The great thing about this is that you can check for movie listings on your sleeve while you’re on the subway.
His necklace looks like it’s made out of novelty green popcorn. I can’t even comment on the jacket.
finally something for the man who has everything else
The red and green paper chain necklace would go awesome with this.
um…. is that electrical tape?
What? Really? Oh hell, I was skeptic, but by now enough bull has been shown here(and sold) that I think this is the perfect time to open an etsy shop for the horrible sewing disasters I have made. Because even those are better than newspaper iron ons.
There’s a guy who sits on the stoop outside my office waving at pigeons and this asshole totally ripped off his shirt idea. Mind you, my guy goes all the way with newspaper pants to match.
he HAS to have a mullet
Why the hell why?
Say, this blazer’s got class. And by that I mean that the seller pasted the word “class” directly on it.
that is the fugliest ensemble i have seen…
@ #6- agreed! the only time newspaper is fashionable is if you are homeless and need to just keep warm at night
So haute couture! I just haven’t figured out yet who the specific customer would be for a black tie affair… the homeless man around the corner, or the outdoors-man-type.
That would have to be one skinny-shouldered guy. Even my thin husband who is 6′ wears a 42 jacket.

You could wear this to cocktail waitress……
on an oil rig.
@ #10 ThisJustMakesMeSad: I think it’s for the douche on your holiday gift list.
“…newspaper patches are fragile, must be dry cleaned…”
Hey hipster doofus, next time why don’t you just sew on a coupon for free dry cleaning.
How long before this sells, do you think? Any bets? I’m just sure someone is going to snatch this crap up. Sadly, it looks like some of the outfits I saw around art school.
Well, thank god this Christmas candle meets the Kosher Certification criteria. I’d hate to be stuck with a Christmas candle that wasn’t Torah-certified. בהחלט!
Having read the seller’s bio I could speculate as to why a fashion stylist would relocate from LA to Nashville, but a picture speaks louder than words.
am i to assume the fragile newspaper patches are, in fact, actual newspaper?
what happens if it rains? will it melt?
what if he bumps into a big bucket of watery-glue solution a la 3 stooges? is it paper mache just waiting to dry?
why would anyone spend $120.00 on an item of clothing that, by definition, is destined to fail?
It’s not often that I click on something while on the phone and exclaim “holy shit, that’s hideous!” Sorry Mom!
My son wants to go to prom this year.
We may have found a suit jacket! He’ll be the hippest cat at the prom!
And when his date leaves him for wearing this weird-ass thing, he’ll have reading material to keep him entertained.
I think the newspaper’s purpose is for when you’re in a public restroom and all the paper is gone.
Any port in a storm!
How to look like a Total Douche for the bargain price of only $120.
FWIW, by the way, Nashville has plenty of ACTUAL stylists, and plenty of celebs (mostly singers) who live there. So, in concept, it might have been a great move. In reality, though, I don’t think we’re going to be seeing Rascall Flatts sporting this particular brand of hobo chic anytime soon.
Oof, pardon me, I meant to comment on the advent calendar item. Ahem.
Some people will do anything for a BUCK…..
A hunting jacket for the suicidal.
I’m thinking that this person made this just to make Regretsy because most of her stuff is actually lovely. Like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29354991
@Dynomoose, you’re right, that black halter top is really quite pretty and very sexy. Too bad you have to GUESS what freaking size it is, what measurements it would fit, the fabric content, and cleaning instructions. And these people wonder why they can’t sell their shit. DUH.
Dynomoose – what about this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8775669 looks like she took a moth-eaten jacket from the thrift store and ripped it to “hide” the holes… craptasticle.
#27 HermesGoddess : I just assumed size 2 or smaller and moved on.
#28 Saraf : eGADS! Yeah, that is pretty bad. Strange how some of her stuff looks beautiful and well made and some looks like it was pieced together by a drunk preschooler.
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8129066 This is probably pretty, but who can tell with the one, crappy, hunched over side shot?
#26 Dynomoose : It was listed on August 16th…pre-Regretsy.
I just don’t understand what the deer and the newspaper clippings have to do with each other. I mean how do you decide “golly gee what goes with the newspaper clippings…I know, a buck?”
If this is what the front looks like, I shudder to think what must be on the back. Surely it wasn’t left untouched.
Oh deer god…
Having worked in a dry cleaners for a time I can say with certainty that whoever buys this is going to be made fun of relentlessly by the cleaners
“Strings of leather sewn from a chocker style leather band fastened with metal snap.”
What is a Chocker? Is that a new breed of chickens that have stringy feathers?
#35- I think it has something to do with a newspaper costing a buck.
#15 methuselah :
@ #10 ThisJustMakesMeSad: I think it’s for the douche on your holiday gift list.
Whoops! Looks like my comment struck close to home…
Wow – a hundred and 20 bucks for a used blazer with strips of electrical tape, fabric remnants and newspaper clippings… if this sells then i am certainly going into the Etsy business selling high priced garbage.
and WTF is on the left sleeve? it looks like he leaned into a puddle of baby poop?
The lapel adornments look to be done by the same person who striped the candy canes on the skull sweater.
At least it’s not a patch of the roadkill deer. I wonder if the pocket silk is included – it really ties the piece together.
I don’t think that’s even electrical tape…..the lines aren’t even the same size on the other lapel! I’m not into fashion at all, but this, well, maybe a clown would wear it……maybe.
#45- I see what you mean. I do like the subtle use of flannel, it really works with this as well. However, I would like to see a bullseye or perhaps a target shirt worn underneath this before I could ever consider purchasing it.
Bubba’s Got a Hot Glue Gun!!!!!
Looks like he wiped his nose on the sleeve, Ralph Wiggum style.
@ #41 ThisJustMakesMeSad :
I don’t understand your comment. My earlier reply was just an add-on to your list of potential customers. It wasn’t directed at you, and if it struck you that way, my poor wording is to blame. My first thought had been “Only a douche would wear this” and that’s all I meant by my comment. I would never insult another Regretsy poster and I am sorry if I have insulted you.
I think they got the jacket at a Goodwill Store.. then a little rug-rat probably puked up on it and what not and the owner said.. Hmm.. Lets see what I can put on here to hide it? Oh.. I know.. I’ll just use some rubber cement and some Newspaper.. Aww hell this looks like shit. Goodwill will never take it back now.
Oh I know I’ll sell it on Etsy as Couture. People on there will buy anything.
Has this jackass ever tried to dry clean newspaper? Seriously?
Can I just purchase the green pooka shell necklace? My man could carry that look off, no prob.
@ #50 methuselah
LOL! Oh crap, the apology is all mine. I thought you were implying that the blazer would be perfect for my gift list.
So sorry! No hard feelings I hope
The red semi felt shirt is even better. Looks like when my dog attacked the Christmas tree skirt, half digested it, and then vomitted.
@ #54 ThisJustMakesMeSad :
No hard feelings at all, I was just mortified I had posted so clumsily as to cause a misunderstanding. I blame a lack of coffee and promise not to post again unless properly caffeinated.
It’s amazing how many hipster doofus etsians think dry cleaning is a magical no-touch wash-away-your-tears process.
#56 methuselah :
It’s all good! Now we can have a good laugh about it along with all the whimsical madness we find on this site
I get it now! This is the one jacket you can wear to your hunting club, press conference, child rearing seminar, homeless shelter volunteering, and electrician’s exam. All the bases are covered folks!
#55…lmao, good grief–perfectly described.
What’s next? Paper mache underwear that needs dry cleaning?
I think there actually were paper dresses back in the 60s, with Andy Warhol Campbell Soup cans printed on them and such — but I believe the whole deal with those is they were disposable. Part of the whole ‘pop art’ deal if I recall correctly.
Gluing scraps of fragile ‘dry clean only’ Sunday paper onto a $3 Goodwill jacket, that’s more like ‘HIPSTER FAIL.’
I’ve seen dresses made from toilet paper (no kidding) that looked a shit load better than this. This is just a waste. Plain and simple.
I like how the pocket scarf matches the t-shirt. A lot of thought went into the staging of the photograph.
You would definitely get caught in the headlights in this thing.
If I were pissed at my husband I would buy him this for Christmas. Do you think it is real newspaper? What a way to recycle newspapers.
Too bad the deer isn’t on the trousers. That would clear the way for some tacky ‘all you can eat under a buck’ jokes.
Can you imagine what your dry cleaner would say to you when you haul this piece of garbage onto the counter?
You can’t polish a turd and you can’t dry clean old wads of newspaper and electrical tape…
Be honest-how many of you would beat the hell out of this guy if you saw him in this on the street?
It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween costumes.
I’ve made a vow. If I ever want to sell anything that’s dry clean only, I’m gonna take it to a dry cleaner and confirm that shit.
I love putting patches on my clothes, but NEWSPAPER patches!? This is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard of. Good luck washing it. The “collage” of crap on here doesn’t even have a theme…just random shit, like most of the stuff that winds up on regretsy.
