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.
