Wooden pocket squares: The new must-have men’s accessory

If you know me well, you know I’m a classic guy through and through. So when the gents at Baffi Collection reached out to me to test drive their svelte wooden pocket squares, I was excited yet admittedly reserved. Can a wooden square really force the early retirement of a silk number? Though they are competing for that coveted slot in your breast pocket, it’s best to think of them as complimentary. Let me tell why.

Build quality
Right off the bat, Baffi squares are awesome. No doubt about it. Sourced from top quality wood and hand-crafted right here in Canada, these wooden accessories are functional, yet stylish. So you can be assured that your coin is being well spent.

Ease of use
Even better, they’re dead simple to use. Just stick the wooden card in your breast pocket, then attach the slim magnet on the inside and poof! Like magic, it holds in place. If you’re a no-hassle kind a guy, yet still like to get dapper, Baffi squares are for you.

The compliment factor
Let’s be honest here, if it doesn’t get a compliment…erm may as well just tuck it away. No worries here though, as Baffi squares are statement pieces. Reactions ranged from “Is that wood in your pocket?” to “that’s such a smart idea, where can I get one?” Some of the squares are even reversible, so midway through your event you could even switch things up and really turn some heads.

Final impressions
If you’ve stuck with me since the beginning, you probably want to know if wooden squares will be replacing your silk squares anytime soon. Short answer? No, they won’t as I believe silk will always be the go-to for most gents. That said, I was pleasantly surprised at how professional wood looks. It can be dressed up, or down, it’s really up to you.

If you’re more daring, Baffi has louder creations to really draw attention. If you’re more conservative, it’s equally as easy to pick up a more simple design that’ll look right at home in a boardroom. Not just novelty item, Baffi wooden squares can be a staple in every man’s closet. Learn more about them here, and use promo code, promoottawa2015 to get the hook up!
