Outerwear - coats and jackets, hats scarves, whatever ...

in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

Some ugly looking winter wear out here. I really hate the puffed up camouflage-print parkas that make ordinary joes look like they're Marines out hunting Santa Bin Ladin. Leave that hunting gear in the woods. I like the simple, black or charcoal, long woolen coats that President Eisenhower wore. With jeans and cowboy boots or sneakers they still look kind of baddass. I have this 15 year old black lamb's leather coat. It zips up all the way to my chin and has lots of inside pockets in case I need to do some shoplifting. Best of all it fits. What bothers me about my coat is its label, Calvin Klein, and if it wasn't on sale at the Burlington Coat Factory I would never buy a Calvin Klein anything.
