#003 "Buffalo Plaid Jacket" 12"x12" acrylic on wood panel

The Buffalo plaid jacket... or the "Kenora Dinner Jacket" or the "Sudbury Tuxedo"... one of these lurks somewhere in just about any Canadian's house. A three season staple spotted anywhere from campsites to construction sites, coffee shops to high school smoking areas and hockey arenas to arena rock concerts. This is the jacket everyone had, sometimes in green but really... c'mon man... the red is the one. 
Most common accessories for the plaid jacket when I was growing up was a pair of Greb Kodiaks on the feet and a pack of smokes in the pocket (shown here with Export A greens in their natural habitat.
The Buffalo jacket... a classic piece of Canadiana from coast to coast.
