My Denim Jacket
Miss Sophie of les anti-modernes* wrote a blog just over a week ago about what she considers one of her foundation wardrobe items, her denim jacket. Now that Melbourne is considering moving into spring — don’t rush, M-Town — mine is getting a lot of play.
Mine belonged to my Dad, he owned it as a teenager in the late 1960’s. He was really keen to give it to me last year, and I wasn’t as excited about it then, but it has really grown on me I must admit. It’s a little worse for wear, but in a really perfect way.
These are the badges. Pinning them on the jacket started off as a way not to lose them (this indie kid has a lot of badges), but now I kind of like them there. There’s Bob Dylan and The Hovercrafts, plus a very sparkly Daffodil Day pin. The one of the cassette is from The Melbourne Mixtape Exchange and I don’t know why she’s apples, but there was a time where it felt like every musician in Melbourne had a song about apples. None of these songs appear to be on the Internet anymore, but in more recent times, Jakkson Fish and The Unholy Racket are keeping up the tradition with their song ‘Apples’.
