The Square Fold | Presidential Fold

  1. Begin with the square fully unfolded and flat.
  2. Fold the square to the width of your jacket pocket. In most cases, straight down the middle should do it.
  3. Fold up from the bottom to form a finished rectangle the same width as your pocket, and about half an inch longer.
