Best Pocket Handkerchief for your Industry

 

What is the best pocket handkerchief for your industry?

To answer this question, we are going to focus on 2 elements, placement style and fabric.

The 3 placement styles of focus are- the Square, the Plume and the Peaks along with 3 fabrics - Cotton, Linen and Silk.

Firstly, the Square is only really successful when done with cotton, linen and silk don’t have enough structure to hold the sharp lines.

The Square is the sharpest of the placements. It sends the message of sophisticated and looks a little more serious for business which works for following industries:

  • Law
  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Real Estate

The best colour for the square placement is white. You can try a light blue, but anything else distracts the eye to the pocket hank, which you don’t want. A self patterned white is good option. It gives a slight texture and lustre variance which is little more interesting than a plain white. The best height is 1 – 1.25cm above the pocket.

The Plume is the more casual of the placements. It send the message of creativity, generally meaning you are less restricted by the rules and you are an individual. This works for the following industries:

  • Architect
  • Advertising & Media
  • Academics
  • Restaurateurs
  • Real Estate

The Plume placement has the ability to use cotton, linen or silk. The best height is 3- 5cm above the pocket. This placement  is my personal favourite.

If you choose to use the Peaks please don’t place it like the 80’s high school graduation. Otherwise you will look old and out of touch. It is the middle ground between the square and the plume. Please note, the only way to use the Peaks is to twist and curve the fabric leading up to the  Peaks (Corners of the pocket hank). The Peaks can sit a little higher than the plume at 4 – 6cm above the pocket. This works for the following industries:

  • Architect
  • Advertising & Media
  • Restaurateurs
  • Real Estate 

Cotton and linen are better for the Peaks placement as the silk doesn’t quite have enough structure.

You should have a minimum of 4 pocket hanks with one for Formal/Business, casual, race and cocktail occasions.. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Let me know if I haven’t included your industry and I will ensure to update this article.
