The handkerchief was once a central part of any gentleman’s arsenal of personal effects—at the ready to mop a brow or console a distraught stranger. Or in the case of this new set of Wildwood Wisdom handkerchiefs from Barnaby Black: ready to assist you in starting a fire or finding your way out of the woods.

They’re all cotton and a bit more rough-and-tumble than your average pocket square—meaning you can stick one in your breast pocket for the same effect, but it works just as well tucked into the back pocket of your jeans. Consider these the utilitarian entry into our ongoing coverage of summer pocket squares.

Perfect for your next semiformal camping trip.
