How To Fold A Pocket Square

Mr Michael Hill of Drake's, one of London's leading tie makers, shows us how to fold a pocket square.

The pocket square is to a well-dressed man what Mr Eric Clapton's guitar solo is to "Layla" - a soulful flourish that not everyone can pull off. Adding another element to an outfit brings into play questions about the colour, fabric and style that must be answered if you want to get it right. In this film, the latest episode in MR PORTER's How To series, Mr Michael Hill, managing director of London tie maker Drake's and a man of unerring good taste, demonstrates four ways to fold a pocket square. He also offers some advice about how to pick a square to complement the rest of your outfit, and reveals the secrets behind the perfect pocket puff.
