you were talking about letting a tailor alter it right?

I agree. Do not try and shrink something by blasting it in the dryer. You will damage the materials of the jacket, pay the extra money to get it tailored. If not, donate it to the salvation army and get a tax break.

Put it on, pull the hood over your head and secure tightly. Lie in a hot bath until the hood pulls the underside of the armholes against your armpits. Step out of the bath and wait until completely dry. You might want to prepare a milkshake beforehand that you can zip with a straw through the opening of the hood until the garment is dry. The jacket will mould perfectly against your body. You will be the envy of all your friends and colleagues at work.

Cotton will shrink, but polyester won't, so fuck knows what would happen if you tried to shrink that. If you really want it smaller, have it altered properly.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
