Is This Hideous Enough?


I have to say that this fur vest actually scared the shit out of me.

It’s the Haute Hippie Mongolian Vest, $895.   It’s “the look of the season” so steel yourself.   Why would anyone want to buy this, except to scare people?

Help me understand the buyer at Saks.   She must have been thinking “This vest will appeal to ______________________ because _________________________.”

    This vest will appeal to wealthy, insane persons for so many reasons: its furry back is a potent reminder of lower-primate dominance. Its frontal hem-ruff thinger smacks of the ermine trim of royalty past. And the subtle inbreeding experienced by the upper class, and their would-be imitators, includes some kind of recessive gene that inhibits reasonable taste when the price tag is 3+ figures per item.

    This vest will appeal to Tragic Fashion Boy because it’s black and bold and will distract from his weird face/ears/youth.

    But mostly, it looks like Upscale Caveman to me…

  4. This vest will appeal to fans of Sarah Palin because it looks like a real man went out and killed it for his woman. Just add chewing gum.

    This will appeal to all over-informed fashion victims because it resembles the white yeti worn by Carine Roitfeld at the Fall 09 shows.

    I shouldn’t know that, but I do.

    I can’t wait to show you my coat with the hairy arms.

  7. Jill says:

    Hate this! It reminds me of my dead pedophile uncle and his disgusting hairy back. But, WendyB’s coat is insane, if it’s the one I think she’s gonna show you. I adore it!

    I was kind of thinking along the lines as Make Do Style.

    Ugly bugger.

  10. dust says:

    OK. This will appeal to all blind people, because it’s warm and fluffy.

  11. Deni says:

    I agree with Claw Says (nicely said Mr/s Says), and loved all the remarks. This vest will appeal to those that have heads up ass because they have heads up ass.

  12. Sister Wolf says:

    Claw – Jesus Christ! Sold!

    minzhi – Hahahahaha! (Can’t stop laughing)

    honeypants – Hahahahhaha! (close to hernia) YES, Tragic Fashion Boy should have it.

    Make Do – HAHAHAHAHA!

    annemarie – I do, too. We are hopeless.

    WendyB – I’m sure it’s another category entirely. Hoping, anyway.

    Jill – Hahahahha! Bethenny STAAAAAAHP, you’re killing me!

    arline – You’re getting a Palin vibe, also too?

    dust – HAhahahahhahaha, god that’s funny!

    Deni – Claw is a genius. You commenters have outdone yourselves. I am spent from laughing!

  13. Nyx says:

    Why is it so long? I’d like if it was shorter and I know it is ugly but there are things that I need because they are the ugliest things I see ,this is one of them. I bet it will be sold out in a month.

  14. Mark says:

    Those assholes won’t let the Planet of the Apes vest from nine years just die. Almost as bad as the Prada pubic hair boots.

  15. Sister Wolf says:

    Nyx – You’re right, I’m going to keep an eye on it, to see when’s it’s sold out.

    Mark – The vest + Prada boots = totally killing it.

  16. yuk, hate the cut on the bottom. Doesn’t know what it wants to be, hipster or haute.

  17. Gabriel says:

    this vest will appeal to Rumi becaise it is seriously killing it

  18. Lola says:

    The vest is nice, but it needs a statuesque, interesting looking person, it doesn’t work on the girl next door
