I am obsessed by the reefer jacket advertised in Gieves & Hawkes Spring/Summer 2009 catalogue and no longer RTW available.

Does anyone know where I could find an equivalent or better interpretation of reefer jacket and be so kind to advise me abvout such?

Ask the gentlemen on the street corners of your nearest inner city neighborhood.

You seem better acquainted with the language of the streets than that of fashion. The word "reefer" as I use it refers to a jacket, not to cannibas sativa. For your information, the use of such reefer is damaging to your health in respect to concentration and memory, among other effects not helpful to know yourself and the world.

Wait, so you're saying you don't want a jacket made from marijuana?

That's correct - I grew up and went to school in the inner city of where the poster kylelovesyou above who mistakes the meaning of "reefer" claims as location. Presumably you do not share such experience in view of the manner in which you speak of it. However, my thread does not have as theme violence on and off the street, and in point of concentration I repeat I asked about reefer as a jacket.

I strongly recommend you change your residence. Chicago is a difficult place to develop for many.

It's really great to hear from all of you and read your advice. I learned I must be far more careful in formulation of my questions on this forum because you are all so highly differentiated in your comprehension. Now I know how important clear thinking and adequate speech is in daily life and how environment can provide necessary stimulation for higher states of consciousness in our human evolution whereever we are! Thanks so much!

Off-topic a little, I know, but a quick question about heredity - is Naive, Sr. more or less naive than you?

I was just about to say John Partridge. That is if you are looking for a waxed versus wool reefer. I have this one and quite like it.

^ That doesn't look like a reefer jacket (non-narcotic version). I always thought a reefer was akin to the nautical double breasted blazer with brass buttons?
