I just returned home from Shelton Clothiers, where I purchased two limited-edition Pink Pig fleece zip-up jackets.
The jackets are available in Tiger blue, cream, and (not pictured) charcoal. Tom says they’ve been very popular and he plans on reordering soon. “There are a ton of colors so I’ll probably order different ones each time,” he said. “I may reorder the blue because of the Tigers.”
They are medium-weight, and probably could be worn down to about 40-45 over a shirt and provide enough warmth. If I wore one of my windbreaker shirts underneath them I could probably even go as low as 35.
They are selling FAST so if you want one, I suggest getting by the store early tomorrow. They’re $75 each, but until the end of October Shelton is running a buy one, get one half off promotion for which the fleeces are eligible.
Time to change into my 1920s gangster costume and hit the Blind Bear for their Halloween party. I’ll probably get there before 9. Of course, it goes without saying that I’ll pre-game at the Saucer for a few beers. Come on out to the Bear and party ’20s style!
