Storing pocket squares - Page 3

post #31 of 51
I stack all of them up, and use a trouser hanger and hang them on my clothes rack. The trouser hanger I'm talking about is the kind that clamps together. Like This

Ages ago, at a small traditional men's store, they gently wadded their silk pocketsquares and tossed them into a one foot tall, glass brandy snifter. It showed all the colors and patterns and looked fun. It was ideal for silk PSs and most guys at the time wore them with a gently puff anyway. I used that for many years myself on top of my dresser in the closet.

I keep mine folded in a shoe box atop my shoe shelf. I also keep my ties in a shoe box, I used to just hang them on a hanger but like the box better-they're covered.

Mine are in a small basket on the closet shelf.

So, what's the conclsion? How do I store my pocket squares? I won't stack them for unless you take the top hankie, you mess up the pile and wrinkle all the other hankies. Hanging them on hangers is onconvenient and sloppy. Throwing them into a bucket is just a bit too sprezzatura for me (I like a crisp linen hanky). And I don't have a survace large enough unto which I can just lay them out.

So say you wanted to access the white pocket square: you'd tug it out and in the process you'd mash up the red pocket square, which you'll either have to readjust or will get creased...

"Just" handkerchiefs??

Try this. A bit Germanic for my tastes.

Wrong forum, buddy.

For my part, I simply affix each pocket square to my valet with a tiny bit of tape.

This keeps all squares visible at all times.

Plus, when he walks, they flutter.

I love the level of OCD you guys have.

I don't feel alone anymore.

Then by process of elimination you sound like a good candidate for the revolving clip rack.

I fold my squares (loosely) and stack them in two translucent plastic shoe boxes purchased from the Container Store. I own waaaaaay too many of them, but I can't seem to part with any. A third shoe box seems inevitable one day.
