The Wax-Coated All-Weather Jacket
In or Out.
At his farmhouse in Maine, prolific writer E.B. White put a basket on his desk. It forced him to decide if this was the IN basket, for incoming messages, or the OUT basket. He used it as both. Didn’t work. He determined that 90% of things were incoming. The basket would be IN.
This is the case with most things. They are one or the other.
Not this jacket.
The idea was to create an all-weather jacket, the kind that could power through the unpredictability of travel, your general day to day, or, say, an hour in Kathmandu where it goes from balmy, dust bowl day, to chilly monsoon evening, to sit-down dinner at the Dwarika’s Hotel.
Could this all be done in one jacket?
Could you wear this with a tie at dinner?
Could you really be this undeniably in and out?
Enjoy having all the answers.
