This jacket, by Japanese experimentalists 08sircus, is neither one thing or the other. It’s got elements of a blazer, but it’s also got a bunch of goose down insulation going on. In many ways, it’s like that moment in a werewolf movie, half way through the transformation, you know, when it’s basically a hairier than normal bloke with maybe a bit of a jutting out chin and nose. Or, for the aficionados, it’s like the episode of The Incredible Hulk TV series from 1980 called ‘Prometheus’ where Banner got stuck in mid-metamorphosis between Hulk and man. I expect as soon as you saw this jacket, that’s what you thought of. You sad fuck.
According to retailer Haven, there’s, “laser cut patterning and precision tailoring”, involved in this badness. There’s also goose down, snap buttons and a couple of pockets in the mix to. Although whether that’s a compelling enough offering to justify the required wedge is a question only the interested individual can address.
Personally, I think it looks a bit like you’ve got your jacket on inside out. A look that any enlightened bro will attest, can be straight fire. Paying £677 to look like you’ve got your jacket on inside out? Not so much.
