Pockets Suit Handkerchief
The first pocket handkerchief made of white linen appeared in Egypt and was primarily used for hygiene. However, it was King Richard II of England who popularized the use of colored silk handkerchiefs and pocket squares.
Later, in the 14th century, French nobles used perfumed silk handkerchiefs that they carried to their noses in order to mask unpleasant smells. Eventually, it was at the court of the French King, Louis XVI, that the colorful pocket square reached its peak as a refined and discreet accessory.
The emergence of two-piece suits ultimately transformed this once-valueless item into a true decorative accessory dedicated to gentlemen. Today, wearing a pocket square allows one to stand out by adopting a unique style that blends History and Modernity.
