NAVY CROMBIE COAT N SILKY SATIN TASSEL SCARF


 


Hi Huns...

Can we have a moment here...


For the mother of all coats, the CROMBIE!...You know i can actually...remember the exact 1st time...I fell in love with the crombie...My dad!...Rest his soul...

Watching my dad get ready to go out on a Friday night after work...He would make a big deal out of getting ready...PROPER POSER!...Whilst mums cooking up a storm in the kitchen...Chicken, rice & peas with salad...Fresh carrot or lime Juice...the WHOLE WORKS!...

My dad would lay out all his clothes and shout out to me...


CHEN!...which is my nick name by the way...Which one shall i wear?!...


He would have a healthy plethora of corduroy trousers..silks shirts plain and printed...silk bomber jackets...Suede coats...My mother really hooked him up...Any best garment my dad owned...My mum was responsible for that...Ooo and my dad love her for it...the apple of his eyes...


He was a very neat and precise person dry cleaners kind guy ONLY!...Would take the time to put all his silks and corduroy in the dry cleaners...I mean...He had swag before swag even existed...The originally article...That's the only way i can describe it...he was on point...


And then the CROMBIE! would come out....It was like AMMMMMEN!...Once he put that coat on...that was it for me...it just ties everything together nicely...The tailoring on that....impeccable and second to none...And that's why i love Crombies...
