Lock up your priceless artifacts, world, because I’m about to scoop up one of these Archive Twin Track Jackets from Private White VC x Division Road and get my off-brand Indiana Jones on. Inspired by 1930s British motorcycle jackets and military field jackets, this waxed cotton beauty is purpose-built for swashbuckling, quasi-archeological adventures. It features a removable center placket and removable throat flap, because customization is the name of the game when you’re a globe-trotting explorer with a devil may care attitude, million dollar smirk, and prehensile bullwhip. I consider it to be a major personal failing that I cannot be (and have never been able to be) described as “swashbuckling”, although I did at one point, in my freshman year of college, purchase an eye patch and start wearing it to parties, coming up with a new injury or illness-related backstory for it any time I was asked and switching eyes when no one was looking. I was going through my quirky side-character in a teen movie where are the teens are played by twenty-seven year olds phase. Also, I was beset on all sides by the inequity of generalized anxiety disorder and the tyranny of boundless self-loathing. Obviously that’s all in the past. I’m fine now. No lingering issues here. I don’t even know why you’d think that. You’re probably projecting. It’s a defense mechanism. Everybody does it. Except me. I have nothing to be defensive about. I’m not an imposter, haunted by the fear of failure and the specter of my own inadequacy. Unhand me, personal demons! The power of my vices compels you! Goddamn, I totally planned on this post being mostly about the exploits of a fictionalized archaeologist version of myself, but I got a little sidetracked. Things got kind of dark there and I apologize. So, if you’ve got 875 USD kicking around, go ahead and cop that jacket. Don’t do it for me. Do it for the fictionalized archaeologist version of yourself -RB
