Fear not, but the jokes are back. For some of you, this may cause information, so before you close this tab to stand out in the various sections of the comments, listen to us. First, the jackets never disappeared. We’re not saying they were always cool, but the mall brands and Kevin Smith kept the train of jackets that went far beyond the early zenith style. The transition to 2022, and Y2k fashion is back in vogue, including jackets (not to mention their Crocs counterparts typical of the era). Niche Japanese brands such as Kapital and Neighborhood have been selling jackets for years; now luxury players like Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton are also included. Today, the real gods of fashion, such as A $ AP Rocky, Justin Bieber and Tyler, the Creator, are following the trend, following in the footsteps of pioneer jackets pushing envelopes such as Adam Sandler and John Cena.

For you, probably not news that once banal features of the wardrobe of unfashionable patriarchs suddenly became fashionable.

(If you have baggy denim jeans that are too out of place to wear outside, you can even make your own way to a completely unique pair, frayed edges and all that.) The fact is that there are about a million ways. to celebrate their glorious return, so we’ve put together a few of our favorites to help you enjoy the trip.
