8:55am on Thursday, 22nd July, 2021:



Recently, because I've been doing some consultancy for a company, they sent me a hoodie. It's a really good hoodie, as it happens, but there's one thing about it that I find disconcerting.

Here are photos of the zips on all my jackets that have zips (excluding the orange hoodie that's hanging in my office at university):

As you can see, all of them have the zip on the left (as you wear it; the right as you look at it), except for the one in the lower right-hand corner. That's the new hoodie. For that one, the zip is on the right and the bar you slot into it is on the left.

I don't know if this is some kind of male/female, Europe/USA, non-hoodie/hoodie thing or what, but it unnerves me every time I put it on. Zips shouldn't work like that!
