Ah, the priest robe. One of those perfect pieces of clothing, fetishized for me in the late 80’s and 90’s (Thanks, Fred Berger. You really DID ruin me for life.), and then utterly destroyed by the Hot Topic era of Hefty Bag Cassocks and that Ubiquitous Awful Tripp Coat. So, when I saw the new collection from Finland’s Achilles Ion Gabriel, I admit it triggered a certain nostalgia for the Good Old Days. And I gotta say, a well cut cassock still looks damn good.
But seriously, about that Tripp coat. Kill it with fire.
