This was INTENDED to be a post about highlights from yesterday’s NYFW shows, but as I was reviewing the February Free People catalog, something much more important suddenly came up.
My eyes aren’t particularly drawn to any of the Free People clothing, and I think that’s most likely because Girls’ Christopher Abbott is more or less the scene stealer.
*SIDE NOTE* This weeks Girls episode solidified the sheer genius of Lena Dunham, and I was fully in tears at the roof scene.
Anyways - here he is, walking around town, all scruffy and rugged with this forgettable Free People-clad woman when I realized THIS JEAN JACKET IS VERY IMPORTANT.
IF you are a male and you are NOT spending your days walking around while happily kissing women, you should automatically deduce this is because you’re NOT wearing a denim jacket.
I googled, like any good researcher, and my revelation came to full grown fruition.
Here we have Charlie again (who PS, got way hotter in Season 2). He is WEARING this Denim Jacket, structured and mighty; the denim jacket is not wearing him. Layering is key here, so please pay attention:
Zac Efron is doing it too.
RYAN GOSLING IS OBVIOUSLY DOING IT.
This brooding smoker from The Sartorialist is doing it, and doing it well.
The lesson here: if you are a boy, and you aren’t wearing a denim jacket, you’re doing it wrong. So please:
You’ll thank me on Valentines Day.
