I was recently talking with a friend about the fact that we can buy literally anything on the market today. He said that he knows that he could buy a phone and a pair of shoes for less than a dollar, but he doesn’t do it. He knows that he could buy a pair of shoes for less than a dollar, but he doesn’t do it.
He did it. He bought a pocket square. And I, for one, am glad he did. Because, unlike so many people out there, I actually know what I’m doing.
It’s not like the pocket square industry is some sort of new phenomenon that only exists in the minds of people of color. It’s actually quite old, having been around since the 1930s. I got my first pocket square in the 1990s, and every year since then I’ve needed to buy more. Not only have I bought more pocket squares, I’ve gotten so many, I now have one in my pocket.
So when you think about it, the pocket square industry is pretty simple. You need just a few things to make a decent pocket square, and you can put a bunch of stuff in a big bag and slap it on your back. And I know this because its what I do every year, even though I have no idea what Im doing. Its like having one of those little yellow pill packs that you take to work for just a few minutes.
I think this industry is huge, but it really only exists on the Internet. When I’m at the mall and I see a bag of yellow pill packs, I know it’s a good idea to buy more. The pockets are usually huge and filled to the brim with all sorts of good stuff. I even have a bunch in my desk drawer waiting to be used. This is where the “pocket square industry” comes into play.
They’re like little mini-pocket squares of all sorts of goodies. I’ve seen people walking around with like a hundred of them in their pockets. I get the whole idea that they’re so fun and useful and I really like them. But when you’re looking at them you can’t use them. The reason is that they’re not small enough or big enough. They’re made out of plastic, and those little squares are tiny.
The problem is that most of these little squares are small enough to fit into your pocket and that means youre basically forced to carry them around with you. The only places you can use them is on the end of a lanyard or around your neck. You cant use them in your back pocket or on your keychain or anywhere else. Thats why you make a special pocket square for your phone and it looks like its got a bunch of little squares inside of it.
There are a few different types of “pocket squares” and each type has its own purpose. Some of these are useful just for carrying around and the rest are specifically designed to make it easier to write on. You can even make a “regular” pocket square, but if you do, you can bet that you are going to be carrying it around in your pocket for a long time.
The basic pocket square is actually a square of fabric, the actual fabric square, that is designed to allow the writing on it to stay in place. This is called a “firm.” The best pocket squares are made of softer materials (such as a blend of cotton and polyester) and are extremely sturdy.
The best pocket squares are made of soft materials. This is important because the soft fabric allows the paper to stay in place and makes it easy for the ink to spread out. One downside of pocket squares is that they can easily become torn with a heavy hand. Another downside is that they are messy to write on.
