For proof that all jackets are not created equal, check out this Inspector Gadget-worthy trench coat with, ahem, 18 pockets (hello, airport organizational skills!). It’s by SCOTTeVEST and has special spots for pens, an iPad, a water bottle, and sunnies. Suffice it to say, you shouldn’t be surprised that it was created by a someone who seriously loves his tech toys.
“For as long as I’ve been collecting and using gadgets, I’ve had to carry them around,” company CEO Scott Jordan remembered, tracking his accessory journey from backpack to fanny pack to…his significant other. “When I got married, gadget-toting duties fell to my wife. I remember standing at the door of our house in Chicago, figuring out what gadgets I needed for the day, and I kept handing her more and more stuff until she said, ‘I’m not your personal Sherpa!'” And thus he was inspired.
The brand has pocketed shirts and pants available too, but it’s the coat selection that really impresses. There’s a quilted nylon zip-up and an on-trend parka alongside the trench, and all are made of water- and stain-resistant material (because someone practical enough to fill 18 pockets does not need to waste time hitting up the dry cleaner).
Tired of spending the morning wondering whether you need a coat? Yup, we’ve created an app to answer that question once and for all.
