Yo, I learned some shit today. When I first saw this Still By Hand plaid linen coat w/Silicon Finish, I was like "Wait, do you mean w/Silicone Finish? Or is this jacket actually a microprocessor?" and then I laughed a self-satisfied laugh, appreciating my own intelligence and razor sharp wit. Then I started Googling and realized that I'm just an idiot. Apparently, silicon-based materials are often used for waterproofing, so often that "the majority of waterproofing processes rely on silicon to some degree" . The most commonly used of these materials are siloxane, silane, and silicone rubber. And while I'd love to discuss the highly technical differences between these compounds, I won't, because I'm bad at chemistry and have no idea what any of those things are. I'm not proud of that, but there it is. This is the worst The More You Know spot ever -RB
