The Reverse Puff Fold

Pocket Square Folds / View All Folds

The Reverse Puff is a flamboyant fold that is quite straightforward to master.

It works best where there are contrasting colours in the border design. As this is a fold for a more casual environment, we recommend that you have the peaks a good height above the pocket.

Start by laying out the pocket square flat in front of you, then pinch the centre with your thumb and index figure and lift it up.
