My Rick Owens Jacket

Ricky

This is "Ricky" (placed stupidly within cat's reach). I bought it almost year ago. Even though it has gotten a lot wear since then, I'm still slightly embarrassed about having spent 3x the worth of my car on a light jacket. What compelled me to do such a thing? I haven't been able to adequately put it in words.

Until somebody else did. A dearest friend sent me the link this morning, and I was nodding along before even clicking on the url. Ms. Choi captured the feeling precisely.

Have you ever bought anything embarrassingly expensive? I think getting this jacket is my only experience thus far.

  1. Embarrassing? Absolutely. Expensive? In aggregate, yes. I once spent .7x the worth of your car on 100 t-shirts with a critical design flaw.

    1. Fine. Notice the placement of the two circular objects.

    2. Bahahhaah. So good. But...pics or it didn't happen (of the placement of the two circular objects on a human body).

    3. You're in luck. I thought I had erased all traces of this, but I guess not. This is good humility practice for me.
