You have to stop doing that.

Fact is, nice pocket squares are more readily available than nice handkerchiefs. Ergo, I use pocket squares more often.

I use pocket squares for their purpose, but i always have a white or blue handkerchief to offer to the ladies, if needed.
When I have a cold, a handkerchief is neither practical, as it does not last long enough, nor hygienical; in that case I'll carry some paper tissues in my briefcase.

Just remember ... Mr. Amies is the same man who predicted that by now we'd all be wearing five button (suit) coats.

Have you looked at Men's Warehouse's offerings lately?

One does it so you're not blowing it onto the back of your hand and wiping it on the nearest bit of upholstery.

If you do it right, you never touch the snot again and it never touches anything but the inside of the handkerchief. And all of the germs you blow out are ones you already have kicking around in you, so the 'unsanitary' charge is a no go.

Are people really so far away from a bathroom that they need to resort to this? I cannot think of the last time I was wearing a suit and more than 3 minutes from a bathroom.
