The Pea Coat

Style-in-film-Robert-Redford-in-Three-Days-Of-The-Condor-1yesterday i was at mickey’s surplus again (3rd time in two weeks!), just browsing at the usual stuff: boots, socks, and camping gear. it always feels like i’m back at shank’s in joplin. the weather has warmed up, but i know we might have a few cold snaps coming, so i was looking at jackets. i found a pea coat that looked just like the one robert redford wore in three days of the condor. i bought it. i haven’t worn lapels this big since my mom made shirts for me in oklahoma!

  1. I’ll always remember when you told me your shopping philosophy, “I don’t interest myself in “why”. I think more often in terms of “when”, sometimes “where”; always “how much”.

  2. I don’t know about big lapels, but I still have that super long bogey trench coat you gave me ages ago. I’m gonna need to clean it again soon to keep it in good shape.

  3. I can’t remember if it was jr. or high school when your first interest peeked for army surplus paraphernalia, but I do believe we talked about you being a “trend setter.” was it Morris the Cat that was also a trend setter?

    • it was high school. that’s when i bought my first pair of cargo pants. i don’t remember morris being a trend setter, i just remember him being finicky!
