square that back pocket

Pocket squares don't necessarily need to be for fancy dress only. They can be fun and casual. In fact, i love the look of a pocket square in the back pocket of jeans. whether it's an actual pocket square or just a fresh handkerchief, i dig it. Not only does it look good, it also serves other purposes like cleaning the lenses on your glasses, and cushioning your butt when you sit, especially if you share that pocket with keys or a pockey knife. 

personally, I prefer the barely poking out approach for that little pop of style, but I suppose the placement and visibility is entirely up to you. Just remember you're not in a gang and it shouldn't be hanging down past your butt.

general knot & co.

made in the u.s.a. i think this is my favorite four-word phrase right now. there's just something about talents and skills being focused on perfecting a craft that you have to admire and respet. Although, higher craftsmanship comes at a higher price, the quality is unmatched. 

General knot co. was created by Andrew Payne, after directing design teams for companies like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi's. His goal was to bring quality manufacturing back to the United States, and he wasn't kidding.

 

The company produces some of the greatest ties, bow ties, pocket squares, and belts around, and they do it with classic style. Using a blend of modern and vintage fabrics to create unique designs, General Knot co. makes very limited quantities of remarkable quality.  

I suggest you take a closer look at General Knot & co. even if you're a bargain shopper like me. It's always a good idea to find new ways to improve your style, seek inspiration and support companies that focus on quality.

That being said, I'll leave you with some words from the man himself:

Cheat Sheet for ties and pocket squares.

I came across this guide to tie and pocket square styles based on specific events/occasions, put out by J.Crew. I think they did a pretty good job with it, adding images to help visualize the presentation rather than simply describing it. Although there will always be events that don't fall under one of these basic categories, this is still a great reference to help point you in the right direction for using ties and pocket squares in varying degrees of formality.

the tie bar.

Looking for a new skinny tie? Maybe a bowtie per chance? What about a pocket square? In need of a set of cufflinks? What's your sock game looking like? Have you ever even worn a tie bar? If these questions have caused you to question your adequacy, and you'd like to remedy your errors without breaking the bank, then you need to stop by The Tie Bar.

Don't just take my word for it though, you can see items from The Tie Bar on celebrities and in GQ. If that isn't credibility I don't know what is.

You can check out what The Tie Bar has to offer by clicking here.

pocket squared.

Pun definitely intended. Forgive me for referencing math, but adding a pocket square to a sharp suit or blazer can increase style points exponentially.

With the comeback of the Mad Men look in suits and menswear these days, it's important to remember the accessories that made these styles really pop. Onesuch accessory to a well-fitting suitcoat is the pocket square. 

Traditionally, pocket squares have been worn in mostly basic colors -- white, black, gray, etc... The great thing about bringing back a classic style, however, is being able to tweak it with modern flair. Do not, by any means, feel limited in the color selection of your pocket square. It is not required of you to match your shirt or tie color, or even stick to a certain range of colors anymore. I'm giving you permission to get creative, so go nuts!

Also remember, you don't want your entire kerchief hanging sloppily out of your jacket pocket. There are several different ways to fold your pocket square, so learn how to fold and display it correctly. Keep in mind: not all folding patterns are good looking, so choose wisely, my friends.

Just remember: keep it classy.
