This post is inspired by my new boss who has shaken things up a bit at work with his irreverent sense of style. The dude rocks bowties on a regular basis and can be seen almost as regularly wearing a suit and dress shirt with a singular pop of fun coming out of his breast pocket. The pocket square is something that is often overlooked and usually a bit intimidating for your average 8 to 5 warrior. The thing is, this little square of quirkiness is anything but “out of line” and certainly could never be considered informal.
Men have been wearing this dash of color since the early days of formal wear and their purpose has been both sartorial and practical in it’s evolution. These days – I suggest rocking a silk square of a bright and contrasting color tucked effortlessly into your pocket as though you did it in a hurry. Consider this a laid back alternative to popular madmen squared top pocket square and something that you’ll likely be wearing in the office for a year before the next guy gets the balls to do the same. Go ahead, take the lead and stand out as a guy with style and confidence. Some cool options below.
