THE COAT CAUGHT TEN YEARS AGO

It's been cold in Tokyo and I pulled out this black coat for the first time in ten years.
I was a student. I remember that I splurged on this black long coat by saving little by little.
At that time, I had several jobs, a tutor, an interpreter, and an intern at a trust company.
There were very few fast-fashion stores or e-boutiques, so I imperatively learned how to 
find good outfits in great quality though I didn't earn a lot.

Fashion comes and goes, and the ''normcore'' trends brought the long-length coats back again now.
I'm a longtime believer that having a few valuable things are nicer than buying many cheap,
low-quality items.
So now I'm grateful that I passed through the time without fast-fashion and proudly wearing this coat 
quite often this winter.
