I suppose the new year lazy has to come to an end, so here’s the first post of 2016 – it’s a jacket, it’s green, it’s available to buy from a US shop that means us Britishists will have to stomach ruthless import duty. And the irony is, it’s made in the UK. Welcome back to dumb-ass clothing decisions.
That said, this is kind of weird. It’s corduroy with a flowery print. I’m making a lazy leap and assuming that the Yarmo manufacturer of the garms is this Yarmo. A vigorously unfashionable looking industrial workwear factory. And according to Union Made the retailer, it’s designed in Japan – hence the interesting fabric I guess. Assuming I’ve got the right Yarmo, I guess that accounts for the low price point too. It’s only a couple of hundred dollars. So like, a ton and a bit in real money.
My girl dislikes this jacket. I mean, she really hates it. I disagree. I think it’s suitably unusual to warrant an investment. I just like the flowers. It reflects my desire to become a softer, more compassionate me in the new year. A me that’s more thoughtful, giving and honest. But not quite honest enough to tell my missus I’ve already ordered it.
