10. The Homeless Man Jacket

Somewhere a long the lines this morning, you have hit the snooze button three times without even noticing it. By the forth time you finally realized that your alarm wasn’t a drill you actually needed to wake the f up. You often don’t have the comfort of having most mornings start the same, to some it may be a luxury to you its preferred. You run around your apartment getting your things together while brushing you teeth. Jewelry is on, a dab of perfume and over to your closet to decide what jacket to wear. Every Nooner knows the brilliance of having a wide selection of coats and jackets in their repertoire but there is a certain one that holds dear to your heart. It’s the homeless man jacket that you spotted before and definitely after the Fall 2011 Altuzarra show and the many that came after including Elizabeth and James this Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week.

The jacket is not fitted, unlike other fashionable jackets actually warm and kind of similar to the jacket the homeless man wears on the corner with the sign “need money for weed”.  The way you look some mornings after you have gone out, you do bare some similarities to this man more than you actually should but make no mistake the homeless man jacket is a Nooner essential. It should have an oversized hood and a fur or fux fur trim. Its easy to throw on overtop of the BAB or the IDGAF Brunch Sweater because its easily transferable to a lot of outfits unlike most jackets. It’s casual and also serves a downtown air of rebellion, which is a look and feel we always strive for.

Nooner Approved

*Due to it being late in the season many homeless man jackets are on sale or non existent.
