While three’s a crowd, some things are just better in pairs. Strawberries and cream, Lennon and McCartney, Eric and Ernie…

Some details that just work well together such as the double pocket snaps on a paratrooper jump jacket (American or Belgian, take your pick) and the twin zips on the front placket of the US original, not only look good but are there for a reason. The pocket snaps expand to the fullness of the pockets, the twin zips hide the riggers knife, which can be accessed by either right or left hand if the paratrooper’s canopy is fouled.

Don’t skimp and save in times of austerity, indulge in the little details that matter, that makes all the difference, if in doubt double up, invest in two!
