One of my favorite fashion pieces to rock is the handkerchief. It started when my hair was longer (naturally curly, sometimes unruly) and served as a quick fix when I didn't have time to properly style. Usually a standard blue/white paisley, but sometimes a green camo, the chief soon became part of the bad ass look I edge. Recently, my friends and I came across an extensive list for the hankie-code that has long served as a tool with different color handkerchiefs in different locations denoting preferences and interests. Of course I have incorporated these colorful chiefs with my M.I.A. chief to make my own statement instead of wearing in back jean pockets. The easiest way is my traditionally on-top-of-the-head (as shown below), but also tie around my ankle in skinny jeans and converses or folded as band and tied around my bicep or head (as sweat band). It's a great way for guys to add some color and style in a hard tone with some street sensibility.



How to fold:


1. Lay chief in front of you with diamond orientation.
2. Flip over.
3. Fold bottom corner up good 9"-11" (but not all of way in half).
4. Flip right side back.
5. Align with center of forehead just above eye brows.
6. Pull left and right corners tight and tie behind head.
7. Pull top corner all of the way down over first knot (in step 6).
8. Tie left and right corners again over top corner.
