A vending machine vests at the airport of San Francisco is mocked online, but officials say that thousands of dollars per month.

The “Uniqlo To-Go” machine, which distributes $50 down vests in several colours, brings around $10,000 per month at SFO, according to Doug Yakel, a spokesman of the airport.

“This is the first time that we have clothing available for sale from a vending machine, which we thought was very unique,” Yakel told the Business Insider.

The concept of the Uniqlo clothing vending machines is not new. The Japanese retailer is the sale of popular items in shopping malls and airports across the country for about a year now.

Many of the machines sell two of the brand’s popular items, a thermal T-shirt and a light down jacket, but the fact that the one in San Francisco is the sale of jackets has it the butt of many jokes.

For some reason, vests have become the unofficial uniform of Silicon Valley and are synonymous with investors in the region, Business Insider reports. So if someone posted a picture of the atm on Twitter, people could not help, but how very “San Francisco” was.
