I know, I know. Connor and I entered a “Who Wore it Better?” contest and I LOST BY A WIDE MARGIN.
This post not only settles that score, but it also settles the “what is the world’s most versatile garment?” argument. You may say “what argument?” To which I say: “This is the internet. There are arguments wherever you choose to find them. What a time to be alive!”
And so, I’d like to publicly declare the jean jacket as the World’s Most Versatile-and-Consistently-Age-Appropriate Garment. I challenge you to find any other item that would look as good on a 28 year old and a 3-month old. I’m telling you right now, I have a pair of onesie pajamas, and the site of me as a giant teletubby would haunt your dreams forever.
Just last friday, when catching up with my sister Robyn, she mentioned that her eldest is now a total grown-up because she requested a jean jacket all on her own. She too ended up with a thrifted Gap jacket like mine – way to go, niece!
So there you have it. One argument settled on the internet, one bajillion to go.
