    I point stuff like this out to my daughter all the time. It is an example of why fashion is evil. I can assure you that when Polo first developed the Princeton Soft model, there was no washed denim model. Just stuff like what I described. But then some idiot said "we can't make a tan linen burlap model - we did that last year" so someone said "let's do denim!!!! That's new!!" "No. Let's do 'washed denim' It's like vintage, only clean." And there you have it.

    Is that denim jacket part of J Press's "New American" look? :confused:

    Well, fair warning: anyone who posts a washed denim, flap-patch-pocketed, hook-vented blazer in the good taste thread gets zero foo points forever. I don't care if you die then come back as the Duke of Windsor and post an outfit that makes me cry it's so good. Zero foo points.

    It's J. Press's "The New American Look," by York Street (by J. Press).

    I'd say, but Dopey has diagrams and poetry ready.

    Also - for those watching at home - don't buy the cotton plaid one either. It looks nice in the abstract, but is pretty useless in practice. There isn't much to do with it that will look good.

    It is an offset center vent. The advantage is that, when it opens, it doesn't show your crack. They also tend to have a little more overlap than a typical center vent, so that, even when under stress, it is less likely to be completely open. It tends to be common in the "Ivy League" look. Almost all of J. Press's jackets have these.

    Another solution would be to wear pants.

    Well this is my approach:

    All single vents are fail
    A hook vent is a single vent
    Therefore, a hook vent is fail.

    Clearly you are not yet familiar with J. Press's "The New American Look" by York Street (by J. Press).
