The Aki Goto Paper Bag Jacket takes the environmentally conscious idea of recycling to another level. This blazer is made up of a collection of brown paper bags, varnish and glue. The result is a vintage mass of crumpled paper unlike anything that may be lingering on the hangers in your wardrobe.

The rips and tears on the sleeves and bottom hem give it the appearance of being trampled during a busy turnover in a downtown subway. The crinkled lapel looks like it's seen better days, but still holds the identifiable crease. Its worn, ragged, and glowing sheen give the Aki Goto Paper Bag Jacket an unattainable attitude. No doubt, the owner of this exclusive unisex jacket would be a proud environmentalist who knows how to dress to impress.

A bit on the hobo-chic side, this paper bag number is nowhere close to cheap. If you want to get your hands on this overcoat, expect to pay $480.
