JACKET #5 – GIMME A SWAN DIVE
This jacket has the tendency to stir up a lot of trouble. The first time I wore it out, drunken people wouldn’t stop following me around and asking to try it on. One difficult person in particular, at 111 Minna in San Francisco, went so far as to take it out of my bag without asking, so he could dance in it. A couple people have offered to buy it off my back, and for good reason: it’s rad vintage Speedo from the 80’s and ones like these are becoming increasingly rare, so of course I’m not selling. Plus I like to wear this one when I travel, since it is warm and cozy (cotton but lined in mesh).
