The duffel coat is a garment that deserves a whole file with different shapes and colours. It shall have its glory in due time. For now, I’ll just be taking samples. This was number 1.

I went to see my friend’s masters degree presentation. During the debate I had enough time to look at every single person in the room with me. I thought this gentleman had something special. When I approached him he just asked me to be careful about what I would write. I assured him I would just make one or two statements about the same reasons why I took photos of people, which would always have to be a flattering comment. He nodded with this smile.

In The Gentlemen, Bernhard Roetzel states the three distinguished advantages of the cardigan compared to the sweater. “It can be opened, thus, regulating the temperature, it can be dressed and undressed without damaging the hairdressing or taking off the glasses, and usually there’s a small pocket for cigarettes, keys and change.” When I was a child I thought this garment was destined only for old people. Today, with less hair to comb, I can understand its versatility. H&M and PG seem to agree. It’s easy to find them in wool or cotton, one colour, stripes or diamonds.
