CEO Chip Bergh made headlines at <em>Fortune</em>&rsquo;s Brainstorm Green conference when he announced that, despite owning them for more than a year, he had never washed the jeans he was wearing. Immediately, media outlets ranging from <a href=\"\">CNN</a> to <a href=\"\">Slate</a> were either treating Bergh&rsquo;s words as gold or questioning just how sanitary the &ldquo;never wash&rdquo; method was.</p>\n<p>A few weeks later, Bergh took to <a href=\"\">LinkedIn</a> to clarify his position, stating it was more about sustaining natural resources than it was about sustaining that perfect indigo wash. His point was that most people wash their jeans far more than they really need to, which is bad for both denim and the planet.</p>\n<p>Yet for anyone who has ever watched their beloved dark denim fade in the wash, the question remains: what <em>is</em> the best way to clean your jeans? Below, we broke down three popular approaches to denim care and analyzed the pros and cons of each.</p>\n<p><a href=\"\"><img class=\"alignnone size-full wp-image-26055\" src=\"\" alt=\"ideel-style-shop-banner_600c137\" width=\"600\" height=\"137\" /></a></p>\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">1. The Freezer Method</strong></p>\n<p><strong>What it is:</strong> Stashing your lived-in jeans in the freezer overnight, proponents believe, helps kill surface bacteria and neutralizes odors.</p>\n<p><strong>Who recommends it:</strong> The freezer method has shown up on countless lifestyle blogs, including <a href=\"\">Apartment Therapy</a>, but was also endorsed by Levi&rsquo;s vice president of women&rsquo;s design in a <a href=\"\">2013 interview with <em>Elle</em></a>.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Pros:</strong> Zero water waste and no chance of jeans shrinking or fading.</li>\n<li><strong>Cons:</strong> It doesn&rsquo;t actually work. <a href=\"\"><em>Smithsonian</em> magazine</a> debunked the freezer method after interviewing a University of Delaware expert on frozen microbes, who attested that typical freezer temperatures would not be low enough to kill surface bacteria. Freezing jeans also won&rsquo;t rid them of spots or stains.</li>\n</ul>\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">2. The Vinegar Method</strong></p>\n<p><strong>What it is:</strong> A hand wash in cold water and vinegar. Fans of this method also recommend hanging the jeans to dry afterward, since the heat of the dryer can cause jeans to lose their shape.</p>\n<p><strong>Who recommends it:</strong> <a href=\"\"></a> and <a href=\"\"></a>, among others.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Pros:</strong> Removal of odors, bacteria, and surface stains. It can also minimize the shrinking and fading that comes with machine washing with detergent.</li>\n<li><strong>Cons:</strong> acknowledges that vinegar can help minimize color bleeding but doesn&rsquo;t prevent it entirely. Plus, line-drying denim can make it stiff and crunchy, an obvious con for those who prefer a soft, broken-in feel.</li>\n</ul>\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">3. The Spot-Clean Method</strong></p>\n<p><strong>What it is:</strong> Instead of fully submerging jeans in the wash, simply wipe away spots and surface dirt using a sponge, some water, and a small amount of detergent.</p>\n<p><strong>Who recommends it:</strong> In a follow-up post to his aforementioned announcement, Bergh admitted he uses this method most often when his jeans need a quick refresh. It&rsquo;s also recommended on the <a href=\"\">Levi&rsquo;s website</a>.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Pros:</strong> Easy, low water waste, and unlikely to cause significant fading or shrinking.</li>\n<li><strong>Cons:</strong> Won&rsquo;t eliminate the odors or oily residue that can build up on jeans with prolonged wear.</li>\n</ul>\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">Our Verdict:</strong></p>\n<p>Because it&rsquo;s backed by Levi&rsquo;s and actually removes dirt&mdash;no offense, freezer method&mdash;it seems like <strong>spot cleaning is the way to go</strong>. Of course, you&rsquo;d probably do well to still machine wash your jeans every once in awhile.</p>\n<p>But don&rsquo;t worry, you don&rsquo;t have to do it <em>too</em> often. As <em>Smithsonian</em> also discovered, another experiment &ldquo;found little difference in the bacterial load between one pair of jeans worn for 15 months without washing and another pair worn for 13 days.&rdquo; That means you could go more than 450 days (or wears, technically) before a single wash!</p>\n<p>Whatever time frame you feel comfortable with, just be gentle when you wash: turn your jeans inside out, wash in cold water, and lie flat to dry to prevent shrinking. And if you just need to tighten up a stretched-out pair, toss 'em in the dryer (again, inside out) on low to regular heat.</p>\n<p><img alt=\"13Olz4k\" title=\"source:\" src=\"\" /> <em style=\"font-size: .75em;\">Above: the least talked-about cleaning method: reverse time-lapse photography.</em></p>\n<hr />\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">The Groupon Guide solves your other clothing conundrums:</strong></p>\n<table>\n<tbody>\n<tr>\n<td><a href=\"\"><img alt=\"all denim outfits thumb1\" style=\"float: left; margin-right: 13px; margin-bottom: 13px;\" src=\"\" width=\"100%\" /></a></td>\n<td><a href=\"\"><img alt=\"cashmere care thumb 460c299\" style=\"float: left; margin-right: 13px; margin-bottom: 13px;\" src=\"\" width=\"100%\" /></a></td>\n</tr>\n<tr>\n<td style=\"text-align: center;\"><strong>How to Wear Denim on Denim</strong></td>\n<td style=\"text-align: center;\"><strong>How to Wash a Cashmere Sweater Without Totally Ruining It</strong></td>\n</tr>\n</tbody>\n</table>\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">Shop Groupon Goods for <a href=\";category2=household-products\">household products</a>:</strong></p>\n<table>\n<tbody>\n<tr>\n<td><a href=\"\"><img alt=\"deal widget pods 330c273\" style=\"float: left; margin-right: 13px; margin-bottom: 13px;\" src=\"\" width=\"100%\" /></a></td>\n<td><a href=\"\"><img alt=\"deal widget detergent 330c273\" style=\"float: left; margin-right: 13px; margin-bottom: 13px;\" src=\"\" width=\"100%\" /></a></td>\n</tr>\n</tbody>\n</table>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>","created_on":"2014-12-05T19:19:25.000Z","fb_og_description":"We weighed the pros and cons of the internet’s three best never-wash methods, and found you should never say never.

Naturally, it was about shoes. Allegedly, some female guests who arrived at films wearing <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">flats</a> were turned away and told their flat-bottomed <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">shoes</a> were not in keeping with the black-tie dress code.</p><p>Cannes contested the story, but it spread like wildfire. The press nicknamed it “Flatgate.” Rashida Jones called it “sexist”—why must women wear painful footwear while men loll around in loafers? Benicio del Toro agreed and vowed to wear <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">heels</a> to the Cannes premiere of his film, <i>Sicario</i>, in protest. (He then broke his vow because he couldn’t find heels in his size.) </p><p>The hullabaloo highlighted high heels’ odd place in our culture: women are often expected to wear them at formal occasions, but they’re also painful and—at least at first pass—hard to walk in. Deciding when and where to wear them is hard enough when you’re grown, but what about when you’ve never worn them before? Below, we talk to a style blogger, a <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">podiatrist</a>, and some real-life high-heel wearers to figure out just when tiny feet are ready for tall shoes. \n</p><h2>How Do I Know If My Kid Is Ready?</h2><p><i>Some questions to consider before you hit the stiletto store.\n</i></p><p><b>Does your kid want to wear high heels?\n</b></p><p>There are plenty of reasons why they might. <b>Isa Giallorenzo, the style blogger behind <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Chicago Looks</a></b>, said, “I love heels! I think they're amazing. They totally change the way you walk, your proportions. … I think it's worth [some] sacrifice.” </p><p><b>Groupon writer Lisa Farver</b> agreed. “I think it's great to let your kids play dress up in whatever they want.” </p><p>If your kid <i>doesn’t</i> want to wear heels, though, everyone I talked to agreed: no need to impose. A dressy flat works for formal occasions, too (unless your kid is jetting off to Cannes).\n</p><p><b>Can your kid walk in heels?</b></p><p>If not, it might be time for some practice around the house. <b>Groupon writer Kelly MacDowell </b>said, “You don't want your kid tearing around the church banquet in heels. Hello, emergency room.”</p><p><b>Is looking good your kid’s number-one priority?\n</b></p><p>If so, talk to your kid about how fun is always more important than footwear. <b>Isa</b> said, regretfully, \"I remember just suffering terribly through the night because of bad shoes, non-practical shoes. … [And] this happened more than once.\" </p><p><b>Lisa</b> recalled a similar experience. “I wish I'd known that it was a bad idea to wear stiletto boots to an outdoor concert. If you can't be comfortable, you aren't going to enjoy the show. And people are really only looking at you because you're limping, not because you look sexy.”\n</p><p><b>Does your kid know which styles are most (and least) comfortable?\n</b></p><p>According to <b>Chicago podiatrist <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Dr. Jeffrey J. Betman</a></b>, comfort is all about the toes. Pointy-toed heels often have “very very narrow and shallow toe boxes,” which can cause nerve pain, tingling, hammertoe, and bunions. “Basically, picture your foot as a square peg trying to fit in a round hole.” Dr. Betman recommends square- or round-toed heels with deeper toe boxes for a more comfortable fit.</p><p><b>Does your kid know how to wear heels in a healthy way?\n</b></p><p>“Walking in high heels does stress the feet quite a bit, the knees and the lower back,” <b>Dr. Betman</b> said. However, there are a few ways to minimize the stress. First, don’t wear heels for more than few hours at a time. Dr. Betman recommended alternating them with gym shoes or flats—shoes that let your calves stretch and your toes spread out—even over the course of one day. </p><p>Also, to maximize your comfort in high heels, he suggested “custom-molded functional foot orthotics that support the arches and distribute the body weight more evenly.” (These especially make sense if you wear heels regularly.)\n</p><p><b>Does your kid know “heels” and “girly” aren’t synonymous?\n</b></p><p>“You don't need to wear heels to feel feminine,” <b>Kelly</b> said. She was a self-described “girly girl” as a kid, into pink, dresses, and “anything that made me feel more feminine.” Since then, though, she’s decided prioritizing comfort works better for her than prioritizing stereotypically girly looks. “As with anything else, you should only wear what you feel comfortable wearing.”\n</p><h2>So What’s the Right Age to Wear Heels?</h2><p><b>Isa</b> said, basically, <b>whenever your kid wants to wear them</b>. “I wouldn't forbid her to wear heels. She'll learn for herself that it's hard.”</p><p><b>Lisa</b> said as early as <b>14</b>. “I think kids are old enough to wear high heels when they can tell the difference between society's <i>expectations</i> about fashion and their personal preferences about style. Sometimes that takes a lifetime!”\n</p><p><b>Dr. Betman</b> said that with “very very occasional [wear], I don’t think it’s a problem at <b>any age</b>.”\n</p><p><b>Kelly</b> said “I think a child is ready for heels when they're ready to act like somewhat of a grown-up. If they can handle saying \"please,\" \"thank you,\" \"sir,\" \"ma'am,\" and \"How's your stock portfolio looking?\" without being prompted by their parents—I'd guess around <b>9 or 10</b>—they're probably ready [for a small heel].”</p><p><i>Photo illustration by Mark Mills, Groupon</i></p><h2>Check out related reads:</h2><a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"right age for tweezing\" class=\"artimg\" width=\"599\" height=\"250\" src=\"\" title=\"\"></a><h2><a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">What's the Right Age to Start Wearing Makeup?</a>\n</h2><p><i>Is 12 too young? 14?

A lot of things are kid-tested, mother-sighed-at, especially when it comes to <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">fashion</a>. Weirding out your mom with your <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">clothes</a> is pretty much a rite of passage. Many of us Groupon writers have done it, some of us spectacularly. </p><p>In honor of Mother’s Day, six of us looked back on the bad trends that our moms gave the Official Mom Side-Eye to.

It was inspired by <i>Jonathan Livingston Seagull</i>, the book that re-convinced me that learning was fun when college was wearing me out. \n</p><p>I told my mom I was going to get it. My copy of <i>JLS</i> was on loan from her. Also, I was 20 and we lived in different cities; legally and physically, she couldn’t stop me. She just asked for a picture. Her official mom reaction: “I think it’s very stupid, and I love you anyway.”</p><p>I disagreed. It was clearly very punk rock (it <i>bled</i>!), but, in hindsight, she was right. If it wasn’t stupid, it was at least corny and predictable. A few months later, Justin Bieber got the same tattoo (although tiny and not filled in) on his hip.

There was a massive <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Dr. Martens</a> store there, and to fit in with some of the older kids, I bought a pair of bright orange ones. They earned me the (I think) affectionate nickname of Ronald McCaffrey from my peers. \n</p><p>My parents had given me an allotted amount of money to spend in London, and when I told my mom over the phone that I had blown most of it on a pair of cartoonish <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">boots</a>, she refused to give me any more. This meant that for the second half of the trip, I had enough scratch to eat but not enough to see plays and go on other educational outings with the other kids.</p><p>Even at the time, I felt my mom was being fair—we've always been close, and those boots really did make me look like a doofus. Also, my feet grew two sizes when I entered eighth grade, so I really only got to wear the Doc Martens for a couple months.

She thought I looked beautiful in bright colors, but I just wanted to fade into the background—literally. </p><p>So I kept up my daily uniform of XL tees and low ponytails.

Instead, they’ve proven to be a mainstay, particularly with fashion-forward celebs—<a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Solange Instagrammed herself wearing one</a>, <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Kristen Stewart rocked one on the red carpet</a>, and <i>Portlandia</i> star <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Carrie Brownstein has been wearing one on Sleater-Kinney’s current tour</a>.</p><p>Part of the appeal is in their ease: throw one on, grab some shoes, and you’re dressed. But knowing how to wear a jumpsuit isn’t always so simple. They show off your figure more than the average garment, so fit is of the utmost importance. Here, we’ve explored 10 different body types and found a jumper to suit them all. </p><h2><i>If your main concern is ... </i></h2><h2>Your bust:</h2><img alt=\"bust jumpsuits\" class=\"alignright\" width=\"300\" height=\"390\" src=\"\" title=\"\" style=\"float: right; margin: 0px 0px 0px 10px; display: block; z-index: 100;\"><p>With a <b>smaller bust</b>, you can try one of two approaches. Divert the eye elsewhere on the upper body with a statement neckline (pictured here) or an open back, or add volume to your top with a <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">pattern</a> or <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">looser cut</a>.</p><p>As with any type of garment, a V-neck will play down a <b>large bust</b>. To balance out a smaller bottom half, try a loose-fitting pant leg (if you’re taller) or a patterned bottom with a plain-colored top (if you’re shorter). </p><p><i>Left: <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">Halter chain jumpsuit</a>, S.L. Fashions ($59.99); Right: <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Shawl collar jumpsuit</a>, A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz ($109.99)</i></p><h2>Your curves (or lack thereof):</h2><img alt=\"curves\" class=\"alignleft\" width=\"300\" height=\"390\" src=\"\" title=\"\" style=\"float: left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; display: block; z-index: 100;\"><p>If you have an <b>hourglass shape</b>, congratulations! Jumpers were basically invented for you. Let your figure show with a clean, curve-hugging silhouette that hits the natural waist, and feel free to experiment with color, print, and <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">strapless designs</a>.</p><p>A layered piece like the one at right gives <b>slender </b>gals more volume. A <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">tie waist</a> or <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">peplum</a> can also create the illusion of a curvier figure.\n</p><p><i>Left: <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Natural white jumpsuit</a>, Rachel Roy ($119.99); Right: <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Pinstripe jumpsuit</a>, English Factory ($49.99)</i><br><br><br></p><h2>Your height:</h2><img alt=\"height jumpsuits\" class=\"alignright\" width=\"300\" height=\"390\" src=\"\" title=\"\" style=\"float: right; margin: 0px 0px 0px 10px; display: block; z-index: 100;\"><p>A high waist can make a <b>short</b> woman look like she has longer legs. Opt for a tapered leg over a wide one, as extra volume could swallow you up. A bold, head-to-toe print can also be overwhelming on a smaller frame.</p><p>Conversely, <b>tall</b> girls can get away with wearing more fabric. You’re more suited to handle a super-wide leg than anyone, and halters and racerbacks beautifully complement a longer neck and torso.</p><p><i>Left: <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">Short-sleeve printed jumpsuit</a>, Nina Leonard ($39.99); Right: <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">Sleeveless funnel-neck jumpsuit</a>, Marc New York ($59.99)</i></p><h2>Your torso:</h2><img alt=\"torso jumpsuit\" class=\"alignleft\" width=\"300\" height=\"390\" src=\"\" title=\"\" style=\"float: left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; display: block; z-index: 100;\"><p>A high neckline (especially with an eye-catching embellishment like the one pictured here) and a drop waist will elongate a <b>shorter torso</b>. If you’re tall enough to handle a wide leg, that will also draw the eye down.</p><p>For a <b>long torso</b>, first look for a print, as this will distract the eye from your natural waist. Also, look for a straighter silhouette (or leave a drawstring tied more loosely) to leave your natural proportions more of a mystery. </p><p><i>Left: <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Jumpsuit with embellished neckline</a>, MSK ($39.99); Right: <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">Sleeveless printed jumpsuit</a>, Mlle Gabrielle ($24.99)</i><br><br></p><h2>Balancing your proportions:</h2><img alt=\"balancing proportions\" class=\"alignright\" width=\"300\" height=\"390\" src=\"\" title=\"\" style=\"float: right; margin: 0px 0px 0px 10px; display: block; z-index: 100;\"><p>It might sound counterintuitive, but those with <b>broad shoulders</b> can minimize their size by choosing a jumper with an embellished shoulder. Try colorblocking with a lighter hue, or softening the curve with a fine mesh inlay. Again, if you’re taller, a wide leg can balance out your bottom half.\n</p><p>Colorblocking is also helpful for balancing out <b>wider hips or a larger bottom</b>. A dark leg is slimming, and when paired with a lighter top will draw the eye up. A cinched waist and <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">flowy top</a> can also help create a more hourglass shape.</p><p><i>Left: <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">Colorblock blouson jumpsuit</a>, Sangria ($39.99); Right: <a href=\";discovered=categories\" target=\"_blank\">Two-tone jumpsuit</a>, Sandra Darren ($39.99) </i></p><h2><i>And one last tip for everyone … </i></h2><p>Unless you are very tall, long garments such as jumpsuits can actually make the body look shorter.

Monterotti ducks into his office to retrieve a <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">tie</a>, and not just any tie. The 6&rsquo;7&rdquo; founder of <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Peter Field</a>, a custom tie and <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">pocket-square</a> maker in Chicago's Loop, is after a one-of-a-kind specimen. In the meantime, his 11th floor workspace&mdash;part office, part store, part factory&mdash;buzzes; one of his employees, Sage, is whirring away on a jacket alteration. When Monterotti ducks back into the main room, he's holding an extra-long red, white, and blue tie made from pillowcase fabric. It's the first one he ever made.</p>\n<p>Monterotti, a self-described &ldquo;sales guy&rdquo; who once spent his days working at the Board of Trade and his off time trying to find clothes that fit, decided to produce the crude tie in 2009 after he couldn&rsquo;t find a tailor to make one that fit his tall frame. &ldquo;I bought a sewing machine at Jo-Ann Fabric,&rdquo; he says. &ldquo;The ladies were looking at me like I was crazy.&rdquo;</p>\n<p>But if the $17,500 he raised on Kickstarter in 2013 is any indication, his idea&mdash;that a self-taught clothier can meet the demand for nonstandard versions of common items&mdash;isn&rsquo;t so out there after all. His most sensible creation just might be his line of Multi Squares: double-sided pocket squares that can be folded to create eye-popping color and pattern combinations. I met with Monterotti to ask him how he folds his squares. Here are three folds he taught me:</p>\n<h2>The Classic</h2>\n<p><em>Choose this one if you like the minimalistic fold peeking out of Don Draper&rsquo;s pocket.</em></p>\n<div class=\"iframe-wrapper\" contenteditable=\"false\"><iframe src=\"//\" width=\"600\" height=\"400\" frameborder=\"none\"></iframe></div>\n<p>1. Arrange the fabric into a square.</p>\n<p>2. Fold the right and left sides in, roughly into thirds, so that the square&rsquo;s width matches your pocket&rsquo;s.</p>\n<p>3. Take the top and fold it halfway down.</p>\n<p>4. Place the square fold-side up in your pocket.</p>\n<h2>The Double Peek</h2>\n<p><em>Choose this one if you think one peak is too basic and three or more peaks is too origami.</em></p>\n<div class=\"iframe-wrapper editor-component ui-draggable ui-draggable-handle\" contenteditable=\"false\"><iframe src=\"//\" width=\"600\" height=\"400\" frameborder=\"none\"></iframe></div>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p>1. Arrange the fabric into a diamond. The side you want to be most visible should be facing down.</p>\n<p>2. Take the bottom point and fold it up. It should land just to the right of the top point, leaving a sliver of the other side visible.</p>\n<p>3. Fold the right and left sides in again.</p>\n<p>4. Place the square peak-side up in your pocket.</p>\n<h2>The Poof</h2>\n<p><em>Choose this one if you want your pocket square to look slightly different each time you fold it.</em></p>\n<div class=\"iframe-wrapper editor-component ui-draggable ui-draggable-handle\" contenteditable=\"false\"><iframe src=\"//\" width=\"600\" height=\"400\" frameborder=\"none\"></iframe></div>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p>1. Arrange the fabric however you want, as long as it&rsquo;s flat.</p>\n<p>2. Pinch the fabric at its center and lift up.</p>\n<p>3. Gather the sides together with your free hand.</p>\n<p>4. Nicholas likes to place the poof-side of the square in first and then pull it up and out.</p>\n<p><strong>Parting Tip</strong> All of Peter Field&rsquo;s pocket squares are 8.5&rdquo;x8.5&rdquo;, which is a manageable size to work with. If you have a larger pocket square or handkerchief, fold it down to a more manageable size. For instance, I have a 20&rdquo;x20&rdquo; handkerchief that&rsquo;s a nightmare to fold. I folded it into quarters and used Nicholas&rsquo;s tips and they worked beautifully.</p>\n<p><em>Photos by TIm Burkhart, Groupon</em></p>","created_on":"2014-02-04T18:26:42.000Z","deal_keywords":["suits","ties","suit","tuxedo","blazer","pocket_square","tie","neckties"],"fb_og_description":"A clothier shows three simple ways to fold a pocket square—including one that involves precisely zero folds.","fb_og_title":"If You Can Lift a Napkin, You Can Fold a Pocket Square","imported":false,"last_modified_by":"5339801c197fe9653600000d","last_modified_on":"2016-11-10T15:21:35.495Z","locale":"en_US","location":null,"meta_description":"A clothier shows three simple ways to fold a pocket square, including one with zero folds.","mobile_title":"","permalink":"if-you-can-lift-a-napkin-you-can-fold-a-pocket-square-sb","photos":[{"hero":true,"altText":"If You Can Lift a Napkin, You Can Fold a Pocket Square","caption":"","img_url":"","img_key":""}],"places":[{"m3_id":"47d28755-7d0a-b06a-747e-0140a821de7a"}],"published":"PUBLISHED","published_on":"2016-02-09T19:59:51.879Z","published_permalinks":["if-you-can-lift-a-napkin-you-can-fold-a-pocket-square-sb"],"secondary_categories":["c60d65f4-6015-4ed8-b847-d02fd70b5f14","94abc1b1-b3d5-43f5-b33b-3b1d8256545a","29004ed3-c7d7-4f58-b9fb-2e4ba0f34a18"],"seo_title":"How to Fold a Pocket Square","tags":["style_and_beauty","mens_style","accessories"],"title":"If You Can Lift a Napkin, You Can Fold a Pocket Square","vhp_desc":"A clothier demonstrates the three simple ways to fold a pocket square—including one that involves precisely zero folds.","name":"","schemaOrgAttr":{},"id":"ec857538-ffd7-43be-9d73-a3c6925effbb","guid":"ec857538-ffd7-43be-9d73-a3c6925effbb","imageUrl":"//","bodyColumns":"nine","url":"/articles/if-you-can-lift-a-napkin-you-can-fold-a-pocket-square-sb"},{"article_type":"NATIONAL","author":"66bed501-2a56-4b5e-8470-2d0a48e0df57","author_name":"Sarah Gorr","author_page":false,"category":"938de4d2-b8f5-41c7-860f-94ded05f43c8","content":"<p><img src=\"//\" alt=\"lastminutegifts jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"360\" /></p>\n<p>It&rsquo;s difficult to hit all the right notes on Valentine&rsquo;s Day, even when you&rsquo;ve miraculously set aside enough time to prepare. But what to do when February 14 sneaks up on you? Last-minute <a href=\"\">Valentine's gifts</a> always seem so, well, last-minute, and nothing screams &ldquo;unoriginal&rdquo; like grabbing the only heart-shaped box left on the shelf. Fortunately, we&rsquo;ve compiled a list of five <a href=\"\">romantic gifts</a> that are quick, easy, and thoughtful, too.</p>\n<p><a title=\"Valentine's Gift Shop\" href=\"\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"><img src=\"//\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></a></p>\n<h2><strong>The Usual:</strong> Roses</h2>\n<h3><strong>The Alternative:</strong>&nbsp;A Stroll Through&nbsp;the <a href=\"\">Botanical Garden</a></h3>\n<p>It&rsquo;s hard to go wrong with <a href=\"\">flowers</a>, but if you didn&rsquo;t remember to place your order in time, you might get stuck with that last wilting bouquet at the grocery store. If your date <em>really</em> loves flowers, she&rsquo;ll probably appreciate seeing her favorite buds while they&rsquo;re still on the vine. A romantic stroll around the botanical garden lets you admire nature&rsquo;s beauty while getting some quality time together.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Usual:</strong> Dinner at a Fancy <a href=\"\">Restaurant</a></h2>\n<h3><strong>The Alternative: A <a href=\"\">Cooking Class</a> for Two</strong></h3>\n<p>Valentine&rsquo;s Day is fast approaching, and you suddenly realize you forgot to make a dinner reservation at his favorite <a href=\"\">Italian restaurant</a>. It&rsquo;s certain to be booked by now, so what to do? Don&rsquo;t fret&mdash;just pick up a bottle of chianti or a plummy montepulciano and present it with a certificate for a cooking class for two. This way, you&rsquo;ll avoid a mood-killing wait <em>and</em> learn how to make some of your favorite cuisine together.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Usual:</strong> A Mixtape&nbsp;</h2>\n<h3><strong>The Alternative:</strong>&nbsp;A Pair of <a href=\"\">Concert Tickets</a></h3>\n<p>Streaming services and digital downloads have effectively killed the mixtape, that lost art form that once demanded such time and thought. Somehow, presenting your date with an mp3 player just isn&rsquo;t the same, but there&rsquo;s another way. Flip through his playlists or music library to refresh yourself on his favorite acts, then score tickets to see one of them live. For a little extra panache, tuck the tickets inside the liner notes of a corresponding album.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Usual:</strong> A Stuffed Animal&nbsp;</h2>\n<h3><strong>The&nbsp;Alternative: A Trip to&nbsp;the <a href=\"\">Zoo</a></strong></h3>\n<p>Ah, the stuffed teddy bear, that ultimate last-minute Valentine&rsquo;s Day gift. On sale everywhere from the pharmacy to the grocery store, this gift is as ubiquitous as it is painfully unoriginal. Instead, take your loved one by the hand to see the real thing at your local zoo. It&rsquo;s a nontraditional choice for Valentine&rsquo;s Day, maybe, but it&rsquo;s one that any animal lover is sure to appreciate.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Usual:</strong> Perfume or Cologne&nbsp;</h2>\n<h3><strong>The&nbsp;Alternative:</strong> A Beer or <a href=\"\">Wine Tasting</a></h3>\n<p>No two noses are alike, so there&rsquo;s no way to tell if you&rsquo;re choosing a scent that will make your date gag or swoon. Satisfy the olfactory sense in another (more delicious) way by going out to a beer or wine tasting. Together, you&rsquo;ll learn to pick out the scents of hops and wheat or oak and cedar as you taste your way through your favorite local brewery or vineyard&rsquo;s selection.</p>\n<p><a title=\"Valentine's Gift Guide\" href=\"\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"><img src=\"//\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></a></p>","created_on":"2015-02-02T19:01:35.273Z","fb_og_description":"Drugstore’s all out of roses?

You travel at warp speed, traverse (seemingly) the entire Arctic, see mountains and rivers, and loop back around to start again. And again. OK, one more time. <strong>Bonus tip:</strong> Watching this .gif, it&rsquo;s really easy to pretend you&rsquo;re a superhero. Or a loose-cannon train conductor. <a href=\"\"><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">The Fashionista</strong></a> <img alt=\"giphy\" title=\"beyonce lipstick\" src=\"\" /> <strong>Why it&rsquo;s amazing:</strong> It looks like she is an angel, and her lipstick is &hellip; also an angel. <strong>Bonus tip:</strong> Try to figure out what word she might be mouthing. Our money is on &ldquo;Hawaii.&rdquo; <a href=\"\"><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">The Techie</strong></a> <img alt=\"giphy\" title=\"computer dance\" src=\"\" /> <strong>Why it&rsquo;s amazing:</strong> What if this was how using a computer worked? What if this was what entire open-plan offices did from 9 to 5 every day? <strong>Bonus tip:</strong> Bust out this dance at a party, and it turns into a dance party. It&rsquo;s a .gif <em>and</em> a life hack. <a href=\"\"><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">The Culture Vulture</strong></a> <img alt=\"UO6SNwM\" title=\"portrait lighting\" src=\"\" /> <strong>Why it&rsquo;s amazing:</strong> It&rsquo;s a genuine lesson in how lighting works in portraits&mdash;very useful for insightful critiques at art museums. Or selfie museums. <strong>Bonus tip:</strong> Stared at for long enough, this .gif functions as an all-natural and all-legal high. <a href=\"\"><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">The Sports Buff</strong></a> <img alt=\"giphy\" title=\"pool dunk\" src=\"\" /> <strong>Why it&rsquo;s amazing:</strong> It&rsquo;s an alley-alley-alley-alley-alley-alley-alley-alley-oop. It&rsquo;s such a rare feat that <em>no style rules exist</em> about whether that&rsquo;s hyphenated or not. <strong>Bonus tip:</strong> If you&rsquo;re hungry for more after this .gif, rest assured that &ldquo;complex basketball tricks in pools&rdquo; is now its own subgenre. <a href=\"\">Here&rsquo;s an eight-minute video to tide you over</a>. <a href=\"\"><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">The Foodie</strong></a> <img alt=\"giphy\" title=\"burger\" src=\"\" /> <strong>Why it&rsquo;s amazing:</strong> That burger is taller than most adults, and has all the best toppings: roasted tomatoes, whole-grain mustard, and bacon (?). <strong>Bonus tip:</strong> The tiny onions on the burger are most likely ramps, and their use was once hotly contested in the foodie world. <a href=\";\">Start going down that rabbit hole of culinary politics here</a>.</p>\n<hr />\n<p><strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">Oh, you weren't looking for .gifs?
