More words: Soia Kyo is a Canadian company, headquartered in Montreal, I believe, and it does not get more stylish than Montreal around these parts. It would sort of be my national duty to buy this jacket. I would probably get some kind of award from the PM if I bought this jacket (well, not from our current PM who would tell me to “just shut the F@#! up”).
How I would wear it: At a bar. In a car. With a guitar. (These options are inspired by Blondie. And Dr Seuss.) It would be very cool to-and-from outerwear for the fall and the spring. Plus I have a beautiful flame-coloured fringed scarf I bought from a street vendor in Barcelona that would be amazing with this.
Reasons to hesitate: I live in Monsoonville and I don’t think sleek leather jackets wear all too well when they are constantly getting rained on. Some leather jackets look great when they are worn in (I had one in high school. I wore a cut-off denim vest over top of it and I accessorized the denim vest with a Blue Oyster Cult pin. OMG, where did you go, Bad A$$ self?) but I think this is too tailored to wear weather well.
Plus I can’t decide which colour I like better. I’m leaning toward the black because I think it would make me look more like Emma Peel, which is important. Hypothetically.
Someone forgot to wear pants over her bloomers. How embarrassing.
Soia Kyo is not compensating me for not buying this jacket.
Should I not buy this jacket in black? Or should I not buy it in brown?
