Oi Polloi runs a series called the Deck~Out where they style an outfit that turns the wearer into some sort of sartorial superhero, complete with an origin story, repressed memories and urgent agenda. This week’s, No. 414: Bear Chills.
“Look at his face. His steely smoulder suggests – nay, asserts – he’s ready for anything. His posture? Steadfast, focussed, controlled. See that waterproof jacket? This is a man who’s not taking any chances. The Swiss army knife stuffed in his socks? You better believe that’s not just for opening letters. Those hard-wearing corduroy slacks? Someone’s not shy around a DeWalt table saw. The Spam in his pocket? He’s in it for the long haul. And those boots aren’t just for talking – they’re for giving out contact counselling.
Where’s Bear Chills headed? Yep, he’s heading out to a ‘free beer art event’.
We all know how hairy those shindigs can get.”
