Vest Pocket Ashtray


By Maison Martin Margiela so by definition it's way cooler than you.

"Mini-ashtray in polished stainless steel with a clip to hold it to the user's pocket. Allows you to get rid of ashes when no classic ashtray is around."

Actually, jo, I used to know someone who would do that. And enjoy it. A musician friend of mine (trumpet player) was the most unapologetic nicotine fiend I've ever known (this was back in the early 80's before the great purges) and although he did usually limit himself to a pack a day, he thought the smell of tobacco in all its forms, including used, was heaven. He used to joke about a perfect world with a "cigarette truck" that would roam through neighborhoods like an ice cream van, chiming a merry tune and selling packs & cartons & cigarette butt ice cream for treats. Then years later I saw this 90's cartoon, and wondered if he'd met Roz Chast (click & enlarge for detail):
