I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! 

Margarine’s been around for a minute. As legend has it, Napoleon decided one day that he didn’t want to spend a lot of money on feeding all the soldiers who were out there fighting his wars for him, so he decided to cut corners on butter. He commissioned the French chemist Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès and margarine was born in 1869. In the century and a half that has passed since Mège-Mouriès’ breakthrough, imitation butter has evolved to fantastical new heights. Take this Leather Jockey Jacket from De Bonne Facture, for example. People always describe good leather as “buttery” and this jacket is buttery. Much like the Snow Peak Flexible Insulated Shirt, this jacket is one of those pieces that you just want to pet all the time because it’s so damn soft. As 19th century French soldiers probably exclaimed as they took their first bites of margarine, I can’t believe it’s not butter!
