by Amedeo Exclusive Executive

Men are really passionate about pocket squares when it comes to looking fashionable and stylish. Besides watches, socks, cufflinks, and ties, men also want to invest in some good pocket squares which they can flaunt at the occasions and functions they are attending. In fact, they are also a way to showcase their class and elegance. They use pocket squares and hankys to tell their personality to others as well.


Not only buying, but you must also focus on taking proper care and storing of the pocket squares to make them long-lasting and to keep their shine and brightness as it is.


Cleaning Your Pocket Squares

·         It is important to use good quality soaps for cleaning the pocket squares.

·         For silk ones, it is better to dry clean.

·         Pocket squares made of wool can be washed by hands.

·         Never put the pocket squares inside washing machine other than polyester ones.

·         Try to read the instructions written on them before you start washing.

·         Wash the wool pocket squares in lukewarm water.

·         Never use hot water to clean the pocket squares.

·         The pocket squares must be air dried and not machine dried.

Organizing Your Pocket Squares

You may think that it is easy to store or organize pocket squares inside your wardrobe. But it is baffling to figure out the exact ways by which the small pieces of fabrics can be stored, especially when you have more than one-pieces. In that case, you can fold them and place them in one of your jacket’s pocket to avoid misplacing them. It will also be easier for you to remember where you have kept them inside the huge wardrobe. You may also organize them color-wise, like you may keep all the solid colored ones together and the printed ones together. Take the help of a small box in keeping your pocket squares. Keep it on one of the sides of the wardrobe so that you do not forget about it. You can also put a name tag on it if you are too forgetful or you have many boxes inside such as one for hankys
