Remember when you that uncool guy in your high school was, well, uncool until he turned 16 and bought an Acura and pimped it out with lights and shit and then became “cool”?
Well, that’s not how I felt nor was I ever that guy. But I do want to just pimp out this jacket with hoods and zip-in vests. Ok, I’ve already said pimp twice in this paragraph. Let’s pretend like I didn’t and just watch another episode of “Pimp My Ride.”
Breaking in the Baldwins.
Also, the best part about the hood is the copper wire that is embedded around the edge of the hood, so you can pry that puppy around your sweet little face and it won’t fly back when the wind/haters are in your face.
Christmas came early with J.Crew’s Black Friday sale.
As well as this past weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair over in Wicker Park.
Loads of goodies to be found and bought.
