I was mooching around the shops in Waterford over the weekend and felt the years falling off me when I spotted a rail of duffle coats or should I say jackets?
As a teenager, I more or less lived in a dark navy duffle coat and, from conversations with both men and women, I gather almost everyone has had a coat which was extra-special to them. It seems to be less about fashion and style than the emotional state/s associated with that one coat which invariably leaves an indelible mark on a life.
Here I am in the precious duffle coat walking on lovely Baltray Beach in Co. Louth which has a glorious view of the Mourne Mountains.
I’d love to hear about the coat in your life!
