Clothes-Talking: Kill Your Army Jacket

 Patient: Self

Age: A number

Symptoms: Paranoia; potentially-delusional feelings of seeing "doubles" of self on street, invariably wearing the same olive green jacket; patient claims she's "most definitely not hallucinating."

Diagnosis: Army jacket fatique

Treatment: KILL YOUR ARMY JACKET

And so it goes. This morning I saw one, two, three, four...too many of my "selves" wearing the same army green military-style jacket—all within a one-block stretch. Obviously there's a reason so many New Yorkers (women and men) have embraced this piece as their go-to outer layer: it's a functional, durable mid-season jacket that can easily be dressed-up or down. The color's neutral so it pairs well with just about anything we're wearing (And, I think New Yorkers are especially keen on saying, ha! See? Not everything we own is black!). But these days I'm feeling less trendy and more like a clone, so, without a bit of reluctance, I plan on killing my army jacket. Or not really killing it, per se... But it will dye.

WHAT COLOR SHOULD WE DYE IT???
