The HANK revives a classic men accessory
Oct '11
Marlton, New Jersey, September 2011 Colleen Corcoran, the designer of Happy Hanky, announces the launch of the HANK, a handkerchief line for gentleman. The HANK is representative of a time when men were men and chivalry was alive & well. The man that carries the HANK is both modern, masculine and would make their grandfathers proud!

A handkerchief is a pocket staple and practical accessory for every man. The HANK can be used to wipe a forehead on a hot day (or fist-pumping up a storm at the club), to wipe a runny nose during cold season, to wrap up a snack for the road, to protect something fragile in your pocket, as an emergency tourniquet and a clean handkerchief can be offered to a lady to wipe her tears during a sad movie!

Colleen uses fresh, vintage-inspired cotton prints to give the line a retro feel.

Colleen Corcoran has worked in the Visual Merchandising and Marketing industry for ten years. In addition to being a passionate handkerchief entrepreneur, Colleen loves antiquing, scoping out good food finds with her husband and reading to her eleven month old son.
