History should teach us a lot of things. We would probably pay a lot more attention if it had a Facebook status, but there are still things we can learn. Your dad will always be better at fixing shit than you. You can (and will) hug and kiss your grandmother whenever you see her. If you need outerwear, you shop L.L. Bean. Just like your grandmother, mother nature can be… difficult (We’re pretty sure she hasn’t figured out the Internet, but we don’t want to take chances with anything harsher). With the 1947 Field Coat you get a full 100% cotton coat with a wool/nylon vest and more pockets (flap, patch, handwarmer) than you will ever use. Since it’s available in two pieces (you can shed the vest if necessary) and two colors it’s as adaptable as you are during the holidays.
