Style-Diet Shot – Sean Montreal policeman’s coat

“On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”

– Thomas Jefferson

Coats are often the easiest thing to buy second-hand. Well-made, a coat can last generations. Here is Sean in a coat made for Montreal Police in the late 60s early 70s. It has a clip near the right breast which was meant for a badge. Montreal Police coats used to be made out of Horse Leather. Sean’s horse hide coat is heavy and durable and has sheep skin at the collar. I cannot endorse leather or fur for reasons of compassion. However, it would be a shame not to re-purpose clothes made back when it was the norm to use animals. Sean’s footwear are genuine motorcycle boots worn over the jeans.

The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
