How To Pin A Boutonniere In 3 Steps

Step 1: Position The Boutonniere In On The Left Lapel (remember to do the Ls)

The boutonniere should be placed on top of the lapel and on the left side. The boutonniere is typically placed lower than the tie, but above the pocket square.

Step 2: Lift The Lapel And insert The Pin Through The Thickest Part Of The Stem

Sticking it through the thickest part ensures the boutonniere is secure. Also, you want to angle the pin away from the chest

Step 3: Push The Pin Upwards At A Slight Angle And Back Through The Lapel.

Both ends of the pin should be behind the lapel.

And that’s it! The boutonniere is attached.
