There is anecdotal evidence that the Presidential fold of a pocket square got its name around the time that President Harry S. Truman was in office. The sober Presidential fold (also known as the flat fold) is quite similar to the TV fold in that both reveal a straight narrow strip of fabric above the breast pocket. While the end results are similar, the execution differs. As I explained in my last post, the TV fold is done on the diagonal. In contrast, the Presidential fold is done on the square.
