New It Jacket About to Drop


It has now been confirmed that this jacket from Topshop is killing it. That means you can look forward to a slew of fashion bloggers modeling this item with hands-to-face.   Too bad if you don’t like money fur or even fake monkey fur.   Girls will be stampeding to get at this jacket. Stand back!

Now, how do you feel about the word “drop” when used in this context?   I personally cannot stand it, but it’s usage is increasing by the minute. I didn’t like it when new records were about to drop, and I like it even less with fashion.   The word “drop” is just wrong, unless a stork drops the records or jackets like a new baby.   Drop is better when preceding the word “dead.”   Why can’t we just say “it arrives on August 28” instead of “it drops?”

I chose August 28 because it’s my birthday! Yay for me!   If you want to make me happy, you can help me compile a decent Hit List .   I’m deferring to those who inexplicably don’t want to kill Bono, so I’ll be starting off with Sting, Ben Stiller, and Lou Dobbs.

Here’s an appealing version of the It Jacket, by surrealist photographer Madame Peripetie, who has a masters degree in Applied Linguistics. I have to think she doesn’t like “drop” either.

    Does the Hit List have to be famous people? Can I put Jennifer Anniston on there? She annoys me. And could we consider Nicholas Cage too, because he’s a twat?

  2. Helena says:

    Oh my goodness, they’ve killed Chewbacca!

  3. andrea says:

    Are they taking pre-orders??? It would be a great birthday gift to myself- 56 on Aug 6!

  4. Awh my husband’s birthday is on the 29th. I’ll tell him I’m celebrating yours if he doesn’t like his pressies!

  5. dust says:

    Demi Moore not on the list….why?

  6. WendyB says:

    I assure you I won’t be getting this one. Because I already have THIS ONE:


  7. K-Line says:

    Dropping is only good inasmuch as it relates to acid 🙂

  8. OMGGMAB says:

    I’m more concerned that she has apparently forgotten to put on her pants. Maybe an attempt to look more like a baboon. When she turns around, we may see pink hiney peeking through the fur. Who knows what might be dropping then?

  9. I don’t like to highlight my simian roots, so I won’t be buying that jacket when it drops.
    As for the hit list, I second Jennifer Aniston and would like to add Amy Adams? Her perkiness annoys me.

  10. Mark says:

    Everyone on “The Hills.”

  11. arline says:

    I think I will let this one drop.

    I’m surprised that you did not put Madonna on the list.

  12. Ann says:

    The verb “drop” when used in the above context helps no one.

    I second The Hills cast nomination, and will give Aniston her third recommendation. This list can also include Eric Clapton, unless that’s too obvious? Oh, and Brooke Hogan.

  13. Andra says:

    Are you all ignoring the lovely Mrs Palin or is she just too obvious?

  14. Bex says:

    Yep, drop it like it’s hot. Or does that not mean the same thing? I dunno, kids and their saying these days.

  15. Bex says:

    Also can you add Adam Sandler to that list? Thank you.

  16. Sister Wolf says:

    Queen Michelle – Yep, Aniston needs to die, it would be doing her a favor.

    Helena – HAHAHAHA!

    andrea – Get a pic of you in that jacket and I will post it!

    Make Do -Ask him if we can celebrate together.

    dust – What’s wrong with me, of course Demi Moore!

    WEndyB- Different thing entirely. Very Morticia of you.

    K-Line – HAHA, perish the thought of dropping more acid!

    OMGGMAB – AH, god, baboon is very appropriate here.

    Iheartfashion – Have you seen Amy Adams in “Junebug?” She was so poignant.

    Mark – Okay, but they are one person, right?

    arline – Madonna is in a separate category. She is the bane of my existence.

    Ann – Clapton, check. Brooke “I’m a Man, Really” Hogan, check.

    Andra – Separate category!

    Bex – YES, jesus, Adam Sandler=Ben Stiller, I can’t even differentiate.

    1. Rachel zoe.

    2. anyone who quotes anchorman.

    3. and can we just erase jessica simpson’s entire existence as opposed to shooting her? that might be more convenient (though it would be SO satisfying and totally worth it to shoot rachel zoe in her gigantic wrinkled bobble head.)

  18. WendyB says:

    When I wear my coat, I’m going to constantly touch my face, of course.

  19. Sister Wolf says:

    ali – Do people quote Anchorman?!?!?!?! That’s awful!!!!! But Rachel Zoe, I just signed up for her newsletter, can we wait a bit on her?

    WendyB – Duh.

  20. Hey, I’m totally on board with Bono. And he has to go to a Sartre hell where everyone’s wearing those stupid sunglasses.

  21. Josephine says:

    Can I just say that this is an awful coat? positively disgusting. A girl (“dumb sorority girl,” no less) walked into my law class last semester wearing a grey vest that looked a lot like this and everyone’s jaws just sort of dropped… REALLY? really? you’re wearing THAT?

    Just because you’ve got four hooves doesn’t mean you have to follow after the Topshop stampede. (H&M that goes for you, too!)
