I made the same face as my kid in my icon when I saw this

80s, I am disappoint
His "stubble" looks like the stubble they painted on some Ken dolls to make them look badass or something.
well if it's designed for the "rock & roll" crowd, I'm there peach fuzz and all!

No, wait... eww, no. No. This jacket is more disgusting than Meg Ryans' lips. Was this a rejected Ken Doll design? Yuck.
Because there's nothing more a teenager wants than a jacket decorated in Tulip paints.
Have you all missed the artistry in creating this?

"Designer Metallic paint used in specific areas looks almost like leather. Small pieces of ordinary craft chain are stitched on the yoke, pocket flaps and jacket back. A variety of nailheads add interest and some freehand lettering on the jacket bottom completes the youthful design of this jacket."

I wondered if this guy still had this jacket intact when he got to the end of the hall at school! I can see those chains getting hooked or popped real quick! LOL!
That poor kid would have the snot kicked out of him if he showed up at school wearing that thing. And the fact that he looks like George Michael's younger brother wouldn't help him.
i don't know the parenthood between george michael and the followills of kings of leon, but i'm sure this guy is the singer, caleb.
I'm sorry, but the metallic paint doesn't look at all like leather to me. The jacket looks OK for a girl, but definitely not a guy!
"Just perfect for a teenage boy."

A teenage boy who likes getting the crap kicked out of him on a daily basis.
You know someone's grandmother saw this is Parade Magazine and thought it would be a great gift.

This kid got picked up at a bus station by a pornographer the SECOND he arrived in LA. And then I saw him in this gay porn where he was playing a kid getting picked up at a bus station.
Seeing a twelve-year old kid with what looks like a three-day beard is rather disturbing. Even more so in combination with the jacket.
And at around this time (early early 1990's) This was also cool, Ear ring magic Ken! ;)

Ear ring, purple leather jacket, fishnet purple shirt. Not gay at all! I wonder how Barbie didn't notice :P
I think I vaguely remember this doll - sooo cool at the time! :D

I swear I've seen guys like this in Vancouver, scary enough.
Oh! I stole that doll from my sister when i was a kid!
That and "Totally hair" Ken doll. He was so Rad!
I'm pretty sure they drew that stubble on. Perhaps he's going for the George Michaels look?
I'd like to point out that he's also wearing two belts at the same time.
"Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl."
This is the most amazing gay thing I've ever seen ... and I'm gay. I wouldn't wear this jacket if it had a stenciled Harley logo on the back in black & gold glitter.

Ok, maybe then I would.
it pains me slightly to admit this in a public forum... but i would actually wear that jacket. i think it's beautifully hideous.
Josh is that you?
This kid's fake stubble looks as terrible as Sabrina the Teenage Witch's boyfriend Josh's painted on facial hair. It was a sad attempt to try and make him (Josh) look like a "bad boy." It only made me laugh.
