The Straight Shell
The Straight Shell is a simple yet smart-looking fold. It is quick and easy to fold and perfect for any social occasion.
- First reduce the size of your pocket square by folding in half and then in half again the other way. It should now be a 9" square. Make the first pleat by lifting some fabric up near the bottom and move it up over the material above a little way. That is your first pleat.
- Repeat the process picking up a little more fabric above the first pleat and moving it and the first pleat a little further up.
- Adjust the pleats to be equal distance apart, then fold the whole right half behind the left and place in pocket with the pleats up.
