The handkerchief - The accessory for varied attire

The handkerchief is an excellent accessory that provides great opportunities to vary an outfit by just changing the handkerchief. Pocket squares can be worn with a suit, tuxedo or a jacket. The handkerchief is thus well suited for both formal and informal events. For those who want to be handsomely dressed but still look casually dressed, the handkerchief is an excellent alternative. You should not use a handkerchief for practical purposes, if you need a handkerchief to lend to the ladies' party or to wipe the sweat from your forehead, use a napkin. New jackets or suits often have sewn-in pockets, so you have to open the chest pocket to be able to use a handkerchief. However, leave the side pockets sewn together as these affect the jacket's fall and fit.
