Found an 11th style coat at H&M. It was about $64.something with tax, but eh, it’s more comfortable than the heavy POS I bought on ebay that I can’t wear because SoCal weather.

Customer: “It’ll shrink if we wash it.”
Me: “Actually, it’s made of polyester, which happens to be pretty resilient stuff as far as being able to resist being shrunk or messed up in a wash on hot water and then dried. ~ “
Customer: "No it’ll shrink because it’s a man-made fiber. I’m taking fashion design so I know for sure what it’ll do."

Customer: ”.. … what.. “
Me: "Yeah I dunno, polyster is a very suspicious material."
