How To Fold A Two Point Pocket Square
Enhance your look. The two point fold is a business and formal wear appropriate pocket square fold. Despite being suited for dressier occasions, creating it is pretty simple. It’s folded in the same manner as the one point fold, just slightly off-center to create two points.
Add it to your jacket! Here are the 8 straightforward steps to the two point fold. FYI, we're using a 12- by 12-inch pocket square as an example.
Lay the pocket square unfolded and flat.
Fold the pocket square in half lengthwise. (Skip this step for smaller sized pocket squares, if preferred.)
Fold the pocket square in half again so that you have a small square. (Skip this step for smaller sized pocket squares, if preferred.)
Note: This and the following images have been enlarged to show the folds up close and are not the same scale as the first two photos.
Rotate the pocket square about 30 degrees so it is almost a diamond shape.
Fold the bottom right tip up towards the top left tip, but keep it slightly off center.
Fold the right tip of the triangle to the center of the triangle.
Fold the left tip of the triangle to the center of the triangle.
Select which side of the folded pocket square you want to show. For a cleaner look, we prefer to turn the pocket square around to show the folded edges versus the finished edges.
Now that you've folded a two point pocket square, simply slide it into your jacket pocket. Only the tips of the fold should be seen peeking out.
By the way, suit jackets vary. Your pocket may be narrow, shallow or deep, which changes how your pocket square sits. Adjust to your pocket by tucking the folded pocket square in a bit more or less.
Once you have the one point and two point folds under your belt, it’s time to introduce (drum roll...) the three point fold. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think, especially with our illustrated steps.
