The GF picked out a new jacket for me at Nordstroms over New Year’s. Because I liked the jacket I casually (and unwisely) dismissed concerns it could become a magnet for babes.

As the first photo shows, the situation spiraled out of control, disrupting my ability to enjoy a simple solo evening out when the GF was otherwise occupied.

Fortunately, a simple bandaid is all it took to remedy the discomfort. Since applying the fix, I haven’t had any problems in the babe magnet department. Who knew?
