there is almost no occasion in which a jean jacket can't save an outfit. i first wore a jean jacket over my girl scout uniform circa 1985. in that instance, the jean jacket served double duty: fashion and saving my life from spontaneous combustion by green polyester. while surrounded by 25 other green polyester clad seven-year-olds. oh and troop leaders. enough of a mental picture? oh and our pants were tapered and rolled. gawd, my eyes.
since denim will forever be current i add my jean jacket to many a work ensembles. at first, it was purely out of necessity (my office is like an igloo most days) before i realized i could slot my jean jacket with my cardigans and casual suit jackets. oh and this time i finally embraced the whole tights with slightly open-toed shoes. so crazy bold right?

clearly, atty does it better. oh and he had his first jean jacket at twenty weeks. gestation people. you know? in the womb. style for miles and miles i tell you.
