About this deal

We use the finest mulberry silk and the quality of the fabric can be seen in the texture and the level of detail and vibrancy of the finished product. When choosing what pocket square to wear with a suit, you could choose a conservative fold such as a flat fold and position it so that it is around a half to an inch is viewable above your pocket. Aftercare rules are equally as important as the styling or product choice when purchasing a new pocket square, we at Rampley are advocates in sustainability and want you to be able to have a lifetime guarantee of any garments purchased with us.

A good rule of thumb is to choose brighter vibrant colours in summer and more muted, earthy colours in winter, but it comes down to personal choice, you can't really go wrong! Always keep in mind the amount of your pocket square that you choose to display is a matter of personal preference and can vary depending on the occasion and your personal style. This is one of the simplest combinations, where any two colours on opposite sides of the colour wheel create a high contrast.Not only is this fold easy to achieve, but it works for most situations from the office through to a summer wedding, see more on this below. Whether you are a pocket square aficionado or just a dabbler in menswear trends, navigating the etiquette of this accessory can, admittedly, be a bit of a sartorial minefield so we've set out our complete guide on pocket squares. A variation that is also a classic combination with navy is pairing with burgundy/red/burnt orange as they are adjacent to yellow on the opposite side of the colour wheel, and also produce a high contrast that pairs beautifully with the dark blue navy hues.

We like to keep a plain white silk pocket square for formal occasions, but even then like to mix it up with a little bit of texture or subtle variation in colour such as our ivory pocket square below which can be viewed here: White and Ivory Paisley Pocket Square. The wool tends to make it wrinkle-resistant and therefore allows it to drape beautifully while looking great with all different kinds of folds. Firstly, a suit is a more formal option than a stand-alone jacket, therefore you will often be wearing it in a more formal environment. The handkerchief, however, is usually made from standard cotton and is meant for more practical uses such as wiping sweat or blowing your nose. However, for the vast majority of events that you will attend, a pocket square with a pop of colour is more than acceptable, and often the way that you can differentiate yourself for everyone else.

For the most interesting pocket square designs, they can be used for tailored jacket linings to create something truly unique, which we outlined in our blog post here on jacket linings. Imagine one of your grandchildren wearing one of your squares at their graduation that you’d purchased 50 years earlier.

Perhaps the opposite of this heading is what we’re commonly asked, which is, is there ever a time you shouldn’t wear a pocket square with your suit or blazer? Black tie pocket squares as a rule always need to be crisp, elegant and always complementary in colour to your tuxedo. As an aside, colour theory is derived from the colour wheel that was devised by Sir Issac Newton in 1666, showing the relationships between colours.However, the main issue is that often your sartorial endeavours are not even visible until others are within touching distance. Alternatively a square that is predominately white with either a coloured edging or light pattern provides a relatively conservative look that will work in all business environments. We are often asked, what colour pocket square with a navy suit works best as the navy suit is such a classic suit choice. However if you don’t get it quite right, they can end up competing with each other and it may all look a bit overwhelming, or worse, that you’re trying a little too hard. White squares work with every jacket and are a simple tie and pocket square combination creator, so you can never really get it wrong.

Ultimately, the most important thing is to wear the pocket square in a way that makes you feel comfortable and confident.All the folds above work well with silk pocket squares, providing the square is at least 40cm in size so there is enough weight to hold the fold in place. Whereas you could choose colours that are in high contrast with your jacket and use a more flamboyant fold that really catches the eye. For silk, linen and wool blend fabrics we suggest to always use dry clean or cold hand wash only to protect those delicate fibres. The reason this works so well in formal environments, is you still have the traditional white base, but having the variation will give your outfit that little bit more interest than a flat white colour.
