Irish Linen Handkerchiefs
The Most Important Accessory
As well-dressed gentlemen, there is nothing more important than the proper accessories to complete our look. In recent months, I have written about wallets, business card cases, fountain pens and the like. Now is the time to address the most important accessory you must have; the crisp, Irish linen handkerchief impeccably folded and stationed in the breast pocket of your suit, sport jacket and/or blazer. This single accessory completes your look. I strongly recommend a three or four point fold of the handkerchief as opposed to a straight fold...which tend to make one look more like an news anchor than a Brooks Brothers gentlemen. The glances of envy from lesser men will not go unnoticed. The admiration you will receive from the ladies as a gentleman who obviously takes care of all the details in life will be realized the minute you enter the world outside your door. Never ever leave your dressing room without one. Wear one tomorrow and and you'll see what I mean. Now...off you go.

Out of an order for 12 new handkerchiefs, one was faulty in that the hand-rolled stitching was coming apart.

Not Irish Linen
They are advertised as Irish Linen Handkerchiefs, but when they arrive they have a sticker on each handkerchief that says 'made in China.' They're not very high quality. I wouldn't buy them again, especially for the price.

I couldn't be happier with these squares. The material is crisp and holds its shape. Perfect. White linen is always correct and always discreet. If you only own one pocket square like me, this should be it.
