In the spirit of the Whiteman Brother’s short film a day for the month of February, and my cousin’s photo-a-day for a year project that recently ended, today I begin “March of Coats,” where I wear a different coat or sports jacket every day this month. I’ve been talking about a month of coats since December but the name “March of Coats” sounded so fitting that I decided to wait. It’s not entirely inspired by the previous two examples, but I do feel obligated to tip my hat to the something-a-day tendencies of my friends. Relatively my commitment is pretty low, especially compared to the Whiteman Brothers, all I have to do is wear something. Something awesome at that. I have 12 or so jackets so I will be borrowing a lot of them coats this month – thanks Joe for letting me borrow this coat to get the month started. Also, I’m going to apologize now for the constant stream of pictures of me – it seems somewhat vain now that I’m in the moment of actually documenting the March of Coats but it isn’t going to stop me.
Confused? Read this.
Honestly not a huge fan of this photo but it’s the best of what I’ve got.
Since I’m wearing Davey’s tuxedo jacket today I thought I’d honor him by gratuitously smoking in this one.
Looking at the last few days I feel like I’ve been trying too hard and I thought, hey, that’s not the real me, not with all these glamorous coat-month photo shoots with unnecessary cigarettes, pink fluff and sunglasses. So here it is, me doing laundry, just being real with a sport coat on. Special thanks to Patrick for letting me borrow his black corduroy blazer on this fine March 6th 2008.
