I love the advertising copy for this jacket:
â€œEven in these days of Business Casual, there are times â€“ like dealing with the Suits at the bank or introducing yourself to a new client â€“ when a sports jacket adds a touch of professionalism. Thus, we developed the Duluth Presentation Jacket, designed to go with jeans or khakis and requiring no special care.â€
Of course, I wouldnâ€™t be looking at this menâ€™s jacket if it hadnâ€™t been recommended by a gadget freak. What he had to say was far more interesting:
â€œIn the last month, I have worn it everywhere from going to the movies to staying two days in a swanky hotel in Morocco for business meetings, hiked part way up an 11,000 ft mountain, and slept on a long flight. As this implies, it is a dreamy travelerâ€™s jacket â€” never looks wrinkled (it is treated to resist wrinkles and stains), is tremendously comfortable, and has 13 pockets including zip-up pockets inside the outer patch pockets. Enough space to fit a moleskine in an outer pocket, a cell phone inside, a wallet safely zipped-in, some pens â€” and suddenly I donâ€™t have to carry a backpack when I am going out for a quick meeting.â€
Thatâ€™s the sort of recommendation I can love. Iâ€™m tempted to buy one for myself, except that I promised myself to stop cross-dressing. If youâ€™re a guy in need of a jacket that can take you from the mountain to the board room, the Duluth Twill Presentation Jacket just might do the trick.
