I have railed against the practice before but the influence of television is strong so let me repeat myself. Do not wear neatly folded white linen handkerchiefs in your jacket breast pockets. Stuff them in. Display them rumpled and irregular, as if they were employed to wipe spilled champagne from a lady's dress mere moments ago. For an important part of dressing well is to look as though you did not try too hard.
The man in the photo? Edward Molyneux, the first of the great dress designers. With pocket handkerchief worn properly.
