Ed Henry’s Secret Passion: Pocket Squares

Here’s something you may not know about Fox News Channel’s chief White House correspondent, Ed Henry: he loves pocket squares. (So much that they even have their own Twitter account.) The AP’s Samantha Critchell examines the origins of Henry’s fashion statement:

Blue ones, red ones, white ones. He’ll wear red-meets-blue purple, too, but don’t read too much into any political meaning, he says.

It all started as a friendly fashion competition with Ali Velshi, a former colleague when Henry was at CNN. It was all about the bigger, better necktie back then. There was an unending game of one-upmanship with more colorful shirts, perhaps even a patterned vest.

Still, Henry says, Velshi usually out did him — until Henry pulled out the pocket square. “The pocket square amps it up!” says Henry. He adds: “At least no one is teasing me about my makeup anymore.”
