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".

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.

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.

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!

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!
