A creative briton by the name of Lee Cimino has in recent days received very much attention for a brilliant homemade jacket, which makes that he can get easily and elegantly without on Ryanair's new infamous rules on cabin baggage.
The typing of The Sun.
The 30-year-old briton from Straffordshire chose to simply sew his belongings onto his jacket when he last weekend to fly with the budget airline to Belfast.
Ryanair's new rules came into force just a few days before the trip, which meant that Lee Cimino had to pay between six and eight pounds (about 50-70 dollars) to get his bag on board the plane. So the cunning briton might therefore think of alternative solutions to save money, and therefore he took an old jacket to the tailor, who sewed large pockets into it with space for all of Lee's belongings.
- I fly always with Ryanair, so I'm a little bit caught when it comes to their new cabin baggage rules, says the briton to The Sun, and continues:
I packed not much, but just what I needed for an overnight stay. I had a pair of pants, a pair of shorts, a T-shirt, a sweater, a towel, a pair of boxer shorts and some stockings.

Ekstra Bladet has been in touch with the creative briton, who tells that he escaped easily through the airport without anyone commented on the strange jacket.
I actually thought that it would get more attention in the airport, but my friend said that I really just looked like a hipster, says Lee Cimino.
The 30-year-old briton says, however, that he is extremely surprised by how much attention his invention has been subsequent.
- It has been a bit brittle. I just did it for fun and to see if it could be done, and now I get enquiries from America, Greece and China. It is a bit overwhelming.
Lee Cimino has now decided to try to sell the jacket at an auction, after which he will give 50 percent of any profits to a charity of Ryanair's choice.
- I love Ryanair and think they are fantastic, so it is therefore that I will have to choose the recipient, says Lee.
- I have no idea what it is sold for. I just hope that people can see the fun in it all, and that they will offer the for the name of charity's sake.
