Before | The Printed Jacket

Because I know nothing brightens your day quite like some “before” shot ugliness, I present to you this specimen, which seems like it must be from the early ’90s.


It’s just so ridiculous, so boxy, so outrageously unflattering, I had to post it twice (I want to make sure you really get a chance to take it all in).


You want more? I could keep going. But instead I’ll let you contemplate what it’s going to look like after it’s been tailored.

You’re welcome.

P.S. Nothing brightens my day quite like having your face on The Anthology’s Facebook page. So like it, will ya?

P.P.S. Take a look at some of The Anthology’s worst “before” shots of all time here. And here. Oh, and also here.
