The Two Point Fold
Pocket Square Folds / View All Folds
The Two Point Fold also known as the Two Peaks Fold, is another fold that could be described as a classic fold. Still relatively conservative, it works well for more formal events or in the corporate world.
If you use this fold with a single coloured pocket square it will add a little more interest to your jacket, however for something a bit more interesting, a pocket square with multicolours it will have a nice contrast with different tones between the two peaks.
Start by laying out your pocket square in a diamond shape. Then fold it in half, but rather than laying the bottom corner of the square directly over the top point, lay it just off to the site so it creates two points.
Take the left-hand corner and fold it towards the right hand-corner.
Then take the right-hand corner and fold it over towards the left-hand corner.
Then fold the excess fabric back over onto the square. This should now be approximately the same width as your breast pocket.
Then fold it up so it has the right dimensions to fit snuggly in your pocket.
Pick it up holding everything in place firmly.
Finally, place in your pocket. You can then adjust it up or down depending on how much of the peaks you'd like to display.
