too cool for school


Two more reasons as to why I am inspired to own a varsity/letterman jacket. 1) This too cool for school shot from the twentyseven names AW2011 collection and 2) the too cool for school clip for Infinity Guitars by Sleigh Bells.

    We're getting letterman jackets for year 12, which is very exciting! Well not really, since I won't be wearing it outside of school…
    Ahh, Americanised Australian culture, I love it.

    @Kallie: I guess living it would be quite different. But for the rest of us (read: me) I think the novelty of Americana is just too appealing! haha

    @Barbara: If only my school uniform was this cool!

    @Ella: I know right? Although if I tried I probably would have been breaching some sort of uniform policy haha

    @Liss: Email sent! Thanks for letting me know 🙂

    @Christina: Ohhh that's so cool. Sure beats the Canterbury jerseys we had for year 12.

    I totally almost bought a varsity-style cardigan at Zara the other day. But I think at my school it might just be a little TOO ironic 😛 love the trend nonetheless

    HA! these girls definitely look "too cool for school" – casted just right! i could just imagine walking into the girls toilets back in high school, and they would be hanging out in the back cubicle smoking or writing stuff on the wall…

    too bad us Aussies didn't really sport the whole "club jacket" thing at high school…. only lame senior jerseys haha

    Too bad we had horrid UNIFORMS at school and absolutely no freedom to wear anything different. Even our hair ribbon colour were regulated.
    Hence no GG-style jackets for me 🙁
