Tutorial Tuesday: How To Remove your Coat

Okay, Ladies:

Now that cold weather is here, we, here at Bitter Betty Industries, would just be heartbroken if you gals were just shedding those outer wear garments any old shulmpy way. We offer this handy tutorial from the Nurses Guide to Charm, which was loaned to BBI by the utterly charming Becktress.

Click on the image to enlarge and you will see how to remove your coat and have it neatly folded over your arm in 6 simple movements...This is, of course, assuming Prince Charming isn't there to assist you most Gallantly.
(Don't look at me sister, he doesn't live here.)


So, practice!
Because if you just dump that thing on the floor, I am telling your mother.

Oh my gosh...now I think I have a little more insight into the anality (is that a word?) of my next door neighbor. She is...well...not quite young anymore, and she is also very particular about "things" being "just so". I am sure she would adore this article.

"No matter what you've heard about this, do not turn the lining out."

I love the thought that girls in days-gone-by would gossip about (gasp) whether or not to turn your coat lining out. :)

Ok, so this makes me ridiculously happy.

Now, could you please come teach the people in my town how to drive? Heh.

Oh, this is embarrassing...I do this! Someone taught me (My grandmother? My retail boss?) a long time ago. It does keep your suit jacket from getting creased! I swear!

The pictures are live on my blog now! Hope you like them there!

What a cute post! I would never have thought of this. The only coat I've worn in the last 10 years is my ski jacket on the slopes--not too much need for coats in Tucson. However, I will keep this handy little demo in mind for future use.

does this mean i have to keep my coat on one warm whilst holding my cocktail in the other hand? or does the same arm deal with the coat and cocktail? and is there a certain way i should sip my cocktail (pinky out)? cocktail in one hand, hors d'oeuvres (just a tiny few) in the other, coat over the arm. . . Ooooh, so many steps to being a proper lady. just give me a beer and anorak.

Do I have to look like a well-coiffed robot while correctly removing my coat? Because that woman in the picture is either a robot or has had an ice pick lobotomy, like poor Frances Farmer.

Sheesh! How have I come this far without coat removal tutoring? Where do you find this stuff, dear bitter one?

capello said...

When I read this I immediately got up from my desk, put on my jacket and removed it properly, do ya think "they" are all wondering about the "Proper" Temp typing away with her coat balanced neatly over her arm? Maybe I'll get this job after all!!! Lindy

The funny thing is - it actually works!

Frances Farmer didn't have a lobotomy. That was just a bogus story to sell books and get a movie made.
