So would someone from Massdrop please explain the outrageous "late order" fee that is being deducted from Minh? Doesn't seem like it's conducive to having a good relationship with an obviously popular maker

Just got mine today and they are amazing! Just like the previous drops these handkerchiefs are masterful. I now own about 20 of these and with the exception of the one my puppy ate they have all held up to daily use. I cannot recommend these enough. I can't wait for the next collection!
Wow. I don't know if this is Massdrop or that Minh Do is just [more] awesome-er than most other Massdrop vendors (looks like these are drop-shipped, since it came from the Philly area), but my "hank" is scheduled for delivery tomorrow (according to USPS). That means it will show up almost a week before the estimated ship date.
Amazing. I'll let you know what I think of it when I have it in hand.

So how's that hank workin' out for ya?
Oh haha, sorry for forgetting to get back to everyone.
I love it!  I can't compare it to any other products because I've never owned any hankerchiefs before this one, but it feels extremely well-made.  The embroidery is  absolutely beautiful, with the proper stitch types being used for the design elements and artwork under consideration (this I AM an expert of sorts on, as I used to design artwork for use on commercial automated 15-color embroidery machines, and making sure you use the right stitch types, lengths, and underlay for fills, borders, or 3D elements is as important a consideration as the design itself), not to mention the beauty of the design. I can't imagine the amount of work it takes to do these by hand, but looking at the stitching I notice patterns in the fill stitches that give the design a life that would be hard to duplicate on an embroidery machine... not without programming the design stitch by stitch. No one using a machine ever puts that amount of time into a design (heck, even the single-head machines start at over $4k used, so you can't sit around with the machine waiting for your stitch-by-stitch design), so it really makes me feel like I have a special bit of art in my pocket.
There is one nagging issue, and that is that I can't find a good way to fold it because of where the design is. If it had been at bottom-center or nestled in one of the corners it would have been perfect. Luckily, not being a formalwear kind of guy, it hasn't been a problem. I generally keep in in my man-purse (actually, it's a tablet bag that I have repurposed for use as my diabetes "kit", where I keep my blood glucose tester, insulin, and other related items), which I have to have with me at all times. This could be a problem for others, though.
TL;DR: Wonderful as hank, lovely as art, one nagging issue as formalwear accessory.

Ok. So I do like my hank a lot. And I know it is getting better with time. BUT ONE THING The design pattern for my dragon is completely off center in the corner. If you have ever folded hanks for your back pocket, you'll know what I mean.
This hank isn't long enough in one direction for rectangle or square folding properly, it requires a diagonal fold. No matter what, the patterns are incorrect when stitched on. They should be centered in the corner either diagonally or straight on.
Now, I don't know fashion design in this respect, but I do know that every hank I ever owned that had something in the corner, allowed me to easily fold it in either style and display it.
Here is a picture.

As a follow up, how is it that Massdrop can send me an email every single day but fail to alert me to a drop I have participated in the last five times its been posted? Luckily I found it while browsing. If there is a Summer or another fall collection I better not miss out!

After getting it. I went online and searched for other hanks. I will start collecting them. Currently at 120 T-Shirts. So this shouldn't take too long. LOL
