Pinning a handkerchief to transport it


One may not transport a cloth or handkerchief to one's clothing in order to be able to transport it on Shabbos in an area where there is no eruv. Granted that it is considered halachically attached to the garment, it is neither a garment nor an ornament in itself. Even if the cloth is intended for a mitzvah, this is prohibited.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:48)

Have a great day,
