Got cheapos, perhaps from Shanghai? http://cgi.ebay.com/Giftbox-3-Mens-P...item3a5ed51e8e And Irish imports, handstitched http://cgi.ebay.com/Giftbox-3-Mens-I...item3cb072a8a1 Is it worth paying more? I'm not going to bother with the RLPL ones that increaseth the cost further. I only ask because so far everything on ebay unless it is a solid brand name, appears to be suck-a-roni, so i dont want to play the 'save money now, throw away junk, then spend more later to get what you could have gotten earlier"

Its a small white square of fabric, that is barely visible when worn and durability doesn't matter because its not like its going to get beat up sitting in your pocket. If you want to pay more so its hand stitched and made of nicer fabric then do so, but it won't really make any difference in appearance or longevity.

I paid $55 for my current. It's purple label Irish linen.

It soaks up blood very well and is machine washable.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
