JAN-JAN VAN ESSCHE DONE DID IT AGAIN

There are a few reasons you might want to buy this Wadada Knit from Jan-Jan van Essche, but I can't presume to know which one(s) will resonate with you. Let's go through a few, in no random order, and you can let me know what floats your dirigible. Reason 8) It's made from a hand-knitted combination of coarse linen and soft Mongolian yak yarns. Reason 27) You're a huge Star Wars: The Force Awakens fan and want to dress like a more relaxed version of Rey. Reason 98) It has a tie closure. If none of those reasons convince you, then I'm pretty sure none of the other ones will either. Is it the price that's putting you off? At 959 USD, you'll only have to wear it every day for 2.627 years before your cost-per-wear ratio drops to $1:1. Seems completely reasonable to me. Did I mention it's made of yak hair? I did? Do you mind if I mention it again, because the yak hair thing is important to me. Don't ask me why, but it's important to me. Much love to the yaks and the yak farmers. Save me a sip of milk. Or don't. I don't think I've ever seen a yak in my entire life. Maybe in a zoo. I can't commit to anything yak-related at the moment, except for this garment. Cancel that sip of milk for sure. I'm going nowhere but bed right now. If I'm lucky, I'll dream of yak sweaters, instead of the unending anxiety nightmare that typically dominates every moment of my REM sleep -RB
