Some men don’t even undo the stitching in the pocket that comes with a new suit. However, men are once again rediscovering the art of sporting a pocket square.

The pocket square is a small accessory that when added to an outfit, allows men to express themselves and vary their look without having to buy a whole bunch of different suits. The History of the Pocket Square The origin of the pocket square goes all the way back to the ancient Greeks. In the early 1900′s, a dapper gentleman would never leave the house without a pocket square tucked neatly into his suit’s breast pocket. Pocket Square Guidelines Color co-ordinating.

Turn Your Old Router Into A Range-Boosting Wi-Fi Repeater If you're upgrading to a faster, stronger wireless router, don't chuck your older Wi-Fi box.

Intro Men's Pocket Squares & Mens Handkerchiefs The Pocket Square - An Introduction Of all the various accessories available to the gentleman, the handkerchief in the jacket's breast pocket is quite likely the least understood. What color to choose, which fabric is right, and how to fold it properly are just some of the questions that add to the apprehension. Pocket Square Rule # 1 The cardinal rule of dress handkerchiefs – or pocket squares, as they're often called – is that the handkerchief is never identical to the tie. Pocket Square Rule # 2 One never uses a dress handkerchief for anything but show. A warning: many retailers offer small squares of cardboard with fabric attached, intended to imitate the look of a square without actually learning to fold it. The options for dress handkerchiefs are endless: a wide number of fabrics from which to choose, an infinite array of colors and patterns, and a world of origami-like folds await the gentleman who decides to adopt it.

Heading Out on Your Own — Day 21: Know Your Way Around a Kitchen If there remains a lingering sense among older generations of men that cooking is “women’s work,” I would think it is probably fading greatly among the younger set.

Maturing into a grown man means becoming self-sufficient, so daily dependence isn’t an option. Keeps you healthy and strong. Saves you money. Impresses the ladies. Gives you enjoyment. Now, I’m not a home cooking zealot. Let’s get started. Thanks Matt! 1.
