Needless to say, the day I walked out of the apartment and realized that it was cool enough that I could pull out 'the jacket' was a good day. Quite happily, he visited the open air a couple days ago, and it just feels so good to get him back. I'm looking forward to the leather trenchcoat coming out of storage, too..but this is THE JACKET.
I've had this leather jacket for a good 5 years...it was a replacement for the cheaper one that got semi-destroyed. It's so nicely broken in, and just feels SO good to get back into...like a lover's embrace, like a second skin. No, it's not quiet, what with the chain, padlocks, buckles, and chaos star zipper pull. Anyone that picks it up always goes 'Damn, that's heavy', but it feels right to me. And it's leather, so it has that wonderful leather smell.
Ah...Chaos is very happy. All hail the coming of the cold.
