Clearly, Fort Belvedere pocket squares are made of Irish linen, but many are not familiar with the origins and characteristics of this classic material. Linen has been used for thousands of years and is derived from the fibres of the flax plant that is spun into yarn. In order to qualify as Irish linen yarn, it must be spun in Ireland; likewise, Irish linen fabric must be woven in Ireland. Today, the best flax is grown on the mainland in Europe, where we also source our flax. It is then spun, woven and finished in Ireland. In theory, good linen can be produced anywhere, however Ireland has a long standing tradition of producing high quality linen, and hence Irish linen is often used as a synonym for top notch quality. Like so many things, linen comes in different thicknesses & qualities. We thoroughly tested the available varieties, ranging from coarser linen to the finest double damask, and settled on a quality that was particularly well suited for pocket squares - elegant and crisp without added bulk.
Most pocket squares are sized to get the largest number of pocket squares per yard of fabric. Unfortunately, this doesn't result in pocket squares with the right size, especially because every fabric has a different weight and weave. Most white linen squares are 43 cm x 43cm - 17" x 17" in size, and while they may work as handkerchiefs in the back pocket of your trousers, they are too big for the chest pocket and make pockets looked stuffed. Similarly, a linen pocket square in 33 cm x 33 cm - 13" x 13" is too small, because it disappears into the pocket over the course of a day.
After extensive testing, we concluded that 38cm x 38 cm - 15" x" 15" was the perfect size for our monogrammed linen pocket squares. Our plain white linen pochettes come with your embroidered initial- tone on tone - so the lady will never forget who provided her with a hankerchief when she needed it the most. That aside, it's always nice to have a personalized accessory. All Fort Belvedere pocket squares - no matter whether they have an initial or not - are meticulously hand-rolled.
By nature, linen is very prone to wrinkles. Once you are done wearing it, remove it from your pocket and fold it. If your pochette is too wrinkled, iron it hot with steam or a bit of water from the underside and it should look like new again.
