White Coat Hypotension

Land’s End sells white coats.  The kind that doctors wear.

I got an email hawking Land’s End stuff.  Promising big
savings.  So I notice this:


Anyway, I looked at the image of the coat.  I imagined myself
putting it on.  Got chills.  Yuck.  

I’m glad I went to medical school.  There was more good than
bad.  But yuck.

    The lab coat in the picture is the short version, which I associate with being a med student. It’s the emasculated, “doctor-in-training”, version of the real thing. I’d rather dress up in a hard hat and bunny slippers.

    What’s on the next page – an orange short-sleeved jumpsuit?

    Hey now, it’s only $8. That’s the sort of price actual med students could afford.

    The real question is: Is the material any good? Is it thick? A good blend that will doesn’t wrinkle too much, sheds blood stains easily, and doesn’t pill?
