If you have enough cloth I'd go with a matching tie.  Local tailor already doing matching masks. Not for me ;)

 . . .but millions of people are dying and you can catch pangolin flu from a counter or your mates or your relatives. . .

We have an old saying here, in the US: "If you don't like wearing a Mask, you're going to really hate the Ventilator" ;)

 We have an old saying in Scotland , ' Learn to use your own mind before someone else uses it for you and it won't be for your benefit' ;)

No prob, Simon. I already adhere to that. ;) Nobody thinks for me, but me...

Brilliant Mike , you will have worked out then that there is no scientific validity to a mask offering any protection from a 'virus'
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

I thought about masks, but unsure as in my location and situation, not sure how practical thought would be (and since when I do go out it's to bars and then I don't wear a mask as I am too busy swilling liquor), the pocket square as mentioned was a non-starter, but maybe a handkerchief that I could keep inside my coat? I like the tie idea, but not enough material (even though the shirt-maker from Italian Job had a good look in my opinion). I suppose I could store it away in the even of the collar or cuffs starting to fray.

By the time they start to fray Brian, you'll probably be ready to "donate" the shirt or toss it...

Just the opposite. Free Thinking doesn't mean ignoring facts and science...

Well , that is a matter of opinion.  When it comes to my personal  health l like to delve in and do my research thoroughly,  and as far as l can find there is NO scientific evidence to back up a cloth mask saving you from anything apart from some dust maybe . Personally,  l don't believe in conspiracy theories nor do l believe everything  lame stream media cares to say as gospel.  This is the longest , l have ever known anything from China to last. The truth is out there. .

I totally agree, I don't see what the big problem is with them anyway tbh, if they work then great if the effect is minimal its hardly a big inconvenience.

I have to rely on glasses more and more,GS. Just slide them a tiny bit down your nose. You'll be fine.

The problem is they are likely to do more harm than good , breathing in your own CO2 to name but one negative effect , oh aye , and being totally ineffective against a virus .
The current 'crisis' is full of fake science   . Don't take my word for it though go check it oot .

That's what I usually do, my friend. Still there are moments in the street, when not even a slight breeze blows, that I literally can't see my way ahead  ;D
