In the 19th century when the 2 piece suit became the mainstay of gentlemen’s fashion, it occurred to well dressed men that they didn’t want their pristine handkerchiefs mixing with the coins and other dirty objects carried in their pockets and hence transferred it to their top left breast pocket.
This style continued to become more popular into the early 20th century as different folding techniques became prevalent. Today, the pocket square has established itself as a key piece of accessory for the modern gent's suit. When done right, a well chosen pocket square adds detailing and upgrade to one's look.
