Why We're Endorsing the Jardigan for President

No one can say a jardigan is too old for the job. It literally never ages—and looks great on camera, to boot.

We know, we know, the election is everywhere, and there’s hardly any escaping the chaos (nor should we—it’s important). But geez, wouldn’t it be nice to slip into something comfy and have a five-minute break?

Luckily, picking the president of your closet is a lot easier than picking the president of our country, and we’ve already found the perfect candidate for the job: The jardigan

You might be thinking—a cardigan? That’s not very presidential (tell that to Elizabeth Warren!). But this isn’t a cardigan; it’s a jardigan, a jacket-cardigan hybrid that is both formal and functional. But where does it stand on all the important issues?

The jardigan stretches across the aisle, be it a political aisle or an airplane aisle—it’s made of flexible fabric, but inflexible standards. It has a proven track record of empowering women of all stripes. It’s highly collaborative (it works just as well with pants as it does with skirts!). And it’s a balm against climate change, if the climate is a drafty government building. It’s the highly likable wardrobe staple that you can wear to get the job done and actually want to grab a beer with afterwards. It comes in a variety of colors—including red and blue—making it amenable to people with different styles or political affiliations. And did we mention it’s wrinkle-resistant? That’s right: No one can say a jardigan is too old for the job. It literally never ages—and looks great on camera, to boot.

Speaking of the younger constituents, a jardigan looks cool with a t-shirt and jeans (like our new Milos), but when paired with the Harlem skirt, can also be worn as part of a stretchy, two-piece suit. And it’s reliable. For years, it has consistently been one of our bestsellers. Coming in three distinct styles—the Woolf, the Sant Ambroeus, and the Merritt—there’s a jardigan for every kind of party.

So why are we even talking about other candidates? You already know who you’re casting your vote for for president of your wardrobe. She’s the resilient, reliable, and common-sense wardrobe staple that remains a classic while adapting to changes in your life, your career, or even just your day. So vote for the jardigan. She literally works for everyone.
