SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] Hi I'm Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, Editor at Large for Southern Living. Pocket squares are one of the must have finishing accents of a gentleman's wardrobe. Here are classic folds to get you started. For the flat fold, lay the pocket square seam side down. Fold it in half. Fold it in half, from right to left. Fold it in half again. Fold the bottom, and tuck into the jacket pocket. [MUSIC] For the two-point fold, fold the pocket squares in half slightly askew. Fold the two sides and bottom under. And tuck into the jacket pocket. [MUSIC] For the four point fold, lay the pocket square seams up. Fold it in half slightly askew. Fold it in half again from right to left, fanning the corners. Fold the two sides and bottom under. Tuck into the jacket pocket. Adjust the points loosely, so that the tallest points are closest to the shoulder. For the puff fold, start with the pocket square, seam side down. Pick it up from the center, and slide through your fingers. Fold the edges under, and tuck into the jacket pocket. [MUSIC] For more stylish ideas, pick up a copy of Southern Living magazine.
