    LOOKS AMAZING! But what is it?

    Try this. A bit Germanic for my tastes.

    These are just hankerchiefs... I have bigger problems to solve in life.

    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.

    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.
    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.

    The CD case there is a good idea. I suppose a file folder would also work well for that.

    Personally I'm thinking of affixing clips to the lip of a dresser drawer. Currently they are just stacked haphazardly atop said dresser.

    Also, where do I get such a rack? I'd get anything to store these hankies.

    I just fold and stack them on a shelf in my closet. I want to eventually add another drawer in the closet and then put them in that.

    laid out flat in a shoebox. I only have about 20 so it's not a huge deal yet.
