Prepare to forego rent and/or groceries this month, because this Luigi Coat from Atelier & Repairs is a damn near perfect garment and your closet requires its presence. This flaming hot jawn is made in the good ole US of A, from 100% “regenerated denim”, a combination of 50% Refibra™ (recycled cellulose fibers) and 50% recycled cotton from the Candiani Denim mill, making it sustainable as fuck. Obviously I mean sustainable for the Earth, not sustainable for your wallet, because it costs 625 USD. If you buy this shit, I’m pretty sure Mint.com just emails you the middle finger emoji. Now, if you thought for one second that I could write an entire post about a piece called a “Luigi Coat” and not make some irrelevant references to the Mario Bros. franchise, you don’t know me and you don’t know my blog. Without further ado, here comes the randomness. Although I’ve never tried sucking a bunch of ghosts into a modified household vacuum cleaner, I imagine this coat is what I’d wear if I did. It’s decidedly more lit than blue overalls, a pair of bigass white gloves, and a green sweater. Is it a sweater or sweatshirt? I have no worldly fucking clue. Not that I’m trying to malign the fashion sense of the great Luigi Mario, of course. Does it bother any of you that Luigi and Mario’s surname is actually Mario? That little tidbit was first introduced in the unambiguously awful 1993 live-action film, Super Mario Bros, but even venerable game creator Shigeru Miyamoto has since confirmed it as canon (kind of). Guess I’ll just add that to the ever-growing list of shit that I desperately wish weren’t true, but definitely is, right next to the current occupant of the White House and the fact that carbs are bad for you. Fucking carbs. Carbs are like that one “bad” friend you have as a teen. The one your mom hates because she smokes cigarettes, cuts class, and is a compulsive liar. Yeah, she might introduce you to some interesting indie folk bands and convince you to get a cool new haircut, but you definitely end up with trust issues and a drug problem by the time you go to college. Thanks a lot, Mia. Her name has to be Mia. Apologies to all the Mias out there. You’re not bad people. I know you didn’t mean to do what you did. Plus it’s nice that you’re helping The Mountain Goats get more fans -RB
