Despite the seemingly common belief that the temperatures in this part of Asia are always similar to summer in California, it’s been extremely cold. With temperatures dipping down to 10˚C puffy jackets abound. While I’ll stick to my light jacket with hidden layers underneath, to help perpetuate the myth that Canadians are impervious to cold, I would like to add a couple of accessories that have been mentioned frequently to the mix.
Made from lightweight 100% rodeo cotton flannel, the Julian scarf features hidden pockets to keep your iPhone or other valuables conveniently accessible while hiding them from the hands of others. Available in a variety of patterns and colors, the scarf’s ripstop nylon pockets are closed with invisible YKK zippers. Julian Scarf.
Etre Touchy are wool gloves with the tips of the thumb and index finger exposed to allow for convenient usage of touch screen devices like the iPhone. The gloves give you the warmth and dryness of a normal pair of gloves combined with the touch-screen/electronic device compatibility of fingerless gloves.
The idea is not entirely innovative but their implementations seems fresh and timely. Etre Touchy gloves.
I do like when fashion accommodates the real needs of people using modern tools. Most of the attempts I have viewed in the past are more exploratory in nature or meant for active sports. These are more practical and accessible to a wider audience. And in this economy combining your accessories can make good financial sense.
