We think you'll be impressed with how this Betsey Johnson Lace-Up Leather Jacket ($495) is made. First of all, gatherers from Southern Angola stand back to back (in groups of eight). At the sound of an elephant's trumpet, the gatherers spread out, searching for the elusive polyester tree (native to Angola, so it seems). The polyester is pulled, strand by strand, then knitted together by area artisans.
It's a little late and we're a bit slap-happy here. In any case, we've decided that the manufacturing process employed in constructing a jacket that looks this great from every angle doesn't really matter. Oh, and get this: we can machine wash it. Score!
Wow, does that Betsey Johnson makes some fun stuff. Wanna See?
