Chevron Quilted Vest
Do you ever wonder what happened to the man you saw pumping gas into his 1964 Scout? Enveloped in flurries. Williwaw-like winds caused the mortals to retreat indoors.
He did neither; he wasn’t even wearing a jacket, just cargo pants and a quilted vest over an ivory wool turtleneck. Two Ridgebacks sat in silence in the back seat.
The immediate impression was the vest—thick and quilted, purposeful. The chevron stitching, button loops, and angled pocket reminded you that practicality, when smartly conceived and well-executed, was incredibly appealing to the eye. “Looks” were probably the last thing on his mind. He had the vest because it served him well in weather like this.
The Scout roared off into the wintery mix. There he goes, you said out loud to no one in particular.
It’s funny what sticks with you.
