The Shell Game
If you happen to be reading this somewhere in the Northeast, you’re probably familiar with the following sartorial conundrum:
It’s gross out. From the moment you step outside, you’re battered by winds, snow, and unidentifiable flecks of water from all angles. But strangely enough, it’s not actually that cold.
But by some miracle of happenstance, the perfect garment for this situation seems to have arrived in Brooklyn at the same time as the blizzard. This Mackintosh shell, dubbed the New Kennedy, should be familiar to Barbour aficionados, but with two important updates: a thorough embrace of the pouchy pocket and an icy blue color (colour?) to complement the surroundings.
Stay dry, everyone.
