How to Fold a Two Peak Fold

The Two Peak Pocket Square Fold is a classic favourite. It offers two twin peaks that stand side-by-side in the crest of your suit pocket. We couldn't think of a more dashing way to polish off your suit ensembles! The Two Peak Fold showcases both the front and back side of your pocket square, so make sure you don't use a pocket square that has a distinguishable front and back! At OTAA, we like to think of the Two Peak Fold as a cheap way of gazing at two breathtaking mountain tops in the Swiss Alps. It packs a breathtaking view without the cost of an international plane ticket. You're welcome!
