You Look Ridiculous: The 'Hug Me Jacket', A New Low

Dude what's up with that one eyebrow?

This is a prototype 'Hug Me Jacket' from designer Si Chan. It makes it look you're being groped by space aliens. Been there, done that, never again (okay, maybe ONCE more).

"Everybody needs love, don't they?" asks emerging menswear designer Si Chan on his blog. Chan says he designed his eccentric kelly green puffer jacket, which features a row of clasped hands running up the front, to make the wearer feel "warm and hugged."


Chan explains that hugging hands are a symbol of what makes it possible for humans to "express love" and "depart from loneliness" and he insists his vision is sweet, not sinister.

Listen: when you have to INSIST your vision was sweet and not creepy you might need to reevaluate if you actually pulled it off or not (because you didn't). In even crazier news, Chan wants to manufacture the jackets and sell them for around $1,200(!!1) as part of his winter collection. Obviously, you won't find one in my closet. A monster that watches me while I sleep? Yes. Possibly two.

Hit the jump for several more shots including another design which looks suspiciously like a rainbow handjob monster that's attached itself to a serial killer.

    Well this guy is 1) crazy to even make a coat so hidiously bulky 2) crazier to think it's worth $1200.00 and 3) most ludicrous designer ever for the rainbow hand frock thing? I guess lady gaga already bought out the line and thats why he's not worried about the over charge.

  • Robert Van Dyke

    the shoes are worse than the jacket

  • ZomBBombeR

    Not by much but I agree lol.

    "Chan explains that hugging hands are a symbol of what makes it possible for humans to "express love" and "depart from loneliness""

    Then why don't we just try to become more loving as a society? This "coat" seems very singular in idea and use. If we want people around us to see a symbol of humans expressing love and departing from loneliness then why don't we do that with each other rather than wearing some stupid hipster clothing that for the most part is worthless.

    Now...with all that said....I am willing to give free hugs to anyone who is needing one today. And by anyone I mean women....and by women I mean women with big boobs.
