Black Fleece Poncho Anyone?

Brooks Brothers Black Fleece collection presents this “daring” (and highly impractical) outerwear for Spring 2011.

Start with some rain add a little wind and you’ll see why I find it highly improbable that this garment could actually keep anyone dry for a prolonged length of time (ridiculous factor aside).

These ponchos comes in two versions one for day-wear and one apparently for more formal occasions.  The printed version is made  from Italian double layer coated nylon with a signature tonal print while the formal tipped poncho is cotton ripstop with black grosgrain tipping. Both  include a Grosgrain hood drawcord, side tabs, silver logo side snaps, buttons, and drawcord ends.

I think Carl Sagan was particularly observant when he said “Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.”

Tipped poncho price: $375.00

Printed poncho price: $550.00
