Many may consider it to be too excessive or are too shy and therefore do not want to attract further attention to themselves. Whereas, in fact the pocket square can help demonstrate confidence and personal style. Choosing a specific colour that best matches your suit and tie. Showing others that you take appreciation in the way you look. First impressions matter and that is why every little detail can make the difference.
Many will also presume the circumstances will only be within a formal environment, of which they are not likely to experience and when they do the common option is to borrow one. In this scenario, this not only shows lack of preparation and unwillingness to keep up with trends and styles. Whilst increasing the chances of wearing something that simply does not match.
So let’s view the simple events and occasions where a pocket square can be worn. Firstly, any formal event whether this is a business meeting to a social gathering a pocket square should be considered essential. As much as the jacket and trousers.
Even, when dressing down with a t-shirt under the suit a pocket handkerchief still works, whether you are wearing a tie is not really important. Its important to make things match especially the style and colours. This also includes whether you are wearing a jacket with t-shirt and jeans. The pocket square still has a place.
