History of the Pocket SquareThe origins of the pocket square can be traced back to ancient Egypt. Linen cloth was dyed and decorated with red powder in order to depict an individuals wealth. We can also trace it's origins to the Ancient Greeks. Who scented the cloth with perfume to ensure they always had pleasant aromas near by. It's suggested that King Richard II of England was the first person to wear a handkerchief as a fashion accessory. The pocket square truly came into it's own when the two piece suit originated in the 19th century. Gentlemen wore there handkerchief in their left breast pocket to avoid mixing with their coins and other dirty objects in their pockets. The pocket square is now an essential part of any good suit, providing a gentlemen with a touch of elegance and style.
