Win Some Acne

by Leandra Medine
May 26, 2011
The brand, sillies. Not the pimples.
Dear Man Repellers,
Today, I fly away. In light of a brief trip I must make over the Atlantic Ocean, I will most likely have limited computer access between right now and Tuesday. That means limited blog posts, if any. And that means angry faces. Right? Fear not. Don’t get down on the lack of labia sprinkling its folds across this forum, instead, indulge in a giveaway. feels your pain and thus in cahoots with those lovely lasses, we’re giving you a suede Acne motorcycle jacket. A suAcnket. Yes that’s right, I’m buying your affection…but it’s not a bribe.
Now, below find some photos of myself moseying around the high line, making a conscious effort not to photograph on the high line because…I’m not in a sequined mini skirt. And if I’m going to go the traditional style blogger route, I’m going all the way. Stay tuned fo’dat.
 That’s me walking. I feel like I’m telling about a trip using photographic proofs of the things I did. Anyone with me on this one?
 That’s me looking sexy sally standing against the dissection between a brick wall and yellow garage door. Just kidding, it’s blue. Just kidding it’s green, just kidding, just kidding.
OMFG, you are such a label whore. But at least you know I’m not faking you out. Authenticity, yeah.
bracelets: DANNIJO. This is my wrist. It can tell time.
bracelets: Mr. Kate. This is my other wrist, it can flex and hold things.
Like this rad graduation gift I bought for myself, for example. (purse: Alexander Wang.)
Really rad graduation gift.
This is my neck. (necklaces: Jack Vartanian, DANNIJO.) I’m not a scorpio. 
I am, however…
Straight up weird. 
Now, let’s talk a little bit about this jacket. 
dress: Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony, jacket: Acne, sunglasses: Celine
It’s over-sized and so even when wind tries its hardest to induce a Britney, it can’t. Do you know what  Britney is? I’ll just tell you: Vaginal exposure, named after Britney Spears circa multiple car exitings, hoo-ha flashings, 2006.
As you can see, the jacket also induces a very serious giggle. This might because it’s so light weight. Summer layering, anyone? Me. Me.
sneakers: Superga
And an apprehension to walk point toe first. It’s all about your heel this season. That’s all I’m saying.
And finally:
 It’s just plain old cool. Bikes practically wheel themselves over to behind it in order to fall into photo frames.
And now, in order to win the jacket and emulate the sentiments photographed above, here’s what you have to do:
3. You decide
4. In the comments below, leave your twitter handle, name and e-mail address. Proceed to explain what you’ll do with the jacket. (Whether it be wear on body, tie as turban, use as dinner plate, put out fires, etc)
5.  Do lunges. Look, guys. Exercise is important.
6. Wait until Tuesday at 11AM when we announce the winner on Twitter. You know this means you should likely be following me too. 
Immediate success, contest closed early if…

You can gel your hair to look like this and you promise to walk around styled as such for 24 hours. Yes, you walk for 24 hours.

Alright now, be back soon! I miss you already! Bye! 
AND, OMFG, have a look at the rest of my summer lusts here.

    If that jacket were mine all mine i'd wear it inside out so everyone could see that I was cool and owned an Acne jacket. nah, just kidding, i'd probably just end up wearing it daily and eventually need to buy loads of suede cleaning products . . . because i'm a messy eater.

    SHUT UP SHUT UP. I love this. Absolutely love this. I'd follow MyTheresa on Twitter, but that link didn't work! But it's okay, I found them through the site.
    If I won… I'd freaking WEAR the jacket all over town and just show off its wonderfulness.

  • Holly

    whoopsie poopsie, forgot my email

    I'm following! "hollygoeslight" is my handle and is my email.

    I plan to wear the jacket… (on my head) while I feel the burn in my lunging thighs.

    ::fingers crossed::

    If the jacket were mine I'd wear it all hours of the day and night, with a dress, with a skirt, NAKED, on a mountain, under the table, on the pot, whatevs. I love it- following both of y'all and cant wait to hear who wins!

    I plan on wearing this gorgeous suede piece of art as only the highest end of snuggies at my summer job as a marketing coordinator at Magaschoni. I will layer this over my yummy uniform of summer cashmere.

    Oh yeah, I'll also run around midtown/flatiron like the cray cray person that I am just oozing man repellent.

    Whoever said you can't wear suede and cashmere in the summer clearly doesn't understand our kind.

    If i get the jacket i'm going to dress up as a bull in the street and get my friend to hold the jacket to replicate a classic bullfighting scene. weird? yup.

  • little black cat

    Dear Man Repeller,
    I feel the greatest way to utilise this jacket is one of 3 ways: a) wear back-to-front for a little straightjacket-chic (helped by the oh-so-now sanitarium-cool colour); b) an artistic draping over a bookshelf for beauty, intellect and tactile strokiness in one; c) create inner structure with twigs and hang in a tree as a home for birds that are too cool to build their own nests.

    shit happens when I party naked all the time…so Im thinking about partying with clothes on. The only thing that can compete with my nakedness, and feels like second skin, is this Acne Jacket =D


  • Makens

    The link to follow My Theresa on Twitter doesn't work. Therefore, I'd use said jacket to travel back in time and warn you before you created it. This is all based on the assumption that a suede jacket made by crafty Swedes must have some time traveling powers – the Delorean of fashion, perhaps?

    If this jacket were mine, I would take it out to d.a.n.c.e. all f***ing night long.

  • katems

    I would wear the awesome Acne jacket as a cape, using it's awesome superpowers to bike around, coat flapping behind me, and rescue kitties from trees and small children from the dangers of unhealthy eating by sacrificing myself and eating their ice cream truck treats (all the while doing lunges to demonstrate proper exercise and posture). I would give them the kitties so that they wouldn't be sad. The Acne jacket would shine with fabulousness and good karma.

  • kelly marie


    i'd make my own gold studs to punk that jacket out right then ride my bike* all over town blaring bad to the bone from a boombox.

    *bicycle, not motorcycle. that's why it's funny :)

    and i will send you video.

    If the jacket were to become my own pride and joy, it would be subjected to a variety of scandalous ensembles and adventures, including but not limited to the banana socks, fuck me pumps, and itty bitty minis my mamas so proud of.

  • Jen

    anything that stops a britney moment is good in my books!

    i would give it to britney:

    or i would wear it with old school addidas tearaways. channeling left eye (RIP babygurl):,,20449764_20176282_20400492,00.html

    cause nothing says man-getter more than a tough broad in track pants who ain't afraid to get cuh-razay.

  • the style crusader

    Ok… this is the best freagin giveaway ever. And yes, that means it's EVEN better than the time I won a pair of Reebok Easytone trainers that turned out to a helluva pain to walk in (take note: extra difficulties in staying balanced are unnecessary).

    Yes, so I'd definitely like to enter… and if I won this jacket I would probably do everything with it. You see, it's just so darn versatile. I'd wear it everyday over everything… OKKK… I probably wouldn't wear it EVERY day. But I would wear it…. and use it as a cushion for under my head when lying by the lake, and swing it in my friend's faces to make them feel jealous (then offer to let them borrow it). I'd try to fasten it into a kite to show off to everyone… and when that wouldn't work I'd probably just wear it again.

    Omggg… that's all from me.

    if this jacket was mine i'd wear it through the year because it's so cool it transcends all hot or cold weather!

  • Al

    Boringly wearing it to go outside. Because I live in Belgium and you don't know what wind is until you don't go to Benelux. So I definitely need a jacket (because I don't have any… uh?..). But the Acne-r the better.

    And I don't do lunges, too lazy I'm sorry, I prefer to continue to repel.

    But one thing: in the totally unlikely case I win the jacket (it's more likely I transform into Taylor Tomasi Hill right here right now), can you send me over also your jewels please? Oh, and your bag. Thanks.

    Hugs! ;D

    If that jacket were all mine i'd wear it to aaaall the supercool evening open-air concerts i'll go to this summer (because i'm from italy, YES, but from a part of italy which is pretty far from the sea and the beach-y weather… in the evening it can be pretty cold damn' :/). this jacket has a rock&roll; vibe which i ADORE :)
    but i think i'd wear it every day, on any occasion, because it's SO gorgeous

    lunges…..are hard to do…when you're out of shape. but its worth it for this lovely jacket nnnngaaaaahh!!

    I'd wear this jacket over my husband's head, because he is one ugly mother funner. There should be a disclaimer on this blog stating that manrepellers only attract men that look like Woody Allen. Thank Goodness I don't have any adopted children. The Man getters might get all the hotties, but my husband is rich as crap and can afford all the Proenza Schouler my heart desires. Ok, I may have made that up or I wouldn't be entering a contest to win a free jacket, he has a huge ding dong though. Have I shared too much?

    If I won this jacket… my god, I'd be so happy! I love Acne and this jacket is pure magic, simple, chic and cool! I love how you wear it!
    And yes, I would probably wear the jacket on a daily bases.

  • Samantha


    I would do all of the above with that jacket. Plus lunges. Stylish Acne Jacket Lunges.

  • nicole myles


    & i think it's!/mytheresa_com and not the link you posted. :)

    i would follow in yr footsteps and frolic around chelsea galleries in it, wear it while it's still a little chilly coming home from dinner parties & probably too far into the summer because it's too beautiful to stop petting.

  • Ruffled Snob

    Twitter @ruffledsnob

    I would probably wear that Jacket as a baby bjorn for my kids. They are 4 and 20 months (never too old to be strapped on to their mom I suppose) but I am guessing I could get them inside of it with just enough room for their heads to stick out. The zipping process may cause us to make faces- like the ones in your post here. But in the end I think we could all walk around happy in it.

    Ummm the answer is so obvious I will use this jacket TO REPELL dudes with it's magical weener shrinking powers!!!!!!!!!!!! We're gonna run this town is what we're going to do.

    When I'm not wearing this jacket, I will use it to cover the mouse hole in the corner of my closet. The mouse doesn't respect duct-tape,(or plaster, for that matter) and I feel too guilty to use a trap, but it WILL, I'm sure, respect labels. (As the self-respecting city mouse that it is.)

  • Anonymous

    I'd MacGyver that shit and use its rain repelling (on top of man repelling, obvs) properties as a make-shift tent for when I graduate school.

    (Because everyone knows journalism majors just don't do proper housing)

    Twitter's @sofiamarielg, email's

    Get at me!

  • Twigart


    Ooh hoo hoo…. i would wear it on the pier in Bournemouth whilst eating ice-cream, hang it at the end of the local swimming pool to improve my lap time, wear it down the street shouting "repel this man squib!', wrap it round kittens to hear their soft mewing, dance disco in the local supermarket ……… and so much more!

    I'd wear this jacket to do lunges.
    And squats.
    But not any sort of hot yoga, because sweat and suede is just…ew.

  • Anonymous

    Yes please to slouchy repeller-wear for summer. I am road-tripping this summer so the jacket would likely be used as a pillow, picnic blanket, prop for road-side photo-shoots and disguise to make me look legit when wandering into biker bars looking for refreshment (pretty sure all bikers are wearing tan suede this season).

  • Grace

    twitter @graceticehurst
    I'd wear the jacket every day until the arms fell off then I'd wear it as a super cool acne gilet.
    Plus I need it more than you americans in your sunny climate, i've got a typical rainy english summer to contend with!

  • Delfina P

    OOOH It's my first trip to NY, and all I brought is a lightly packed suitcase. I'd wear this around town, trying to fill, oh so humbly, a little of the repeller void you create with your departure to the MR world capital.

    If your giving heart is so generous, a repeller in the making would love to give this jacket a home and a warm body to fill it in, and in about a month, a nice trip to Argentina, where i'll proceed to man repel internationally in Buenos Aires.

    Have a great trip, congratulations on graduating!!

    with this jacket i would indeed wear some cut off vintage wranglers, some celinish platforms and i would most likely pick up some long haired babes. im pretty sure of it.

  • analeigh

    I will put my legs in the arms of the jacket, and tie the bottom of the jacket around my waist. I'll wear it with a tan suede tank top and tan suede booties so I am tan suede on tan suede on tan suede on snow white butt cheeks and walk around the city MOONING everyone. Just kidding. I'll wear it like a normal jacket and tell everyone how I scored the awesome jacket. Just Kidding I'll wear it like a diaper. Just kidding I won't. Just kidding I might. Just kidding just kidding just kidding.

    If that jacket were mine I would layer it over everything while wearing it in public. Possibly inside-out so that everyone will think I'm cool, so cool that I change how a garment is supposed to be worn, and they'll think I'm even cooler when they see it is Acne. When repelling, I will drape it over my back, puff it up with pillows and pretend I'm a camel. Because when one has drapey camel-coloured jackets, that is what one does.

    Amazing. I'd wear it on dates with my brothers and dog and dad (b/c let's face it, those are the only dates I'm going to get and I just sent my Dad flowers in the shape of a dog from my dog at his office…I think that merits a date- but not the Arkansas kind- don't you?)

    Misery, thy name is men.

    I have a confession to make. It's really hard to say it, but I have to get it off my chest, so I'm just going to come out with it… I'm a man getter.

    All my life I have been wrapped up in trying to look cute and feminine. I style myself well, and I wear what I like. I don't dress for anyone else but myself… but men seem to think differently.

    No, Mr. Falls-off-his-bike-watching-me-run-past-on-my-jog, you are not luring me in with your gawking stares. Not a chance in hell, Sir Screams-profane-suggestions-out-his-car-window-as-I-grab-a-midnight-pizza, I will not flag down your car so we can have a chat and get to know each other. Get the fuck away from me, Colonel grabs-my-ass-as-he-walks-past-thinking-I-will-either-not-notice-or-find-it-endearing, this is happening all too fast and I am not interested in your forwardness.

    If I never hear another cat call or whistle or some guy scream "Hey-o Blondie!" again, it will be too soon.

    That's why your blog is so inspirational, but so unattainable. I look at your outfits, and think, "Wow, she looks adorable AND she isn't going to be cornered on the Metro by a guy asking to buy her a draaaank." But I struggle to think how I can pull it off.

    If I win this contest, you will be providing me with the tools (or rather, the jacket) I need to begin my spell of man-repelling. This jacket will be my stepping stone into a future filled with peaceful runs in the park and nights out with my friends that don't include having to intimidate many men with my brute strength (all 5'3'' of me) after an inappropriate comment. I also promise to love and care for this jacket as if it were my own young, birthed straight out of my vagina that longs to not be an object of desire.

    You must help me. I need you… and that jacket. My sanity depends on it.

    I will donate this jacket to feed needy kids in Africa. I will cut it up into bite-sized pieces and prance around Africa, giving children free fabric meals. They will cry tears of joy to know that they are eating something as beautiful as an Acne jacket. Because I'm nothing if not charitable.

    But in reality I would wear this jacket all day every day. I'd wear it to sleep, too. The only times I'd take the divine fabric off my body is when I need to shower and it needs to be washed, and even then we will hold hands/sleeves through those traumatic times.

  • Catherine


    If that jacket were mine, I'd feel like a camel. Sassiest ungulate this side of the Gobi Desert.

  • lindsay


    I would wear it to a movie, I would wear it to a show.
    I would feel all kinds of groovy, it would make my pale skin glow.

    I would wear it out to brunch, I would wear it in the park.
    I would wear it with a scrunch(ie), I would wear it in the dark.

    I would wear it in a storm, I would wear it with a hat.
    It would caress my girlish form, it would match my baseball bat.

    I would wear that jacket everyday,
    I hope that's what this poem conveys.

    If bestowed the honor of this jacket, I would layer it over my already layered outfits, use it to frame my mixed prints and highlight my legs ripe from lunging (which will no doubt be supported by my version of your Leopard print Miu Mius). Top knot, birth control glasses and sharp point metal jewelry in tact, I will repel with the best of them!

    …or use it as cape when I karaoke.

    I would LIVE in this jacket. Literally live in it. Like make a tent of it and sit in there like the cash-poor intern I am (homeless chic!) May roast marshmallows, but will take care to avoid contact with actual jacket, as detailing is SUPERB and needs no sugary accents.

    Man Repeller, have you ever been to our nation's capital? Because that is where I live and repelling down here is a leeeetle different than repelling in NYC. The male species down here is scared off by anything that isn't Ralph Lauren, JCrew, Ann Taylor, etc. They have no idea what other brands are. Throw some Acne at them and game over fo shizz. Most importantly I'd wear this jacket with the security badge I have to wear all day every day while at work. Security badge + Acne jacket = special agent repeller.

    About the Jacket:
    Have YOU ever been to Chicago? I know people say it's called the Windy City because of the politics, but above that, it is outrageously windy. I will simply WEAR the jacket. Many a Britney has been seen while I've been innocently standing near my work at Wabash and Jackson (the windy-est corner in Chicago see this article

    Have you ever seen that Blustery Day Winnie the Pooh episode? It didn't even frighten me as a child, because I thought of it as a normal day.Watch:

    You don't want me to end up like piglet do you? Frankly, i need that jacket. It will save my career (no more flashing) AND will save my skin (45 degrees at the end of may… argh).

    Also tomorrow is my birthday. so yeah thats gotta count for something.

    thanks for being such a nourishing daily diversion!

    Brittany Tomren,

    I'd probably call in sick every day of the week ( any excuse really), read manrepeller in the morning and then waltz around town in the jacket for the rest of the day. any stranger would know that I was wearing the acne jacket because id tell them. coffee lines, at the gym whereeva. EVERYONE would know. at least in my small town of 30,000. xoxo. how lovely would that be.

    What I'd do with the jacket? That's a tough one, wouldn't the question better be, what NOT to do with it? I mean seriously, it's kind of perfect for everything, it's big and long so it kind of hugs you when you're wearing it (who needs a man when you've got a hugging suAcnket,)I'd wear it all day, every day, I'd eat with it, I'd ride my bike in it, I'd be happy when I'm wearing it (giggle-inducing you said?) maybe people would actually think I'm funny when I'm wearing it… SO many possibilities! High five!

    If this fashion specimen were mine, I think I would use it to repel my boyfriend (because I would rather be single and have ACNE). THEN to start my own motorcycle gang, The Purple ACNE. We would have to be pretty hardcore and obviously our mission would be to travel around and cause a ruckus. During our adventures, this jacket could also be used for (but is not limited to) the following activities:
    -mud fights
    -Repelling (male) mosquitos, bears and BROS.
    -An umbrella or parachute
    -A high speed chase (its so light, you can almost fly!)
    -blending into sand (for the more covert operations)

    If I were to receive said jacket prior to my departure for India this Saturday, I would tie it on as a suede turban, sure. (It's so effing perfect for my motorcycle trip through India I cannot even comprehend the insanity!!) Methinks I will not receive it in time, though. So, upon my return I shall don said suAcnket as a jacket to the office, as a hat to play outside on swingsets, as a skirt when eating ice cream, and again as a jacket to walk Cody the dog. Then, I will rejoice! Goodbye.

    I'd wear it all day, errday, errwhere, and all for me. Of course as the traditional jacket, most of the time, but also as a blanket to snuggle with my pet puppy — the only man who accepts me for my man repelling charms.

  • Camilla


    With this scrumptiously oversized jacket, I intend on building a boat and using the jacket as a sail to sail my ass all the way down to NYC to come and roam Madison avenue with you, with the jacket on, the lady boner up, and not a man in sight.
    Few things are more repelling than girls wearing matching jackets, but few things are more fun.
    Just went for a 20 minute run, doing lunches as I type, and heck I may just sign up for a pilates class while I'm on the laptop.

    Jacket love, to say the least.

    If I were to win the jacket, I would first freak out, jump around my room in circles, scream, shout, tell me mum, my dad, my brothers, my maid, my friends, my dog, everyone! i would wear it everywhere despite the terribly hot and humid singapore weather. I would wear it to school, to town, to work, to walk my dog and to sleep! I would wear it sleek for a presentation, rocker for a day out with my friends, colourful and fun when in school, chic when im in town and wear it with my jammies to sleep! i meant it!! :) thanks, i hope i can win it because it's so awesomely chic, like damn just look at the sophisticated nude on a biker jacket, it AWESOME!

    If the jacket were mine I would wear it as a cape to fly across the lovely shore of Lake Michigan in ChiTown! Once it is over-used as a cape, I will then use it as a magic carpet to do some epic sight seeing. AND FINALLY, once it is all worn out as a traveling device I will use it to complete my most spectacular MAN REPELLIN' outfit of alllll time!

    well jesus, i'm glad i already did the lunges. with that out of the way:

    likely, i'll wear the jacket in its usual jacket-fashion, probably by slipping the right sleeve onto my right arm, followed promptly by shoving my left arm into the left sleeve. there may or may not be some fluffing of the jacket, perhaps an upward turn of the collar, should the mood strike me.

    First of all, I would put the sleeves of the jacket through my arms, backwards and maybe inside out. Then I would style it in such way that I would never get a man in my entire life because they would think I am crazy, which I am of course. I'd imagine plaids with stripes and flower prints would be in order. Along with more jewelry so much that Mr. T would look like he was into minimalism. I also intend to use it as a blanket for when I'm old and lonely. And when it's finally worn out I'll make it into a volley ball and talk to it like Tom Hanks in Cast Away.

    and as for what I would do with this lovely jacket, because I am from Cairo, Egypt I feel a need to keep the stereotype going and so here goes..In the vast sandy Sahara desert I will use the jacket as a form of camouflage and protection; I will wrap it around my head and full fill every turban's dream of being at one with its surroundings, I will then proceed to use the jacket as my seat for when I hop onto my very own camel and then using the sleeve I will rub the lantern until a genie in the form of no one else but the very Leandra shall appear asking me for my three wishes. My first of course will be to have a thousand more wishes (come on, what else does any one want?) but then!! the AHA moment..I will ask for this Acne jacket to be mine forever, to comfort me in sickness and in health, till death do us part. The jacket will then come to life and turn into a magic carpet and carry me away into the sunset…happily ever after :)

    YES! Want want wannnnnnt

    If i win this jacket… Sure I'd wear it everywhere.. with everything i own (or things i plan on owning to go with this rad little jacket). But i would also love it, shower it with affection, use it as a pillow, a scarf, a DIY wrap skirt, an envy worthy table cloth (no worries – I dont cook), and oh so so much more (the possibilities are endless… )

    If I dont win it.. Well, I will prob pull my hair, stomp in place and have to use a feathered pillow instead like normal people.

    first things firt, I would commence lunging while wearing the coat. next, I will probably sleep in it so that I know upon waking that my winning was not a dream. I will also show it off to all of my friends exclaiming "look who's cooler now…yeah, I'm rockin' the Acne jacket all you bitches are lunging over." and then I will probably share it with my sister and bff.

So I will wear this as a jacket first, day after day, until it ha become soft enough to tie into some type of top or perhaps a sarong? Since I wont be able to afford clothes it may also have to do double duty as a tube dress. Finally, when it is disintegrating towards the end of my diploma it will be fashioned into a pair or loin cloth style underwear. I will wear it proudly!

    I decided to showcase what I would do with the jacket because words cannot describe all the man-repelling possibilities I envision for this wonderful item of clothing (or eatery, as you suggested). That link right up there will take you to my Polyvore creation which I will explain: first there's the gold sequins, because, if you ask me, anything looks better with sequins. Then there's the possibility of a good paint splattered Alexander Wang dress which I emphasized with some fantastic line suede platforms. Not done yet. This outfit was just screaming to be accessorized. I know what you're thinking, "outfits scream?" Yes, yes they do. I shut it up with Dannijo turquoise hoops and layers upon layers of bangles. I'm lookin for some bonus points for incorporating bracelets that looks like belts. Très chic! To illustrate the marvelous jacket's versatility, I made up a more casual outfit as well. It began with some slouchy denim Acne shorts because I just love me some denim. I virtually paired them with a Stella McCartney floral top because I secretly love it when my top half resembles a garden. Add a bow – every outfit needs at least one bow, this one in the form of a belt. If I was feeling extra repelling, I could wear said bow on my head. Since you informed us that the jacket is lightweight and perfect for summer layering, I took the liberty of adding sunglasses. But not just any sunglasses – these sunglasses have tassels. Gold ones to match the gold sequins that are not officially part of either outfit but make for one heck of a background. I don't need shoes with this outfit because I plan on sitting inside and taking some time to contemplate this jacket's pure awesomeness before I share it with the world. On it's own, I accessorized the jacket with some blue-green jewels. My favorite is the full peacock necklace because plain feathers are for amateurs. Other possibilities include a skinny tie playing the role of necklace, a silk cocktail dress and cutout booties, or a super colorful tribal print skirt because that look is sohotrightnow. Alright, enough said. I just love this jacket.

    Hi! So if I owned this jacket I would ball it up and snuggle with it every night, in lieu of a man, of course (not like I have a choice). Jackets (all clothing, really) do not talk back. They do not say things like, "Why don't you brush your hair ever?" or "Why are you wearing eyeglasses? You can see just fine." or even, "Why are you wearing so many layers? It's warm outside." Nope, they do not. And while jackets may not snuggle back, their level of love and acceptance for the ways of a man repeller makes up for that tenfold.

    When your mom called your blazer your "Wang."

    Acne and I, for years, have been snug
    I now wear their high-waisted pants
    but at each junior high dance
    I wore Acne on my uneasy mug.

    Snakeskin skeins, leopard spots, vests of feathers
    Clothes questionable in extreme weathers
    This guide makes it clear
    To never once fear
    To layer leather with leather with leathers.

    So first of all, if I won the jacket, it would completely and utterly de-bone my poor boyfriend who's boner has already been multiply de-boned by my Acne wedges and orange puffball skirts, oversized bags and jackets and leopard printed scarves. Most of what tickles my lady boner's fancy, certainly does NOT tickle his. Either way, I would wear it in such a lady-bonerriffic manner that all members of the weaker sex within a one-mile radius would feel their boners whimper in despair. Preferably, anyway. Heck, I'd probably even sleep in it at night, paired up with massive chunky wedge platforms, a few weapons pretending to be jewelry and a few extra layers of animal print, just to ensure the ultimate efficacy of my preferred method of birth control – serious sartorial gluttony.

    And lunges are bad – bad I say! For lunges will make your butt all cute and tight and perky, and does that repell a man? It most certainly does not!

    Annie, I would use it to create a boat that could handle the Atlantic ocean waves to get to Sweden (seems realisitic…right??) and thank the people of Acne for creating such beauty in fabric form. And then wear it to show them Swedes how Americans rock their shiz. While doing lunges, of course.

  • mia_pancake

    ok ok , so we in aus are entering winter and therefore i am in much greater need of a jacket than say, you. Especially such a SEXY one!!

    my twitter name is MiaPancakeface (because what can be better than a pancake in the face?!?) name Mia and email, or [dot] com if your trying to be cool.

    I prefer the squats so I did a few of those, I tend to overbalance with lunges?? Tell me thats normal.

    SO I NEED that jacket because it will keep me warmer than any man will, and a man is something I do not have (nor look like getting any time soon) due to my repellant nature. I would like to say that I will treasure it and sleep with it and make it a little bed out of turkish fairy floss, but it's more likely that I'll just spill sauce on it. Keeping it real, etc etc. Doesn't diminish the love though. SO PLEASE GIVE IT TO ME!

    Lots of love (for you and said jacket),

    Have you ever been to the deep south? I'm talking DEEP, Georgia and Mississippi style. Well down here, it gets HOT. And as soon as you walk indoors a blast of icy AC instantly freezes you (if you're 5'2 with a significantly low amount of body fat, like myself), so I'm forced to carry around a bulky jacket everywhere I go. More important than the sweat-inducing temperatures, man-repelling is a special art practiced by few below the mason-dixon line. In fact, my gay best friend and I are the only ones who appreciate it for what it is around here. If I were to win this jacket, I would frolic around my hometown, a 'Main Street of America' setting, wearing it to every function. I.E. to bad mexican restaurants, the local theater, and the only local coffee shop that isn't a Starbucks. Because, like, we get coffee and and support the local economy. I could throw it over dresses, it would match perfectly with my new glitter oxfords, and it's roomy enough to tie around my waist all 90s style when I'm outside. And I could feel like a camel, obviously all pros to that. All while introduced so many unfortunate souls to man repelling! (This is only for the summer, the amount of man repelling possibilities while I'm at school are positively endless! The fratdaddies would cower in horror as I step into the bars!)

    If I won this jacket, I would first of all not be freezing my ASS off here in Denmark (did someone say summer? What is that?) but I would also snuggle up to, in front of a fire. An open fire. On a polarbear rug (not real, of course!). With candlelight and rose petals scattered all over, whilst soft 80's porn music plays in the background. Or Marvin Gaye – same thing, really.
    Of course this is all the action I'll be getting with a manrepellant as such, but who cares! I might even take the jacket out to dance, have a night on the town! Show it a good time. But most of all, I will love it 'till the end of my days! Forever cherish it and whisper softly into its' suede-ness (?). Please oh please, make this love come true!

    - a top of a super flowy-abundance of material- black maxi style tank dress. I'm thinking one of the pieces from either Donna Karen Spring RTW 2011 if i chose to be all neutral, or Michael Kors Spring RTW 2011 if I'm in a colorful mood on said day.
    - Shoes. No question that I will pair them with the Spring 2011 Balenciaga cutout boots. Those babies will be mine, as will the jacket, and then a love affair will occur.

    If I got this jacket into my own hands, I'd start using it as a beach towel. I mean, I live in Miami, Florida and it's mid summer right now. I can't be wearing a jacket unless I was aimin' to for some gnarly pit stains at the clubs….But i could always use a new beach towel…People use the Louis Vuitton towels here. I'll use a damn Acne jacket. Gotta go to the beach in style at least, right?!

    My name is Steph! And if I were to become the loving owner of this jacket, I would do what all loving owners of things do: I would take it for walks and rub its belly. And by that I mean 'wear the ever-lovin crap out of it', in a loving and gentle way. I'm going on my first vacation as a legal adult before Uni this July and what better way is there to do that than in groovy new clothes? There is no better way. None. Yum!

  • Crissy

    oh me oh my! I think I would wear that over a very cute little F21 star-bespeckled dress that I have with my favorite navy oxfords and a smile! Not over the top man repeller, but very geek chic when you throw in my favorite Warby Parkers.

    Were luck to befall me (as is seldom the case), and I were the winner of this jacket, the first thing I would do would be to promptly faint. Once smelling salts had been wafted under my nose, and I had been brought a glass of brandy, and all the other things that women in F. Scott Fitzgerald novels need after a spell, I would wear it with everything. I would wear this sucker to bed. I would wear it at my own wedding. I would asked to be buried in it.
    I guess my point is that I really love this jacket.

    Acne suede, camel supreme
    You are a jacket of my dreams.
    Forget Hermes, Chanel, or Prada
    I don't even want a Balenciaga.
    There's something about that Swedish label
    That makes repelling fully enabled.
    I'll pair it with the Admire wedge
    Because alien-like attire is what I pledge.
    Any occasion and every possible day
    Suede Acne will be my wardrobe replay.
    My grandma would smile and proudly exclaim
    "Girl, with that coat, you've got some bad game!"

    A woman in leopard print is wisdom imbued.

    I would stride of pride through Philly wearing it inside out, and sometimes inside in or outside out, and occasionally upside-down or tied about the waist, to teach your gospel to the uninformed masses.

    My awesome Acne jacket would travel across the country with me this summer. It would be hanging out sippin sweet tea down south, riding through mountains in Oregon, and probably up all night partying and keeping me toasty during some music festivals. It would be danced in, hugged in, screamed in, slept in, worked in, and man-repelled in. If I needed a turban, it would be called upon to be one. If I needed a blanket while watching some outdoor event this summer, it would perform as a chic substitute. It would eventually just end up looking effortlessly chic walking around Williamsburg, but man it would be LOVED.

    If I won I would wear it on my birthday, which is coming up soon. The plan is to see the Savage Beauty exhibit, wander around, and enjoy a day full of great food and desserts. The only thing that could make the day even more special? Winning this sweet suede Acne jacket. I've entered many a contest, never to win. Acne to match my acne, which I get due to the stress of never winning anything. Just kidding, I have wonderful skin. Just kidding, I really do have acne. Just kidding, just kidding… No really, I have never won a contest :(

    As for specific ways I'd wear the jacket, I pick my outfits out like 5mins before I leave my apartment…which means I'd need it in my posession to figure out what to do with it. *Nudge nudge, wink wink.*

    I "liked" MyTheresa on FB. The thing is I don't have a twitter account, because nobody I know uses it. But I follow you on Facebook and Blogger, and can still check your Twitter page even though I don't have an account. Will you still accept my entry? Pretty please???

    California weather isn't exactly conducive to suede jackets, so I'd carry the jacket around with me everywhere I went, but never wear it, except when I'm in colder climes. No matter what though, me and said jacket would be attached at the ZIP (get it, get it!?)

    What a beautiful jacket! I would wear it over a sweater, over another sweater, over a dress. Actually I would probably wear it with everything I own, you can't really go wrong with a neutral suede coat. Oh Acne, how I love thee.

    I'd obviously build a shrine to it in the spare bedroom of my apartment, and hang it up there whenever it's not swathed across my body in every beautiful and awkward way you can imagine. When you've got Acne on your hands, you better treat it right. Like singing Swedish lullabies to it while it's hanging on its shrine.

    GingerCookie91, Leslie Olson,

    1. Since this jacket is the most beautiful article of outer ware I've ever laid eyes on, I would wear it all summer, regardless of the heat–this would cause profuse sweating and flushed cheeks. I think the dewy, blushing thing is pretty sexy, but to most people [men], I'll look like I just got back from the gym and tried to dress myself in a rush and am trying to pretend I wasn't just at the gym. JUST KIDDING JUST KIDDING maybe

    2. Otherwise, once I've worn the crap out of this Acne jacket, I will send it to my Norwegian ex-roommate, who is the coolest girl EVER, and like all Norwegians, LOVES Acne.

    3. Actually, it'd be fun to wear the jacket to a party, looking all refined and attractive, to garner the attention of a man… he may ask what kind of jacket it is, I would say "Acne" and he would make some comment about an adolescent skin condition, and I'd kick his ass.

    Well hello, you see if I won that jacket, I'd first use it as a superman cape while a run around town screaming about how much I love my new jacket, and then for the other days I'd wear it as a jacket and as a skirt and as a turban and as pants even (wait, that might be revealing…), i guess what I'm saying is, I'd figure out as many ways as possible of wearing it so that I could wear it everyday for the rest of my life.

    oh the ways I would wear it! For one, I live in Canada and bitch gets cold around here, but not always cold enought that I need full sleeves. Of course I'd throw on some leopard print under in an obnoxious shade of pink to ensure that my repelling skills are out there. Then I think red pants are in order, to balance the canvasy color of the jacket. I'd finish off with my leopard print booties, because a girl can never have too much leopard print!
    And when it's not actually on my body it would likely be in a showcase near by bookshelf full of shoes.
    5. you know… lunges are under-appreciated, they make your ass look FINE! I'll do 'em all day long bby.

    If this beautiful jacket was bestowed upon this here self I would parade around probably just in the jacket with nothing else on but a tea cosy on my head and tea towel round my bits, just coz I fear the sexiness of the jacket might overpower any chances I have of man repelling, so I will wear whilst simultaneously and adamently making it clear that my humps and such are tea related and actually smell/taste/look like tea, not lovely herbal tea but tea made from cardboard shavings from a cardboard factory that also was a sterilisation unit for cows. That kind of tea.

    This jacket would be perfect for this monochromatic kick I've been on lately, all beige everything. Which is also kind of creepy because all my clothes just blend into my skin which helps me become invisible (obviously) and also scare the shit out of people when I pop out of bushes, etc. And it's thin enough to layer over and under more beige shit! I'm all about layering. Also I've been known to be very caring with my jackets, I even tuck them into bed at night… So fret not! It would be in a very loving home. (I kind of wish I was kidding, but I'm not.) Okay I have to go do lunges now.

    well see the obvious answer is, yes, i would wear it. but let's just continue that little promise… i would wear it until it was no longer a jacket but just a bunch of loved threads draped over my body, maybe a bit of spider web weaved through it, a bit too worn out after years of wearing it but you know i'd still love it just as much as the day it came because its TIMELESS.

    or, hey, i could always use it as an in to the hell's angels too. it has that bad-ass look to it/i dont care i just threw this beautiful jacket on without thinking about it.

    If I got hold of that Acne jacket, I would stare at it for hours not believing I'm holding it and that its owner is me, and then do some crazy dance, go into the streets and scream and rub it on people's faces…okay, maybe not, because I don't want other people's germs on my new treasure. I'll just sit in my little corner and pat it like a nice little dog.

    Dear fairest Man Repeller,
    I saw my ex-boyfriend the other day and I was wearing a long skirt and chunky, oversized sweater. Up until then he had been texting me, but since seeing him I have not received any in a week. #win. I would wear this jacket and man-repel the shit out of him next time I see him. To be honest though, I would probably wear this jacket as a pair of harem pants and put my legs into the sleeves.
    Other ways that I would wear said jacket:
    Mou mou
    Eggplant (I couldn't think of anything else that started with an "E")
    Pants (Harem)
    Lady bits (a way to cover them)
    Evening gown (over one)

    Jackets are not for wearing, they are for using. So I would use it as: a jacket for everyday forever and ever, a blanket, a tablecloth, a strangulation device, a turBAND, a scarf, a way to make myself look like a tool by tying it around my shoulders country-club-prepster-style, a pillow, a way to get around my apartment by placing it under my feet and sliding around on it, a curtain, a head covering, a canopy, a cape, a skirt……..
    Jackets are the most useful things ever known to man. As a seasoned man repeller, you must already know the many man repelling usages.

    Dear Jacket,
    I think your really attractive. There, I said it, now its out there, in the ether. But you're more then just 'attractive,' you're a beautiful miracle, like when it's sunset and a beautiful gazelle stops right in front of your path to smell a beautiful wild rose, also, someone left a beautiful sculpture on that path, right next to it also I'm on mushrooms. When I found out you were on the market, it changed me. I've been eating right, the other day I was at the fountain in the mall and I put coins IN it, my god I feel younger, and thinner? does that make sense? I started painting again! I know you never been worn before, and thats okay with me, we'll take it slow, I have sweaters if we need them. Or I'm perfectly fine just snuggling on the couch. I know I sound crazy, I know you could have anyone, and I know you may not trust me, may have seen me outside the liquor store popping some other collar, but baby I only need one jacket, and you go with everything.
    Love, One Cold Broad. @ohmoira

It's going to be frigid up there, despite the earth telling it to be "summer". I will wear the jacket for what the jacket is composed for, warmth, and then at night I will be crafting it into a makeshift tent for me to shelter me from the elements, bears and other Maine creatures. Wish me luck.

I would shop with the jacket, spoiling it with lovely outfits that ONLY compliment it (a nice mint green would go splendid, my mind is already reeling with possible ensembles). We would have the greatest wild nights. Go out for swanky( a jacket that nice needs to be shown off in proper places) dinners around town. My friends would start to envy the jacket, but I wouldn’t mind, jealousy is expected when I get to spend everyday with the most splendiferous jacket in the world.

    Arghhh LOVE the jacket!

    If I won, I would wear the jacket tied around my neck as a cape and take to the streets yelling 'come see me in my amazing acne jacket!!' then maybe get arrested for disturbing the peace, then probably wear it with an orange jumpsuit-prison style for a little while, until released.

    Then chill out a little and wear it with some skinny jeans and killer heels.

    As my hometown of Sydney moves into cooler weather, my status as man repeller is coming under threat by those known as 'man getters'. In these cooler and windier times, even the most illustrious of 'man getters' are getting up in my grill with their own man repelling garments (lint covered tights with visible vaj!). How am I supposed to compete?! Will I, by law of default, become a 'man getter'?! (lulz at/perish the thought! she exclaimed.)

    With this jacket, I will be able to continue to disgust the male species far into the winter months. I may continue to smugly smile and walk on in the face of, well, digusted male faces. I could pair the jacket with a men's hoodie underneath and high waisted peg leg trousers and bask in the horror of the male species, make them dumbfounded, wonder 'what is that agendered, sporty, biker hairball visitting from the 40s doing??' (I have a lot of hair… not just on my head… but I have a lot there too). Or I could just wear nothing else at all and horrify with my own repellent form melding the the repelling nature of this jacket. Either/or, with this jacket my man repelling status will live on to fight another day, and a few more after that.

    Because really, why would you want men when you can have acne?*

    *lowercase a equals both the brand and the skin condition, though the former is slightly more desirable

    Oh gosh, that is an adorable bit of people wrapper, if you ask me! I am simply spoilt for choice for wearing it- it's coming into winter here in Aus, so I can say it would mainly be worn as a motivator to leave the house + brave the weather for vital coffee doses.

    I can also see this being worn with a slip underneath (so as to prevent a Britney, of course!), being cinched in with a nice belt, obnoxious tights + a turban for a jacketdress, or a sure fire way to make sure you're the only biddy in the building with that outfit! :D

    Keen to see what who wins this does with it- I have so many ideas, but I suppose I can be okay with living vicariously through other style fiends + the way they have with that glorious coat!

    P.P.S, before I shaved my head into a Tank Girl haircut, I had a huuge fluffy deathhawk, and I am proud to say I have sported a similar hairstyle for days on end- including on the flight home from a photoshoot! Teehee! ♥

    So um, this jacket, right. What can I say. I would prolly wear it like, all the time. Even in summer. Even in August in NYC when it's so hot that you walk a block and you half to take a shower. Well I would bike with it. And then the pit stains would get so intense that the man repelling ability i was born with would become so turbo I would probably repel all men into extinction. So maybe you shouldn't give it to me, cause then there would be no men to repel, and what's the fun in that? But I would wear it with a purty cute fluffy skirt wedge combo. your choice.

    Seeing as I'm on exams at present, this jacket is perfectly suited to be used during my visual arts exam. I'll wear it in, masqueraded underneath my man-repelling uniform. Then, when confronted with a baffling essay question on the conceptual practice of modernism (with reference to Malevich/Mondrian) I'll whip it out, staple it to the exam paper and ta-da! My art teacher will be so overcome with the minimalism, balance and refinement that I'll be guaranteed full marks (and perhaps the #1 rank).

    Upon ownership of this glorious jacket I would probably stroke its spine for a number of hours, daydreaming of all the fun we'll have together, and all of the mischeif we may get into. I would then wear it in more ways than one, regularly, as a cape, tied at the waist, swung over my shoulder like Sinatra, zipped and buttoned and tied into a skirt, and really anything else I could possibly think of. I would hang it on the back of my chair at a restaurant, use it so beautiful laides wouldn't ruin thier shoes in rain puddles ( I am a chivalrous woman, as well as a lady who can appriciate a diva who loves her pumps) and possibly sleep next to it. Not only would I do all of these things (and more!) for this sweet and loving jacket, but it would do something nice and lovely for me! It would keep me warm, which is mostly what clothes are supposed to do , but it would also make me look and feel quite stylish at the same time! I lahhvvee tis jacket!!

    Well, I promised a pal I'd go camping next week & I have yet to buy a tent. I don't even know where to buy tents. Or how to assemble one for that matter. Forget about the rest of the camping gear. So, this little Acne mammajamma is gonna help me out. I'm sure this jacket has magical powers. It's gonna make me a campfire. It's gonna repel mosquitos (and dudes, of course). And, most importantly, it's gonna bust a flex into a tent & shelter me from the wilderness. Really, it's essential camping gear & I know you don't want me to freeze/starve/die camping.

    Reasons I should own this jacket:
    The main reason it was created extends far beyong that of an average "jacket". In my opinion it serves as a daily reminder of why the male sex should not own such a thing.

    - it does a lovely job of covering up some namely "lady parts" (just in case my dress,graphic t-shirt, vest, and cardigan do a poort job of that
    -in the event that I may get mugged by a thug, it should prove itself to be a nice strangulation or whipping device
    -local bikers will practically invite me into their cults
    -UV rays stand no chance of burning my delicate face skin when ACNE is covering it!
    Goodbye sunglasses and oversized hats, hello head and face wrap
    -when doing walking lunges through large crowds, this jacket would be my scapegoat. I already hear MALE comments, "Why the hell is this chich lunging down 4th Street? Wait. Hold on. What is she swinging above her head like helecopter? She must be reaching 750 RPM! OMFG that so cool!Bug and man repeller! I would never sleep with that chick." (This is when I snort, giggle, and hit a full on sprint towards the nearest FRO-YO shop.
    This jacket is the key to my success. Without this ACNE jacket in my wardrobe men will practically be flinging themselves at my bare arms. This jacket is a means of life.

    Ho-my. I feel may sound a bit cocky in saying so, but what the hellz: this contest was made for me.

    It just so happens I'm living in Madrid pulling the part-time grad student, part-time English teacher for little Spanish chillins gig. And what does one American in a foreign land do, besides endlessly search for peanut butter?! I kid, I kid. But not really. They aren't down with the nut butter. But that's neither here nor there. A girl from the lands of red, white and blue crafts up with ways to make herself look even MORE American! (Assimilation was never an option, I have freckles).

    You see, in order to make the cultural divide more awkward, I've decided to make a dancy video. Yes, I said dancy and no I'm not 5 years old. To clarify, dancy moves are some of the most unattractive (read: AMAAAZING) ways one can move their body- sheer man repeller gold, if you will. So I will be doing dancy moves, alone, or with whatever strangers I can coral, in front of various monuments, personas (I swear I'm bilingual) and situations that I come across. All, to the tune of Emiliana Torrini – Jungle Drum. Why, you may ask?

    Why. Not.

    This is where the Man Repeller and mytheresa come in. The ensemble I'll be wearing while doing these dancy moves will be boasting one of my favorite things. Hint: it begins with the letter "L". No, sadly it's not additional labia lips. Layers!! Lots o layers. I know you can get behind that. Scalloped lace layers, sheer fabric layers, multiple sock layers…a man repeller's dream. However, I am missing the final touch. A suede, tan jacket, to be exact. What luck! Not only can you help bring this dancy dream video to life, you will be aiding in creating the ultimate outfit to ward off unseemly XY chromosomes that may be lurking around the next corner. Should there be any additional convincing needed, let's just take a look at the international publicity all players involved will be getting. I mean really, this is a clear win for everyone.

    Intrigued? Interested? Up to get down? I sure hope so. I've got my dancy pants on.

This way, I would look like a giant sandman and blend in with the yellow garage door, i mean blue, just kidding, i would still blend in because no one would want to acknowledge such a nude/vitamin D deficient/pale/sandy outfit. The jacket would also convert into a tote if tied correctly for carrying a small puppy/infant/brother that is also khaki colored.

    This jacket will work on men like Shark Repellant Bat-Spray works on sharks! That’s right I just used a 1960s batmen reference!

    I would wrap myself in this jacket and let the man-repellent smell of three-quearter-length-sleeved, tan suede waft through the air around me, causing men to stagger back in shock and confusion, as if they’d just been “ZOP”ed and “POW”ed by the caped crusader himself!

    To be worn with floral dresses, clogs, scarves, giant belts, and perhaps a Man Repeller-Utility-Fanny-Pack! Perfect for carrying all of my man repelling tools: brightly coloured nailed nail polish, orange lipstick and a giant pair of bug-eyed sunglasses. This jacket will make me a superhero among women and strike limp dicks into the pants of men!

    If you haven't watched old 1960s batman movies I suggest you start when you get home from your trip! Here’s the shark scene to get you started:

    I'd probably wear it as a scarf. Because I do that with things that aren't scarves.

    But after about a year of wearing it everywhere, as a scarf/diaper/turban/necklace/jacket(because that's its /original/ function) I would probably make it into a canvas for an art project and write something like "No Hard Feelings, Acne" in big black, sopping ink on the back. Because that's what we people at art school like to call "performance art".

    PS. I like doing cartwheels in the rain, long walks on the beach, and riding my bike with no hands. Because I'm cool /man/. But seriously, my hands are always cold, wtfx?! Maybe I'll wear the jacket as mittens too.

  • Yevgeniya Yelkina

    If i won this piece, the question of how I would wear it today is rather boring, for pairing it with anything in my closet today would look incredible because this jacket is.. well.. a beautiful neutral, statement, staple. I am think more for the future, as in when I am 65 and still rocking Acne because it will be with me forever, I will be the chicest old lady, rocking it with god know what will be in style in 2045? Perhaps plastic potato sacks with leather trim? And I will tell my fashionable grandchild who will try to steal it, to whom I will politely say "you can have it when I'm rotting in my grave" how i won the lovely thing. When the age of blogging allowed for such decadent luxuries. and so in advance i thank you, if I were to win, for allowing me to have a piece that will last a lifetime, leaving behind its legacy, looking classically chic even when we travel to the world of Avatars, and tweens are having sex at the age of 9. (if we make it past 2012 that is, in that case i will stash it in an underground bunker for the aliens to find in 2,000 years after the world rejuvenates itself)

    but i would also use it more appropriately, & by that i mean to cover up my razor sharp nips when its cold out.

    "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it"
    -William Arthur Ward

    Where "it" = ACNE Jacket. Although becoming a jacket that looks THAT good would be pretty sweet, I'd rather achieve it so I can still be my happy self and look amazing with it on me :)

    The ACNE jacket will become "THE" staple that brings & holds together all that is my man repellant wardrobe.

    1st Outfit that comes to mind would be to layer it over my bright, flowy, scoop necked, knee length, F21 multi-colour dress with brilliant blotches of blue, yellow & pink. Paired with equally vibrant & intricate yellow dangling earrings & light grey kitten heel booties that cost less than a pack of chips ta'boot!

    I would then prop my lil self on my balcony w/my fancy schmancy royal albert tea cup (w/tea in it of course, jasmine tea to be precise) & mini biscuits for a job well done.

    This would be followed by a gleeful, hippity, bippity, hop on over to a "hip" montreal club to break out dance moves Liz Lemon style to celebrate the awesomeness that is the ACNE jacket & b/c I always have a good time dancing the night away w/drunken friends all the while being sober :)

    Thus, concluding only day 1 of my Ultimate Man Repellent ACNE Jacket Win Experience, which is now only imaginary but you have the power to make a reality.

    So work that magic for me will ya?

    Okay, so after reading all the creative responses and not being able to get past two lunges, I decided the only way I could get a chance to win the lovely jacket was by the not so nice shortcut of getting my hair gelled. So I did so. Just kidding. No, not kidding. Well…yeah, I’m just kidding but I tried though. If only gravity hadn’t been so stubborn, I would have done it.
    Anyway, if I won this jacket I would first have a heart attack and then basically wear the shit out of it until its repelling powers wore out (which I highly doubt could ever happen).

    Now.. I just joined Twitter, ONLY to follow you, so that I might have a chance to win that Acne jacket.

    Look, Man Repeller I have to be honest with you. I can't stand suede and I hate beige – Beige is pointless and suede is just evil. However, I can't resist a challenge. So please feel free to give the jacket to someone who would just as soon sleep with Colonel Gaddaffi for a Swatch Watch if it had a picture of Lady Gaga on it as follow this theresa chick on Twitter. Or you could give it to me and dare me to wear it more than once before putting it in a plastic bag and donating it to Oxfam.

I would also use it as a blueprint so I could make a mini-version for my adorable pitbull, Flapjack. Yes, i named him after pancakes. He's an american badass and can appreciate a good motorcycle jacket. Dude knows his shit. So, you see, if I were to win this jacket not only would you be fulfilling a dream of mine but also that of my pitty Flapjack. We would be forever grateful.

    Plus. I could never afford this jacket. Unless of course, I sold my body….or my dog. Do you really want that hanging over your head? Poor little Flapjack workin the streets all for a sweet ass suede motorcycle jacket…..actually…hmm…ooooooo Flapjack!!

    In closing, if I do not win this jacket by acne, fret not, I will stay a loyal reader..just with a chip on my shoulder…just kidding just I won't just kidding yes I will just kidding just kidding…. Well I'm off, God speed and steadfast fellow man repellers.

    I want this jacket for the following reasons:

    1: To repel man-eating mosquitos and dive-bombing cicadas.
    2: To cheer up my depressed wardrobe, because meds aren't working.
    3: To bring a little NY class and label love to the South.
    4: To give me another reason to talk about YOU and Man Repeller.

    You can find me on the T: @livethefinelife

If i don't get the jacket,that would make me sad and fighting villains just won't be the same anymore.Well I think my loyal army of trained pigeons would be depressed also. See, I promised them they'll get a mini acne jacket as well. They were very excited because acne jacket goes well with their monocles. Now you try telling pissed off pigeons that they won't get their jackets. You know what would happen? Poop.Just poop all over me. Now excuse me, I gotta go and fight some dragons (oh yeah they are real) and solve the secret of the old clock.

    I am IN DESPERATE need of a roomy cover up for my grandma sexiness whilst fulfilling my daughterly watering duty that will also double as repellant contra the worker ants in the office building vis-à-vis. This piece of butter would certainly do the trick.

    so i try super hard to be man-repelling chic, including designing a man repeller line, and my boyfriend seems to adore my outfits anyway. odd. this jacket would just add to my man repelling style. paired with a wife beater, brick red drop crotch pants and suspenders. OR a long sleeved shirt, suuuuper short COOGI shorts (ooh girl, ghetto girl shorts are my shiz) and vans. add in my robot clock necklace to BOTH outfits, other men will be repelled.
    much love.

    …I would wear it with anything and everything, and enjoy the heck out of it. Plus, I would make an extra special effort to keep it free and clear of any and all spit up, or spit-up type fluid, but the light color might be baby camo. It can go over all of my uber-fashionable Basel Ghetto post-preg baby momma clothing, and I can feel somewhat stylish when the Art comes around. In other words, I really want that jacket, and not just because it looks like it will fit over my newly minted F cups.

    Since I live in Fargo, ND (a hella fashionable place), the jacket would also enable me to continue to repel all members of my community, and it's hippie chic-ness might even allow me to up my repelling and (dare I say) be mistaken for a homeless person!

    Not gonna lie: I was seriously considering trying to gel my hair like that, or at least have a small part of my hair gelled up, like Cameron Diaz in "There's Something About Mary." But my hair is way too long and heavy for that. And Cameron Diaz only had her hair like that because of Ben Stiller's semen–and let's face it. I follow Man Repeller (obviously). Need a man to get that "gel."

    Anyway, I'd probably wear this with my high-waisted, shiny harem pants to go dancing with my friends. The second a creeper comes near, I would deflect and put my jacket on. If the high-waisted, shiny harem pants weren't enough, covering every visible part of my body with a thick, leather jacket that would make me sweat, to the point my makeup melts off my face, will do the trick.

    Seriously, my mind is quite blank right now because those photos were stunning and that JACKET is stunning.

    But I would first protect it with some suede protection spray, because once you get your hands on something precious, you should take good care of it.

    After that I would go out for a beer to celebrate my victory, beer because red wine is not an option if you're wearing an expensive suede jacket.. it really isn't, although that would be slightly fancier. What can you do, did anyone have some better ideas than a party dedicated to a suede jacket? Makes me happy just to look at it in photos, so imagine the look on my face wearing it.

    If I won this unbecoming named brand of a jacket it I would pair it with an ill-matched yellow-striped croptop that has been referred to as a vomit garment because of its neon shading. Then with my pirate shorts (the correct term is "scalloped" but I have been asked several times where my eye patch is when sporting them) and I would race downtown on my scooter to the bars as soon as finals commence to relieve pent up stress! The Acne brand jacket would also compliment the geometric shaped pimples popping up on my pale face. Sigh, no gents for me… PSYCH! I luhhh my clothes too much. Tootles, you only live once!
