Retro Collar

February 22, 2011

This item of clothing has no peer in my wardrobe. No pair of pants or short-shorts has the right shade or cut. I found it in an laneway op-shop in Adelaide and like to think that it once came with matching shorts. It has a strange soft-synthetic fit and comes with a golden triangle attached to the zipper, no doubt with special powers to ward off the big game that roam the African Plains. But until I take up game hunting (never) or find it an equal, it will remain in my wardrobe; or come out on that very special day: washing day, with a mis-matched pair of pants.

I love it. It would be on some Hit and some Miss lists. Polarise, for sure.
