Ancestors: Kenway Options

Since the Kenway jacket is available with two closure options, this post is to help explain the differences. Keep in mind, I have only made the asymmetrical option, so the symmetrical images are photoshopped and approximate.

In the top two images, on the left is the center fastened option, and the right in the asymmetrical option. The symmetrical option has narrower turnback panels and falls a little further apart, because the panel is turned away from the center, where the asymmetrical option has wider panels which when turned back fall closer to the center.

The middle image shows how the asymmetrical version looks when half-closed, exposing the blue ‘lapels’, which is a feature I personally like.

The bottom two images are laid out the same way as the top two, with the symmetrical version on the left. The left one zippers down the center of the wearer’s chest, where the asymmetrical version closes more like a fencing jacket. On the actual version of the symmetrical style, the left most zipper would not be complete when the jacket is closed, but would instead be half of a zipper, as would the right most zipper, where the center zipper would be both sides of a zipper fastened together.

I hope this helps to clarify, if there are further questions, feel free to ask in email.

Kenway Jacket - $345 USD

Unfortunately, orders are currently closed. Please follow my blog or keep an eye out at volantedesign.us for updates.

I am a college graduate that spent the last several years working for non-profits along with my wife.  At the height of our careers in this field we earned a grand total of $12.00 an hour each. 

Our clothes come from discount bins and thrift stores, our cars are used and our luxuries are minimal.  We subscribe to neither a cell phone plan nor Cable TV.

My wife and I both lost our jobs over a year ago.  Non-profits have cut their hiring and operate on shoestring budgets.  I have had 6 interviews after sending out over 200 resumes this past year.  Not a single job offer is in sight.

We have had excellent credit and never gone into debt for anything other than student loans and a mortgage…  We have “played the game”.

We are walking a razor’s edge right now; on one side we have endless debt and the other, destitution.

If people who have dedicated their lives and careers to helping others end up in this situation, who’s going to be left to help the even less fortunate?

We are the 99%

Hello. My name is M.
I am a freshman in college. My dream is to go to law school… But I don’t think that is going to happen. You see, I don’t even know how I’m going to pay for my undergraduate degree… Let alone for law school.
I had it all planned out in high school. I had a 4.0 GPA. I was in the NHS. I was very active in extracurriculars. I was a GOOD STUDENT. Not only that, I was a GOOD PERSON – a GOOD DAUGHTER.
I never got into trouble – I never did anything to disappoint my parents. In return they promised to help with college. When I lived at home I had a very good life. I never worried about where I was going to sleep or where to get my next meal.
Until I told my parents I was gay.
They kicked me out.
They emptied my bank account.
I left for college with $300 I had saved.
I don’t know how I’m going to ever pay off my school loans.
Don’t even get me started on medical bills. (The stress of being kicked out put me in the hospital where doctors found tumors in my liver and right kidney – nothing has been done.)
I keep applying for jobs – But I. Can’t. Find. One.
BUT I still consider myself lucky. I have to opportunity to get an education – many do not.
I am the 99%.

I work for children with disabilties.

I owe $20,000 in loans.

I will pay it back in 12 years.

I will probably never retire unless things change.

If I ever get sick or injured, I will lose my job and then my house.

I want my daughter to feel safe choosing a life of giving and service.

I don’t feel safe.

I am the 99 percent.
