i was walking back from the library and saw this on the ground, it is a face hood. one that i have not seen before. it looks like this , worn by the warrior in princess mononoke. i happen to watch this and saw him and was reminded at how similar his head piece was to the thing i found.

the one i found is made of fleece. it has not got any brand name, which is surprising, because it looked very well designed. it has this inner face mask, with two draw strings on either side of the face to tighten it over the nose. very useful, because if there is a fierce cold wind blowing, the nose and mouth always gets it, so something to cover those two vulnerable areas would be great. the other areas which can get cold are the ears. this one protects them too. this design is like a balaclava, but much more elegant.

i had to wait till this morning to get the picture of the hoodie. 

its an interesting design. don’t you think? and no brand name. just a little label ‘made in china’ 100% polyester.

only a few days ago i was telling this guy who was waiting at the bus stop; who was saying to me he was freezing, that he should get a hoodie , a scarf and gloves. and i told him u can get it free too, people tend to drop those things, and i showed him all those things i was wearing which i got free from just finding them on the street. (and here is this hoodie, just lying on the pavement).

 i ended up telling him off for not wearing these things, no wonder he felt cold.
