We struggled with this one because Urban Outfitters is essentially an homage to Alexander Wang and Dov Charney, but a reader sent it in and it is in fact ridiculous, so here you go. While the mere thought of tweed makes us sweat right now, this cozy looking boyfriend blazer was pretty popular last year after Vika wore it down Wang's smoky runway. So Urban's a bit late in knocking it off (and they forgot the zippers). Our tipster attributes its high street debut to recent appearances on NYC Prep. Apparently someone named Jessie's been running around town in it. The show's on fashion's radar, so it's not an impossible conclusion. Regardless of how or why it's being copied and no matter how upset you are you missed out on it the first time, don't buy it. Mostly because copying is bad, but also because one should never spend $100 on something from Urban Outfitters.
