Are down coats the new Botox?

This evening, some construction workers tried to strike up a conversation with me, or something like that, perhaps disproving John Derbyshire's theory that women cease to be attractive after age 20, making me a full two years past my prime. But of course Derbyshire referred specifically to how women look naked, and I was wearing a puffy winter coat; surely had I disrobed, these men would have lost interest entirely.

There's only one way to be sure.

Derbyshire's always right. So much as unzipping my coat would have caused the men to recoil in horror.
