    Pocket Square in Jeans Pocket

    Is this doable irl?



    Looks cool in the photo but not sure if it translates to reality

    Thoughts?

    I've seen a guy around town who does this, but in his back pocket. It's a hard look to pull, I guess keeping the pocket square as neutral as possible would help. I really fancy trying it, but its defiantly a summer look!

    Yeah agree on both points above

    I think it works in the pic thanks to the combo of bright coloured jeans and complementary colours in the square

    IDK if it's just too contrived though. Could see it working with a plain tee and some leather sandals on a summer's eve

    Will try it when I'm on holiday somewhere swanky

    re the OP, I definitely agree this can be done. I can see it working on a relaxed evening meal on a holiday in the sun. Would have to swag it out, but I don't think you'll have a problem with that Pins!

    I'm liking that look a lot. I totally agree with all the comments too.

    I think I'd have to go for the back pocket though as I always stuff my hands in my pockets.

    Before everyone starts rocking the backpocket square look, don't forget the back pocket bandaan code, in case you sign yourself up for more than you bargained for, especially brown pocket squares!

    Handkerchief code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hahaha. Oh my goodness. I was already going to suggest that this is too contrived of a look and isn't plausible in the "real world". However, after reading through the "Handkerchief Code", no more has to be said...

    I really don't think it will work. It will almost certainly come across as try hard (as much as we all hate the phrase) and completely pointless; there isn't really any need to put anything in your pocket and it will just get in the way. Its the kind of thing you'd see in an editorial; it looks good in a magazine but never in the real world.
