One of my 8th graders gave it to me today as a Christmas gift...I was not wearing it when i left the house this morning, but since she gave it to me I figured I'd wear it for the day...
I love B's jacket, obviously. I don't understand people's aversion to loud patterns/plaids. They're not good for everyday, but I think for the month of December they're more than acceptable. Maybe I'm just a big kid at heart, but to me there's something so special that starts on Thanksgiving and ends on New Years. But then I still cry at the end of It's A Wonderful Life after seeing it hundreds of times.
I'm all for getting into the spirit of Christmas and this can be done in a number of ways evolving from various traditions but I utterly fail to see the connection between celebrating Christmas and weariing horrifically loud tartan jackets.
Whatever happened to having fun and not being serious and correct all the time...
I agree. I think the pattern of Mr. Corbera's coat is beautiful. No0bs need to lurk moar perhaps..
are people really questioning F. Corbera's tartan dinner jacket Is there no appreciation or understanding of history on this forum anymore
Although some have managed to butcher the concept - this from GQ in 1973
Actually the jacket in tartan in this image is far from wretched - but the tie
We'll not even discuss the madras.
Bill, I love it.
The thing is, I bet wherever old Bill went no one gave a shit that he wasn't in a plain dinner jacket, etc. Either they didn't know what it should normally look like, or they didn't care. I think we all forget, if momentarily, that outside of ourselves and our companions, no one really gives a shit about what we're wearing, no matter how much one may wish otherwise.
I shall balance out this festivity with as much grim and gray as possible.
yo yo what is it do playboy?
