Thakoon Addition straightjacket/cardigan

This cardigan looks like it’s missing a little something, doesn’t it? Or maybe two “somethings”.

Thankfully, though, the straightjacket effect is but an illusion: there are, in fact, two cunningly disguised armholes:

Hmmm. We don’t know about you, but we’re not convinced this a whole lot better, to be honest. Sure, we’re pleased to hear it does have armholes, but, well, they’re a little bit miserly, aren’t they. Don’t look too comfortable. And we’re sure it’s actually a lot more practical than it looks (“All the style of a straight-jacket without any of the pesky restrictions on movement!” Isn’t fashion wonderful?), but we can’t help wondering what would happen if this model suddenly raised both hands in the air.

If, however, you love¬† this, and don’t value movement too much, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s available from Net-a-Porter, where it’s ¬£405. Click here to buy it.

    Just imagine this paired with the penguins trousers of October 4th! That would be Monty Pythonesque, laugh-out funny!

      Laugh-out-loud funny is what I meant to say obviously.

      I had the same thought! Imagine wearing over 2k of clothes and looking like Charlie Chaplin when you walked! Priceless!

    I like it! And I think it is well-paired in the picture.

    I think I’d have to try it on before deciding…If I can move more than these photos suggest, I think I’d like it!
