the two points that are on top of the fold. Position the fabric in a way that you have three points side by side, as evenly spaced and similar in size as possible.
Three-Point Fold: Step 4
Fold the bottom right corner inward, flat across the bottom, as far as needed to make the complete fold roughly the width of your jacket's breast pocket.
The finished fold will not be symmetrical. You should have a flat bottom, angled sides, and thee triangular points at the top. Tuck the bottom edge down into the jacket's breast pocket. Leave the three points visible, with the rest of the square hidden.
