My Vest is White is a compelling piece of literature creating an incandescent juxtaposition between the machinations of the textile industry and the ubiquitous nature of societal gender norms. By page six, the first protagonist, a young male child, has illuminated the various spectroscopy of inlaid dies associated with various garments. After which, the second protagonist is introduced as the female counterpart to the linear array of male apparel. After each protagonist’s identity and character are revealed through their choice of outerwear, the story takes an unexpected turn and focuses on gender-neutral accessories. Thus fulfilling in conclusion, the need to propagate the consumerist cycle of the capitalist industrial complex. I highly recommend this book as it orchestrates a stupendous view of the salient features of our Kafkaesque cycle of our fabricated need for textile consumption and production.
