NO, this blog is not about Lebron, King James, or the New Lebronomy.
Instead, I am writing about another phenomenon, while not as crazy as all this Lebronmania, it’s something all of you should be paying attention to.
Have noticed recently that men of all ages have started to don a tiny piece of cloth that extends out of their jacket pocket?
This cloth, which was originally called a handkerchief , and was intended for personal hygiene purposes such as blowing your nose, ( why would you want to wear something like this?) has become the next big fashion item, now called, pocket squares.
This worldwide style phenomenon, which I promptly jumped on as yet another example of my self expression, has prompted many questions about how to use a pocket square?
So, if you are interested in joining the brotherhood of men who love clothes and who broadcast their membership like a badge of honor on their chests for all to bear witness, I give you the:
Top Ten Commandments of the Pocket Square
I. THOU SHALT NOT SPEND (TOO MUCH).
II. THOU SHALT HAVE FUN.
III. THOU SHALT THINK TWICE BEFORE CHOOSING.
IV. THOU SHALT START WITH A WHITE LINEN SQUARE.
V. THOU SHALT COMPLEMENT, NOT DUPLICATE.
VI. THOU SHALT BE BRAVE.
VII. THOU SHALT KNOW WHEN TO ABSTAIN.
VIII. THOU SHALT SHOWCASE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR OUTFIT
IX. THOU SHALT ADAPT YOUR FOLD TO YOUR MOOD.
X. THOU SHALT HAVE SQUARE OR BE SQUARE.
So there you have it.
Just understand that wearing a pocket square is like a secret handshake, or sign of recognition among those in the know.
And that’s what Nudelberg says!
