A handkerchief is distinctive and stylish!

Wear them in breast pocket of shirt, jacket, or combine them with suit and tie. You get the best effect when the main color of your handkerchief is the same as your shirt or contrasting, but rather not the same fabric and colour as the tie. A silk handkerchief suits best with a luxury shirt.. 
The style of the handkerchief:
A happy handkerchief appropriates in a happy environment.
A calm handkerchief like with little cubes of herringbones suits in a business environment.

Handkerchief folds:  
This is the best method to fold a silk handkerchief. It gives a swell above the breast pocket with a small puff. Put the handkerchief open on the table. Place your thumb and finger right in the middle and lift it up. Put the thumb and finger of your other hand around the handkerchief like a ‘ring’ and move downwards until the middle of the handkerchief . Fold the handkerchief up and put handkerchief in your breast pocket of your shirt, coat or suit.
Reverse Puff:
This way to fold your handkerchief has the same concept as the puff, but place the handkerchief in the opposite way. Using this method always gives a very flamboyent appearance, the edges of the handkerchief are exposed above the breast pocket.
TV fold:
With his style the handkerchief is folded in such a way, that one stripe of horizontal side of the handkerchief is revealed about ½ inches above the breast pocket. This is a very popular style in the 1940s to 1950s because many TV celebrities wore their handkerchief this manner.
Put the outside of the handkerchief on the table, with the inner diagonal down. Put the bottom of the point almost on the top point of the handkerchief. Put the left points as far as possible to the right, and the right points to the left. Fold it up and put your handkerchief with the point upwards in your breast pocket. <
