Killing me would be merciful. She'd relentlessly taunt and torture me. I'd taunt and torture myself - eeee gads that's ugly. I've also bought actual De Rosas for less!

Maybe one color of wool, contrasting cuffs, a couple of embroidered patches/logos ...now that might be handsome. They sure over-did this one.

The record business used to be famous for this folly.

When I got out I had a huge sale with hundreds of bad shirts, jackets, and windbreakers included.

I would of made a billion on ebay if my timing was a tad better.

My wife still wears an "Oasis" baseball jacket when she's cold at soccer games.......

Thank goodness there were only five of that De Rosa jacket made.

Yup it might have worked back in the late 80's/early 90's...but dang, that style went out with pajama pants, ladies big shoulder pads and pastel colored sport jackets.......
Somebody please buy all those jackets and burn them........and remember to use a whole bunch of splash bar tape as kindling too!!
