Metro Coats for the Ski Slopes

You’ve probably noticed the latest fad in winter outerwear: the puffy coat. It was ugly in the 70’s, but in this newer version, they’ve managed to make it even more revolting.

There are varying degrees of puffiness, but I’ll just pick on the skinny puffy coat that is seen so frequently at ski areas and generally active sports gatherings. Consisting of horizontal narrow rows of insulation, ala the old down coats with wider bands, this latest version offers a tighter fitting model that removes any semblance of masculinity from the wearer. Combined with the garish colors that are so de riguer, I’m surprised that they’re selling outside of the metro area. But trend sucking knows no boundaries, and today’s hip dweebs will grab on to anything without the slightest thought of whether or not it actually looks decent.

The heinous crap that you see above goes for the ridiculous price of ~$250, but that’s a bargain for this myrmidon.

“And after noticing friends wear theirs to the bar, on the hill, in the grocery store, I had seen just how versatile this particular micro-puff was. It was still a chunk of
cash—the equivalent of 12 hours of work at my day job, or a busy night waiting tables at job number two. But I clicked “Add to Cart” and pulled out the plastic.”

Whatever it takes to follow the herd!
