Have you ever come across something so trippy, it played with the depths of your mind? It’s exactly what the structure of this cape/ jacket did to me.

As an avid online shopper, solely for the purpose of avoiding crowds and splurging on impulsive retail purchases, I would definitely consider myself a pro at sifting through hundreds (sometimes even thousands) of items listed on my favourite websites. The process of elimination is a true art form; it requires skill, precision, efficiency, imagination and of course, an eye for detail. My point is that contrary to popular belief, online shopping is a talent in itself- or so I tell myself.

So when I came across this cape like jacket, or jacket like cape- which ever you see fit, I kind of second guessed my imagination skills. How would I even wear this? Is it socially acceptable to confuse people with your clothing? Is it even something worth spending money on?. True to form, I dismissed all my burning life questions and deemed dressing like a caped villain more important than my initial reservations. Priorities, people, priorities.

For those of you still confused about the subject of conversation, it’s really only a jacket with arm holes at the front instead of at the sides. Is it a jacket? Is it a cape? No it’s both; cape from the front, jacket from the back. A bipolar, two-faced piece of material. Genius.
