Pre-folded Squares: Too gauche for words, or convenient sartorial statement?

just don't, if for whatever reason you are ever exposed in public as having a fake pocket square you will, rightfully, want to die.

It's indicative of the forces tearing jacket and tie culture apart. Now here is a market of men who clearly want to wear these items but possess considerable anxiety with getting it wrong. In the meantime matters arent helped much by their being laughed at; which I am also guilty of.

I suppose they should be encouraged? I don't know why someone would want to wear a silk square in such a complex (and neatly set) fold.

Unacceptable. Part of the charm of the pocket square is the fact that it was folded itself by the gentleman wearing it, complete with any idiosyncrasies in the fold, in my opinion.

Do people find it that hard to fold a square?

This product has been around for decades. I remember my grandfather using them. They are awful.

I wear velcro shoes (with fake laces) so this is perfect for me.

Yes, the ones my grandfather had had advertising on them.
