This is a quote by Allan Fusser. Sounds so true, does it not? Well, women do carry handkerchiefs, but what about men? Do they? Let’s unravel the mystery.
Taking up from the point I just pointed out, men are indeed shy to carry a handkerchief even when they have a blocked nose or a nose that promises to run a water supply facility 24/7. However, they fail to understand that this very unappealing tendency is doing a fantastic job of letting them down every time they strut around looking out for tissues in the vicinity. The scenario turns all the more anecdotal when the sneeze is about to prove its intensity. Well, to deviate on a serious note, maintaining hygiene is of paramount importance, in an age that marks the birth of novel diseases and ailments that are making their way up the ladder to prove their potency.

Fashion Faux Pas!
There is an old saying “He’s a belt and suspenders kind of guy” meaning a man is so paranoid that his pants will come down that he wears both which is a carnal fashion blunder. Never wear a belt with suspenders, and ask your tailor to remove the belt loops if you wish to wear suspenders as a fashion statement.
