I’m sure we could play a quick guessing game as to what the above item might be, but let’s jump to its purpose: it’s a valet. A clothes valet, in case you are unaware, is usually a waist-high wooden stand of questionable aesthetic value that provides a hanging spot for oft-worn items that are wrinkle prone, like a favorite suit jacket.
Now, this Jeeves Valet is functional, beautiful, and weird (does anyone else see bull horns?), which puts it firmly into the category of how-can-I-rationalize-this-luxury-purchase-because-it’s-sort-of-wonderful. Should you currently need a place to hang your suit, good for you, because you already have a reason to buy it.
“It is called Jeeves in reference to the P.G Wodehouse novel character, a butler who defines himself as a gentleman’s personal gentleman.”
