The Hill-Side Chambray Handkerchief Bandana | One Year

March 27, 2011

I’ve now had this Hill-Side Handkerchief as my faithful back pocket companion for one year. It joins me most days and has served many uses in the past year. From wiping my brow to cleaning my glasses, the selvedge chambray banana has played a relevant role in my every day carry and anytime I forget it at home I have that odd sensation that something is missing from my pockets all day long.

It seems to be getting better with age, as the folds are ingrained in the cloth to the point of no turning back and it shows many marks of sharing space with raw denim along the way. It truly has become a routine to have it in my possession and I’ll have to grieve a little when I put it out to pasture. Though my pops went with the old standby bandana paisley pattern for his kerchief of choice, The Hill-Side has served me well and from the looks of it, will continue the journey with me for quite some time.

    Are these too rough to see to one’s nose with? Or are they more for things like you mentioned: cleaning glasses, wiping brow, etc?

      I typically don’t use mine for blowing my nose as the idea of having a snotty handkerchief I have to place back in my pocket has always seemed odd to me when Kleenex are so readily available.

      That being said, I’m sure that if you were in a pinch, this bandana would work just fine for such a moment. Keep in mind, though I wouldn’t call it rough, it isn’t necessarily soft to the touch, as it seems thicker than the classic paisley handkerchief.
