Four Mountains Fold

Pocket Square Folds / View All Folds

The Four Mountains Fold is definitely more flamboyant than formal, and a great way to express some individuality. The Four Mountains Fold has the same asymmetry seen in the puff fold yet retains a definite shape ideal for those less enthused about the uninhibited nature of the puff and its eccentric relatives.

There’s a little more flexibility to get creative as the four points shouldn’t line up perfectly, and you could try contrasting the texture of your pocket square against your tie for a daring combination.

Finally, place in your pocket and adjust it accordingly. As mentioned, this is generally quite a flamboyant fold, so ensure that you show a generous amount of the peaks. We like to wear this fold with the two central peaks higher than the two either side as shown in the image.
