K-Way on sale at Mark’s Work Wearhouse for $39.99.
Remember those K-Way windbreakers from the 1980s? Everyone had one (FF’s was pink), and they were really quite demure and practical relative to the revealing apparel of today. Great for biking, an unexpected rainstorm, camping or cottaging and easily stored in its own handy pouch.
Whether you’re old enough to appreciate the original, just like that “retro look” or prefer not to be wet and cold, the K-Way is now back in Canada and available exclusively at Mark’s Work Wearhouse stores for $39.99. www.marks.com
