Fresh Look of the Week: Norfolk Pocket Square

by James Brooks | August 05, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Norfolk Pocket Square is soon to be the most versatile pocket square in your wardrobe. Wear it as a solid or as a polka dot. Wear it formal or wear it casual. Anything you throw at this pocket square, it can handle it. It's basically the James Bond of pocket squares. If you're a Bedford & Broome fan, by now you know that we like to pair contrasting fabrics together in one piece. Patch tail neckties, double-sided bow ties, and now patch pocket squares. Now that we've introduced you to patch pocket squares, it's time we show you how to wear them.

The Pocket Square

We combined a navy chambray and a navy and white polka dot cotton to bring you the ultimate pocket square for your summer blue tones. White pearl stitching along the edge adds that extra detail especially when folding it in the Presidential Fold or the Reverse Puff.

Bedford Casual

Denim button-up shirt, sleeves rolled up, and a clean crisp Presidential fold in the pocket. Throw on a pair of light brown chinos with a nice leather belt and you've got the makings for a well-put-together casual look. You'll be the best looking guy in the room. Remember, you can never be over-dressed, but you can always be under-dressed.

Broome Formal

Put together a sharp and proper-fitting blazer with a quality dress shirt and you have the makings for wearing the pocket square as a formal look. In this instance, we're showing off the two fabrics as well as the finely detailed pearl stitching. The blazer and shirt are what give you the formal look and the pocket square is versatile enough to roll with the dressed up look.
