Last Chance Dept.
Last year, a man paid a large sum to hunt endangered rhinos in Namibia. Up close, this seemed ill-conceived on many levels. What was not as widely reported (at first) was that the Namibian government sanctions these conservation hunts for the protection of the species. The rhinos targeted are older, non-breeding, aggressive males. The money paid is the most vetted path to actually conserving the species. The meat was distributed to nearby villages. The horn was not sold on the black market.
Whether you agree or not, it wasn’t what it seemed.
Up close this safari jacket seems suited for, well, safari. It’s a sturdy cotton twill. The stone color is quintessential safari (Teddy would approve). The quilted shoulder with light padding is for your rifle. There are ample pockets for rations, gloves and industrial strength insect repellent. The sleeves are convertible and can be rolled up and buttoned when temperatures rise.
It’s the real McCoy but you don’t need to go on safari to enjoy it. My safaris are generally urban in nature. I need pockets for passports, reading glasses and getaway cash. Along the way I try to open my ears to the sides of the story I don’t always hear first.
