Things that make you go ‘hmmm’: the convertible jacket

Convertible_jacket

Now, we’re not calling this a crime of fashion, exactly – there’s nothing particularly objectionable about it after all, but it does make us scratch our heads a little, and wonder: why would you want a convertible jacket? Or, more to the point: why would you want a jacket that converts in this particular way? Because when you zip off the bottom half (yes, there is a zip securing bottom to top), you’re left with what basically amounts to a shrug-jacket. And a cold belly.

This is $135.90 at Nordstrom. Tell us, though: would you buy it?

    if it were cheaper, sure i would.
    it can be worn on a cold fall day or a warmer spring day. this is more of a year round jacket i think, because of the convertible feature.
    i like it!

    Sure I would wear it, if it were cheaper!
    Because of the convertible feature, it becomes a year round piece instead of just fall or just spring.
    Plus its cute both ways!
    love it.

    I do like it! In general, I love how those half-cropped articles accentuate my waist, and this is cute in both its forms.

    I don’t know. Something about it just seems … young. Like it might look a bit silly on anyone over 21.

    I’d wear it. I love short cardigans actually, so this would be nice.

    in ‘converted mode’ it looks exactly like a jacket with a chunk missing off the bottom
