Alright, this is really getting to me. I never gave strollers a second thought until I saw them pop up here on SF again and again. Let me begin by saying that a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I had a black blazer. It was purchased before I knew anything about dressing properly but it fit well. In the intervening time period I have learned a lot and grown. Pretty soon I had packed away my black blazer into the deep recesses of my storage space never to be seen again. I thought it was dead, gone. I wanted only to forget about the trauma of what I had done by wearing that jacket in public and move on with my life.
Then a nagging guilt began to wash over me. That jacket had done nothing wrong, it was simply being what it was. Had I committed an injustice by tossing it aside like one of those rosettes you get with a new suit? That guilt has no other purpose than the fact that I want a stroller. I don't need one, but I want one. Simple as that. Great for daytime wedding I'm sure, probably never have any other occasion to wear it, but screw it. I want one.
There is just one problem. I don't know what a stroller really is. When I say that I mean I don't know what the quintessential details of a stroller jacket are. All I've ever heard is "Black suit jacket". Is that it? My black jacket is worsted wool, single breasted, two button, notch lapel, flap pockets, single vent. Just plain ol black. Would it be a sin to use this jacket to build a stroller around? If so, what are the essential aspects of a stroller jacket because, whether I use my old black jacket or not, I AM going to get one.
Little help here?
