Cool Hand Luke

I've waxed obsessive about Mike & Chris before (um, yesterday), but how can I stop when they keep churning out one hit after another? Their look is definitely cool-kid-on-the-block, but without trying too hard. The girls' line seems to channel an androgynous Françoise Hardy vibe (love the slim fitting leather hoodies with a lived-in look), while the guys' gear is fit for a modern day Dylan McKay. Luke Perry may have played a rebel without a cause, but he definitely had a clue when it came to mastering the too-cool-for-school vibe. If I were a boy, I think I'd buy the entire men's line, and then cut class to go chain-smoke behind the gym, cocking an eyebrow when the principal walks by without questioning me. Because I'm that cool, apparemment.

Since I'm not that boy, I think I'd want to be this girl. Jasper distressed lambskin hoodie. At $930, you'll need Dylan McKay's inheritance. Available @ Iris Singer. Please ignore the fact that Ashlee Simpson is wearing it.

Rampart distressed hoodie in fatigue. Alas, I could only find it on eBay, with a starting bid of $650. I'll keep you posted if I find it anywhere else. Check their website for a list of stores near you.

Mercer hoodie in Travertime, $215 @ Revolve.

Echo Park canvas hoodie, on sale @ Tobi, $143.

The Bond hoodie, on sale @ Tobi for $176.

For all you Dylan McKay fans, here's a YouTube video you'll appreciate. I think I prefer the Brenda and Dylan video with "Hungry Eyes" as soundtrack and Swedish (?) subtitles.
