Did you just get here? You can wear whatever you want around here. The hard part will be finding anyone else who notices or cares.
Not a Seinfeld fan I take it? In that episode Jerry buys a suede jacket with a candy stripe lining and turns it inside out to avoid ruining it during a snowstorm, which makes his ex-gf's father think he's effeminate. Was mostly a question about whether I'll have to baby suede given all the drizzle we have here or not, but snake's umbrella suggestion is true enough. Now just to bargain the guy down a bit.
