Hidden in plain sight
For as long as I can remember, I have loved the idea of hidden things: secret pockets, secret panels, secret passages. In any event, at some point in my twenties, someone explained to me that the way to remember the direction one should face the pleats in a cummerbund was informed by the fact that they originally had pockets in the pleats for opera tickets. Shortly thereafter, the J. Peterman catalogue (R.I.P.) had a contest to propose an item and write the copy.
I proposed the secret agent cummberbund, with working pocket for opera tickets…or radio detonator. Sadly, it was not chosen, and my dreams of being a copywriter for J. Peterman were dashed, forcing me into a life of counterterrorism and law. Nonetheless, I have continued to look for such a garment from time to time, which oddly brought me to Scottevest.
This is a company that has taken the secret pocket to an entirely new level. While the stylings of many of the items are a bit pedestrian, it is worth a look. If for nothing else than their “X-Ray” feature, which (tamely) shows what one can secret within their garments. I’m wondering if they make a pocket for silencers…
Sadly, they do not make a cummerbund.
Gentemen, please check to see that your seatbelts are securely fastened. The ride is about to begin…

Potentially the greatest backpack ever. Glen Eberle is my new hero. Watch to the very end for the punchline.
