That is the SF-famous Foo fold.

I believe there's an explanation in the Good Taste Thread. Too bad his blog is deader than a Norwegian blue. My probably slightly wrong recollection:

* Pinch from the center and stuff the corners into the breast pocket on the side closer to the lapel.

* Fold the pinched center toward the other side of the pocket with the square against the jacket, not held away from it.

* As you fold, rotate as you please to reveal pattern or get pleasing folds in the fabric.

* Stuff the pinched center into the far side of the pocket.

* Adjust to taste.

I find it too colourful - the victorys and Samurai i own anyway.

 

Another excellent source for squares are the Etro squares: certainly overpriced but the silks and designs are wonderful and the size is again, very generous. They can be  had on sale.

 

JCmeyer, i never wear the plain skyblue shirt with charcoal; i know it is sacrilege on this site to admit it but it doesn't work for me. Before someone screams that it was Mr. Bond's uniform, good for the Imperialistic womaniser. I believe Will of ASW admitted he didn't like the combination years ago - much to the disapproval of many. My go to shirts with Charc is striped blue-on-white, pinks, pink/maroon-on-white and of course, solid white shirt.

I found the "charcoal" discussion rather interesting.

Personally, I am not a very big fan of charcoal. I think that it is optimal for a suit to be a shade lighter than charcoal--maybe "dark grey"--to be warm enough to wear with a variety of colors. However, that line--the line between charcoal and dark grey--is very thin. In the same vein, however, I think that a midnight blue suit is also difficult to wear with anything but the most staid of accessories. I think that both dark navy and charcoal suits benefit from either a little texture, or a little depth to the color. I had this same kind of issue when I was picking out fabrics. I ended up landing on the following, which I think benefits from the CBD-ness of charcoal, but is light enough to be more versatile:



With regards to squares, I think dark grey / charcoal suits benefit from the Rubi ones. They have enough cream and tan to bridge the gap into more "adventurous" colors. So I highly recommend. They are also beyond beautiful.
