When an old, rugged, cotton canvas climbing jacket once belonging to my father went missing, I had lost the best and most characterful piece of clothing I have ever possessed.
Originally owned by Andreas Geissberger, a true man of the mountains (skiing slalom for the Swiss Ski Team, and when he wasn't, leading climbs in the Alps and Himalayas), it was given to my father, his friend, who further wore it on his travels between the great wildernesses and metropolises of the world: following the Colorado river riding on a Triumph Bonneville, skiing and mountaineering in the Alps and sailing the south coast of Britain. He shaped the natural fibres of the jacket one adventure at a time.
