Cinco de Mayo was supposed to be a night full of margs, chips and salsa, and fiestas galore. Instead, my body decided, “Hey, let’s just not work anymore and resign Will to the couch after work…” It does that from time to time when it thinks it’s being funny. Another story for another time…What I am getting at is before I put the kibosh on the evening’s plans, I forced myself to head to Cherry Creek Mall to take advantage of the 40% off Gap coupon burning a hole in my khakis. With the sole intent of snagging a railroad chambray, which I did, I also scored a Gap Moto Leather Jacket.
I wasn’t going to grab it or the Cropped Trench, but when I saw the reduction on the leather, it was too good not to pass up (see below). Gap’s site isn’t carrying the leather jacket which either means I got the last one, or it’s a past line. The good thing about an item like this though is that it’s timeless. I always hear about leather jackets getting passed down from father to son. My dad was never big into them so I wasn’t afforded the opportunity. Now I have one to give to my son, though. That’s something, right? Right.
Now if I wasn’t incredibly unhappy with the fit of the chambray and if I hadn’t given my motorcycle away so many years ago, the icing could have been applied to the cake.
