“Yes!” Jim Fresdeeno yelled to himself as the season’s initial cool air gently tossed his well-combed coif, realizing that the month-and-a-half window to wear the green jacket was upon him. The jacket, which features no insulation or tailoring, of course carries with it a price tag that could buy several versions of a less completely ridiculous jacket. According to Fresdeeno, though, the hefty investment is absolutely worthwhile: “it’s more the idea of the jacket than the jacket itself.” Fresdeeno had not been punched in the face at the time of this writing. –Emerson Scheinuk & Ford Carson
