“I don’t have many possessions, and certainly no baubles, but I do pride myself on my sport coats. They are really my only jewels, though it’s more like they’re a knight’s armor. I’m able to sally forth in style and engage the world when I have a sport coat on. Wallet, keys, pens, a little notebook, change, a paperback novel – everything I need to survive, except maybe water – all fit into the various pockets.”
Jonathan Ames, in his novel Wake Up, Sir!
