Ah. I always wanted one of these…

IMG_0575
When I was Mr. Suburban Man I really couldn’t justify the expense. The house and wife and kid and 2.5 shiny cars are expensive. When I chucked it all and became a cedar rat I could have justified the expense but I just flat didn’t have the money. This was last year’s Christmas present from a generous reader and I must say, having just come back from an hour on a freezing, windswept mountaintop with my fingers numb and my nose tingling but my torso warm as toast, I Love This Coat.

In fact – speaking of Mr. Suburban Man – the only thing I don’t like about it is that it’s black and shows all the barnyard dust. And if that’s the worst problem I have today, I am a man without significant problems. :)

    That is a very nice coat you have there and one of these days I might just get myself one. BTW what you call “barnyard dust” is something you should think of as man glitter. Barnyard dust is the sign of a working man.

    I am on my second coat of that type. The first was tan and, although I still have it, it’s pretty much a shredded dog bed. Welding and mechanicing will do that. The newer one is a kind of grey/green and I’m really trying to keep it town worthy.

    As to the Trump business, maybe they will all drown in the swamp. As long as they are at each other’s throats, they are too nusu to bother with me.

    Yeah, there’s things I won’t do in this one. In fact I kept my old chore coat, which I *think* got dissolved by exposure to battery acid, strictly for servicing batteries in winter. Won’t go near batteries in my new cotton coat. :)

    Love those Carhartts, I wish my chore coat had a hood on it. When it is cold and rainy, I miss the hood a lot. Nothing like cold rain in your hair that chills you out further.

  5. Joel says:

    Yeah, I’m not out in the rain very often but I like a hood in the wind. This one didn’t come with a hood but it had those four snaps under the collar, which are compatible with all the hoods Carhartt makes. So it’s sort of modular.

To the stake with the heretic!
