A Nice Vest

For quite a while I have been looking for a nice vest to wear during Eugene's many Cool But Not Cold months. But all the vests I had seen for sale either looked like I had lost a suit coat (no real back) or I was on my way to do hunting or photography (too many pockets).

In January I saw one being worn in the Seattle airport. The fellow wearing it was the owner of an art gallery in Alaska.

He happily shared that he had similar struggles finding a nice vest until his wife discovered the Filson company. Perhaps someday I'll own this vest in brown or charcoal. But probably not; my wife prefers this vest with a collar, also in brown or charcoal, so I expect on my birthday that's what I'll unwrap.
