Favorite Leather Piece
Do you have a favorite leather piece? You know what I mean. An item so old and worn out that the poor thing died years ago. It should have been thrown out but you persist on wearing or using it. It is just so perfect. You cannot do without it.
Consider yourself lucky
Consider yourself lucky. Not everyone finds the perfect piece that compleats their identity as it did yours. Oh, so you never thought of it this way? Your identity? Got you! That’s just what happens. You are now as surprised to learn this as I was when I finally figured it out.
So what is my favorite piece
So what is my favorite piece? I have this ancient brown suede jacket. Must be at least 18 years old. Should have been discarded centuries ago. It died and definitely did not go to heaven. I love wearing it.
The collar is very worn. Last year a tear started forming just behind my neck where the collar folds over. It’s become even worse this year. Looks awful. Deep inside I wish to cling to my jacket. Keep it forever. I do not wish to replace it. (So folks, does this belong in True Confessions instead of here?)
Someday my jacket will hit the point where it becomes unwearable. Don’t know what I will do.
I started thinking about this and decided to keep my eyes open for a possible replacement. I will take my time.
P.S. I do own other jackets. I’m just not as emotionally attached to them.
