We’re all familiar with it. Our closet space is limited. Especially coats and jackets take up a lot of room. That’s annoying. On the other hand, no one wants to miss their diverse collection of jackets. Diversity is essential. I mean, who besides skinheads would want to sport a baseball jacket all the time? Or who would want to be wearing their trench coat non-stop (besides streakers)?
JUNYA WATANABE MAN and British brand GLOVERALL now offer a solution to this problem. They combined a Baseball jacket with a Duffle Coat.
This takes getting used to and looks fairly ugly, however creates room in your closet and your wallet. The combination named “Baseball Duffle Jacket” is available at the hefty price tag of 1,989 Euros. That’s even enough for an extra closet.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
