Much has been said about the volatility of Melbourne’s weather. ‘Four seasons in one day,’ runs the slogan. And it’s true – you just never know what to expect from a regular day.
Annoyingly, the Victorian capital’s unpredictable conditions means it’s hard to know what to wear. A jacket will become obsolete when the sun starts beating down, your thongs will end up being a huge mistake when the torrential downpour hits. It’s a nightmare.
A designer in Melbourne is fed up with the uncertainty and has made it his mission to create a garment to withstand all shades of weather. It’s an all purpose, all things considered concept named The Melbourne Jacket, and it’s genius.
The Melbourne Jacket is a garment specifically designed for Melbourne’s out of control weather patterns. It has everything you could ever want or need for when extreme weather hits: retractable thongs, snow gloves, a ski mask, an asthma storm respirator and an built-in singlet, among a bunch of other features.
One jacket and you’ll never have to worry about a change in weather again? That’s pretty sweet. It may even be really handy for some visitors who don’t want to pack a million different types of clothes.
The project is currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, with a goal of AUD$12,000 needed to get the concept off the ground.
