LET'S BE HONEST WITH OURSELVES

Now www.asos.com (as seen on screen) is one of my favourite online haunts, mainly because I occassionally like to pretend I'm Angelina Jolie. But LOOK at what I found today. Zut alors!

A padded gilet in the style of Jake Gyllenhaal? This is what asos.com like to say after most of their products, a wrap dress in the style of Nicole Kidman, a barely visible white bikini in the style of Pamela Fug Anderson and so on. Usually I'm forgiving of their liberalness with descriptions but when it comes to Jake, please don't copy the artwork. Actually, I guess you haven't this time because this could be any old black padded gilet couldn't it? But it is sold out...and ribbed for his pleasure (sorry).

Perfect over a jumper for a casual, urban look this winter

haha, it's funny that I have one similar in pink colour bought at "The Corte Ingl├ęs".

Ribbed for his pleasure...oh, BPB, now my mind is in the gutter.

Not that it ever wasn't, of course.

I’m sure soon they will have a hot smoking dress in the style of Britpopbaby!

I noticed a while back they have a suit "in the style of Jake Gyllenhaal" too. http://www.asos.com/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=76497&cid=-1

The suit looks alright. The gilet doesn't.

It doesn't seem to be a good copy. The store version looks rigid like a antique lifejacket
Jake's looks like it's down filled

Prophecy Girl said...

What the hell? Jake has a whole wardrobe of stuff he's worn to oblivion and they choose a random vest he wore once? Pshaw.

smurfette said...

i completely agree with tbl-- jake's vest looks soft and comfy, like i just want to bury my face in it (preferable while he's still wearing it, but that's another topic), but the model's version? not so much!

nice find, cina, with the suit! i wonder where that jake pic is from? his hair is sooo light!

I am wearing flip flops! I am wearing aviators! Now all I need is a live strong band!!!

The Bearded Lady said...

Just please refrain from driving while wearing filp flops.
San Pellegrino? drink as much as you please, but if you burp and some italian word comes out, I'd cut back on that.

Kendra said...

TBL: you crack me up, I drank one bottle of San Pellegrino days ago and felt like plunged into a spring near Bergamo!

dani said...

To the anon that said "Now, all I need is a live strong band", I have one and I wear it every day. Next, it will be the aviators!

Ah, Jake rocking that North Face. The logo on the right shoulder is unmistakable. A Nuptse Vest I believe.

Ok, I have a black padded gilet,but I never thought of it as Gyllenhaal style.Maybe because it looks like crap on me and divine on him. Hell,he makes socks look interesting!

I actually have to STEP UP for my mind to be in the gutter!!!

I don't have a LIVESTRONG band but I have a blue band I bought off of ebay that reads "I love Jake Gyllenhaal" that I wear every day (no lie!) :-p

Once again, I am so sad ...

Smurfeyshmoo said...

I don't like the way that other vest model is eyeballing Jake. Back away!

The Bearded Lady said...

^^ Can you blame him? the poor dear is only human.
