Pocket Squares – Still In style?

Are Men’s Pocket Squares Still In Style?

Question:

In the breast pocket of a man’s suit jacket, is it in style now to wear a colored or white hankie to social events?

Ruth:

In style now and has been in style since 1785. It’s not a handkerchief (that’s something men used to keep in their pants pockets to blow their noses on but was made obsolete and unhygienic by Kleenex in the 1960’s!) it a pocket square! And the only reason that there is a breast pocket on men’s suit and sports jackets and some overcoats is to wear a pocket square.

And gentlemen should wear a pocket square always (maybe not to a job interview).
