If you’re in the market for an elegantly understated and wildly expensive blue (but non-denim) jacket from the other side of the planet, then look no further than this Indigo Short Jacket from Blue Blue Japan. It’s quietly beautiful, costs 500 USD, and hails from Japan -- hence the company name. If your outerwear collection is more valuable than your Roth IRA, I urge you to purchase this piece, if only to keep continuity in your poor financial decision-making. Take that fat tax refund -- a.k.a. the interest-free loan you gave to the United States government -- and spend it on something that makes you (and by “you”, I mean me) happy. Mutual funds will be there tomorrow. This jacket might sell out today. Are you ready to commit yourself to the cruel grip of FOMO for the rest of your time on this mortal coil? Because that’s exactly what you’ll be doing if you miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity. Maybe you like the feeling of unrelenting regret. To each his own. Given that we live in a violently confusing world, festooned with all the trappings of a nascent dystopia, I refused to be surprised by even the most inconceivable of occurrences. Indeed, I simply stand here with a delightfully bemused look on my face, looking like a baffled Mark Wahlberg, which, now that I think of it, is actually just regular Mark Wahlberg. Marky Mark always looks super fucking perplexed, does he not? He even looks perplexed when he’s doing something badass, like racing a Mini Cooper along the Los Angeles River (spoilers for The Perfect Storm) or fatally shooting Matt Damon (spoilers for Entourage). I think I’m going to spend the rest of the evening watching the video (that’s a visual to all you gosh darn whippersnappers) for “Wildside” on repeat. That seems like a sensible application of my time. I need to learn how to hang out on school bleachers, shirtless and ostensibly unemployed. That sounds like the life. Word to the Funky Bunch -RB
