As I transition to making more and more of my own clothing, the clothes I do buy get fewer and far between (except for sneakers of course). One of the last articles of clothing I did buy (and absolutely loved), was a down Burton vest (thanks Mirae). Meant normally to be a snowboarding layer, I wore this thing everyday and with everything. Unfortunately as the season started to shift, I left it behind on a barstool one night.
When I decided to replace the vest with my own, the first thing I wanted to do was be able to make the collar removable. I layered my previous vest with everything and found the collar to get in the way sometimes. Though versatile and wearable in a number of different ways, the final vest has 3 foundational ways to rock it: collar up, collar down or collar off.
“Sanpi” in Japanese is the slang term for threesome. I know, real mature…
