How to: Three Tip Fold Pocket Square

The Pocket Square Aficionado’s Fold

This type of fold that is sometimes also called “three tips up” or “crown fold” is perfect for patterned and colored pocket squares. Although this fold would suit formal attire, I like it most with when paired with blazer jacket or sports coat.


  1. Lay your pocket square on a flat surface.

  2. Fold one side in so that you have the look of two triangles – creating two tips.

  3. To create the third tip, fold in one side as shown in picture #3 above.

  4. This step creates the base which will keep the pocket square in place. Fold in the opposite side and make sure to create a strong fold with the palm of your hand.

  5. Place the folded pocket square into your pocket and you are done.
