the Reid

from 450.00

The "Reid" Jacket is made in Philadelphia, USA. It features double-breasted lapels.  Made of 100% linen, with a wax-print cotton lining.

We provide two construction methods for our sportcoats:
Structured  - Constructed with a single piece canvas to provide clean lines and prolonged durability. The structured jacket is fully lined with hand finishing on the sleeve heads and collar.

Unstructured - A light, form-fitting shell with lined sleeves. The unstructured jackets have the same slim fit as the structured jackets with increased breath-ability and a weightless feel.

Because it is made to order, this item is exchange-only and not refundable.

Another Day in the Village.

"I woke to a different sort of wailing that morning.  After several weeks of being startled to consciousness by the intrusive screeching of errant farm animals stumbling into my hut before dawn like drunken university students on their first term away from home, I was awakened by an alarm that was unsuspected, but not unfamiliar, to this village's collective ears: the sound of a weeping mother who was suddenly becoming accustomed to the idea of living without hope.  Resolving to find out whose child had come to a predictable but premature end, I rose from my mat and put on my Evan coat before stepping into the twilight.

The crowd had encircled the wreckage that used to be Adimu's hut.  Disembodied voices intermittently called out from the darkened ruin that had housed a family of three wives, a dozen children and a menagerie of four legged beasts that would occasionally invite themselves-in.  Above them all, his wife Fatima could be heard asking the caved-in ceiling above her what they had done for God or the Americans to punish them so.

Like a plague from heaven; or torrential brimstone from the Old Testament; scores of packages marked with a red cross and the word "AID" had laid waste of biblical proportions to Adimu's farm and compound. 

Earlier, and thousands of miles across the ocean, a group of proud soccer moms had rallied for "Donations to Save Africa".  Previously, and hundreds of miles above the village, a pilot had miscalculated the deployment point of his air-drop.  Later, and tens of miles away from here, someone would continue struggling to live without clean-water.  Tomorrow, the morning sun would find Adimu crawling from from his battered hut to salvage what crops he could from beneath the meteor-like barrage of used XXL T-shirts that had charitably fallen from the sky."
