Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
“Online shopping — oh, no. I didn’t even know what e-commerce was until last week. I like the experience. I like to feel the fur, to smell the tweed. I like the service. I love that you go into Hermès wearing your trainers and they still say, ‘Oh Mr. Galliano, may we brush your shoes?’ … I get people to [tweet] for me. When I was here last, I was only here for four or five days and there were 30,000 calls or whatever you call them … Yeah, there were 30,000.

Originally bought by my best friend in the mid-’90s while she was in high school, if this Calvin Klein Jeans jacket could talk, oh the stories it would tell. Fortunately, for my girlfriend and me, it can’t talk, so our secrets are safe. But the history still shows through its frayed hems, missing buttons, and crinkled body — things that make me love it even more. This jacket has been everywhere from rock concerts to breakup sceness and everything in between. Every fall, I get excited to throw it on, and it never disappoints; the classic lines and military green color are tried and true and it has a relaxed, cool, effortlessly chic vibe. But what about when fall turns into winter, temperatures drop, and lighter jackets get put away until spring? May I suggest DIYing it? Take a look after the jump to see how you can stylishly bring a lighter jacket into winter with you, and then tell us, do you have a favorite article of clothing that’s been with you through thick and thin?
