Puff or TV fold are preferred, but one point or even two point is acceptable, too. This is not a written rule, but everything else would be just too complicated.
Best regards, Dr
I tend to do the same, though of late I'm quite drawn to the two point fold for nearly all my suits and for black tie. The difficulty with this is when part of the pocket is covered up by the lapel (in the case of some of my wider lapeled suits).Chasseur said:I tend to save the square TV fold for 1950s and 60s style suits, it works with the minimalist lines.
Now you're just making stuff up.....:eusa_doh:Black tie worn with pleated, turndown-collared shirt and cummerbund, or warm weather black tie, or double breasted dinner jacket is informal. You can wear any pocket square you want, but white is preferred.
Black tie worn with full-dress shirt and waistcoat is semi-formal. I recommend linen pocket square, TV fold.
I wish I could find the old (British) literature I read a few months ago that was incredibly anti-TV fold, saying it was a lazy Americanism and that no self-respecting Brit would ever use it.
Some of those old books are pretty funny.
Oh, I wasn't anti-TV fold, I use it myself. It's just the amount of old rules (both British and American) that existed that we don't know of.
Most of them were 20s-30s of course, way before Bond.
