A Gentleman Always Has A Clean Handkerchief On His Person: Where Is Your Chivalry? - by A.B.King

   How do you do? All is well, I trust?
   I'm honored you've decided to grace my humble article with a few minutes of your time. What you are about to learn would bless you for a lifetime.
   A Gentleman must always carry a clean handkerchief.
   I personally carry a small blue or plain white handkerchief - sized towel (for lack of a better way to describe it), in the outer right hand side pocket of my suit everywhere I go,
   I find it more effective than a handkerchief   in my case. I can't in good conscience say that I sweat a lot. However, I have found myself with a damp handkerchief on extremely busy and sunny days; and that would hardly do to keep my face dry.
   I find it's better to be prepared than to find oneself in an undesirable situation, so I personally don't use a handkerchief. I use my beautiful little handkerchief - sized towel.
   And No! It's not conspicuous. You won't notice it's not a handkerchief unless you touch it. Only then you'll notice it's way too thick and the way it feels reminds you of a towel.
   In any case, for everybody else who finds that a handkerchief would do the job for them, then I recommend that they use a real handkerchief.
   Apart from always carrying a handkerchief for the obvious purpose, there is another obvious purpose that is only obvious to every gentleman: A Gentleman Should Have A Clean Handkerchief To Offer To A Lady Should She Need One Even Though She May Have Her Own But It's Not In Plain Sight.
   If a Gentleman is around a Lady that begins to cry, sneeze, vomit, ... etc, a Gentleman must give up his handkerchief or perhaps even sacrifice it forever.
   It is what we must do. It is the way of a Gentleman.
   It is the way of a King.
   Now, if she refuses to accept it, then you must withdraw but indicate either by actions or in words that you are willing and ready to offer assistance in any other way should she allow it.
   I'm sure I also don't need to tell you that you cannot offer a Lady an already used handkerchief. The handkerchief must be clean and dry. The handkerchief must be worthy of the Lady's use. If your handkerchief at that time has already been used by you, then just stick to offering her assistance in any other way possible if allowed.
   Remember Alfredonian Etiquette is not to imprison self expression or individuality but to prevent the destruction of civilization by bringing order to self expression.
