I rarely don the spiked helmet and navy blues of the Fashion Police. After all, I’m hardly a clothes horse, and I’m generally ignorant of trend. That said, I’m moved to point out a small but easily fixed faux pas that I’ve repeatedly observed around Vancouver: the cuff label.
Fall is well upon us, and men are buying new jackets. Many of these jackets (such as this one) are made of heavy, natural fabrics like wool and go over the hip. Does anybody know the correct term for this type of coat?
These jackets often have the makers’ label stitched loosely near the cuff of the left arm (I’m guessing, that it’s probably to make them easier to locate in a rack). The label is only attached loosely because it’s meant to be removed as soon as you get it home. Yet if I wander around downtown Vancouver for any length of time, I’ll spot a jacket forearm complete with label. Men of Canada, remove your labels.
