"fogle" Definition

  1. a silk handkerchief,—not a clout, which is of cotton. It has been hinted that this may have come from the German _Vogel_, a bird, from the bird’s-eye spots on some handkerchiefs, but a more probable derivation is the Italian slang (_Fourbesque_), FOGLIA, a pocket, or purse; or from the French Argot, FOUILLE, also a pocket.
