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

September 6, 2012


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.
