From an intent perspective, is there much difference between this and the ‘zany’ office party tie? I mean, sure, this star-struck bomber is by none-more-cool denim hooligans Kapital and your typical look-at-me neck accessory comes from the Disney store. But is the intent, that of standing out, that of using clothing to suggest a personal sense of fun, kind of the same? Is this jacket actually a bit David Brent?
If you can get past the bombastic showmanship, it’s actually a beautiful thing. French cloth linen, indigo dyed, obviously made in Japan. But it’s £375 quid. So be of no doubt, the wearer’s commitment to the piece would be represented both through their propensity towards self-aggrandisement and their complete fiscal irresponsibly.
But is that a bad thing? I mean, what harm are you really doing, lording about in a starry jacket? I dunno. If you want answers, it’ll cost you more. All I’d suggest is maybe don’t pair it with a pair of Daffy Duck socks. Might be one step too far.
