I have missed the boat multiple times on getting a cargo jacket. Is it even called a cargo jacket? Perhaps you might called it a utility jacket in army green, perhaps it’s a khaki shirt. I don’t know the exact term for this item of clothing, which is perhaps why it’s so tricky to find.
Anyway, I can’t find the one I want. Becky B has a great one that she picked up in a flea market in LA. Fucking typical. Something tells me that I ought to just get on the C2 bus from my house to Camden Town and have a poke around the market for one – the spiritual and literal home, surely, of the army khaki green cargo utility shirt jacket? And I will, I absolutely will, when I get a sec.
Meanwhile, I saw this pale imitation of what I want in Forever 21. But my dad always says “There’s no point in not having the thing that you want,” which means “Don’t buy sort of the thing you want, buy the thing that you want. Unless you can’t afford it. In which case, forget it.”
Even this Saint Laurent jobby off Net a Porter (£900) isn’t really what I’m looking for.
I’m channelling this girl. Are you with me? Are you with me, or against me?
