You know, I’ve been a bit sexist with these Cliché Shops sections. But I realized recently that one of my favorite shopping related pastimes is putting together elaborate pretend wardrobes for my boyfriend. And as he is very amiable about letting me dress him up (and thinks All Saints is generally “kickass”), I figured it was high time I do a little shopping for the boys. And what with the beauty of online shopping, you guys don’t have to shuffle through malls and stores trying to shop as fast and inconspicuously as humanly possible.
Plus, All Saints is having one of its seasonal sales. Which means:
You Will Look Extremely Cool
You Will Have Shopped In A Painless and Manly Fashion
+ You Will Have More Money For Gas/Video Games/Shows
I don’t care who you are. I don’t care what you usually wear. You need a leather jacket at some point in your life. And this one has a built in hood. It is also a hoodie. Trust me on this.
A little bit of a cuff, a not-too-slouchy, not-too-tight cut, and a classic wash, and voila, the perfect pair of jeans with a tee and sneaks or boots and a coat come winter. And P.S., you really don’t have to wash jeans every time you wear them, according to the experts on jeans (yes, people have that job).
These are the kind of boots that are dangerous. It’s a slippery slope, you see–first you’re walking around in your boots, feeling great because if you kicked something you’re certain it wouldn’t even hurt, which is awesome. Then you think, “You know, these would look even better if I was riding a motorcycle. With a leather jacket. In 1952.” And then you scroll up for your Tannin leather jacket, go to the nearest Harley-Davidson dealer, build a time machine and are forever changed. Be warned.
While this shirt is respectable enough to wear to awkward family functions, it also will serve you quite well with a few buttons undone and the sleeves rolled up while you work on your bike/time machine.
