Friday Caption Contest: Bored Jacket edition

You know how it works. Captions in the comments, plzthx. Do your best for eternal glory and the ability to show off in front of your friends. Coming next week, reader-submitted captionable pix! Email yours to raincoaster at gmail dot com.

Our image for today comes to us from Yanko Design, who saw a niche need for a jacket specifically for lonely people. Lonely people who want to pick up other lonely people. Lonely people who want to pick up other lonely people, yet who need both hands free. This jacket is made entirely from strips of velcro, and as you can see from the image, has practical as well as faintly pathetic applications. This should, if it catches on, put an end to Drop the Baby once and for all!

The lonely jacket

Takkiainen is a jacket for lonely or bored people. It is designed to help the wearer to get in contact with others. Since we brush against each other every day as we move around in the city, we can use our clothes as a medium for meeting people and communicating with them. The jacket is made out of Velcro strips of different widths that have been sewn together side by side to form alternating hook and pile stripes. When these materials touch each other, they grab onto each other. The lonely user can be happily connected with other loners simply by walking around in the jacket.

Even babies can be attached to their parents.

Designer: Aamu Song & Johan Olin

Fashion Friday

It seems there is a new children’s retailer on the scene, called Crazy 8, which is owned by the same company that manufactures Gymboree.  I would equate them with The Children’s Place as far as target pricing.  They’ve got a good selection of clothing for newborns up to tweens.  And, for a limited time due to the launch of their new internet site, all shipping is free.  They’ve got a really good sale going on right now as well. The clothes are fairly stylish for the price, so get going!

Here are some of my favorites.

For girls:

Double-breasted Crop Jacket

 This double-breasted terry jacket is on sale for $16.99.

For boys:

Barn Jacket w/Corduroy collar

This barn jacket with corduroy collar is on sale for only $23.99

For baby girls:

Smocked Terry Hoodie

A smocked terry hoodie on sale for $11.99

For baby boys:

Zipfront Cardigan

A zip front cardigan on sale for $12.99

Happy shopping! Because I know if there is anything we love more than our kids, it just might be a good sale and free shipping!
