The Out and About Jacket is fun and functional, comfy and outgoing. It is ideal for a walk in a city park with a dog, or traveling to an international location with Art Galleries or Museum tours in mind. It is so comfy it can double as a pillow or a blanket on a plane and light enough to stuff into a suitcase without wrinkling. The light weight belies the warmth it can provide. It is a compliment catcher and conversation starter.
It combines nine fabrics all made exclusively for Lee Andersen. It also presents three large hand crafted buttons as practical art. The top button is a combination of hand colored coconut shell layered under a photo of a rose photo-shopped lime green and transferred onto a wooden base. The edges of the button have been hand tooled and then burnt.
The second button is a hand carved wooden leaf painted green and burnt to create a piece of functional folk art. The third button is hand formed ceramic clay, hand pressed onto a real starfish and then hand glazed.
The right side has a practical pocket with Italian woven textured yarns as trim. The deep cuffs fold down in the cool weather to keep your hands warm and roll up 8 inches for a person with shorter arms.
