Ransom Hooded Twill Blazer by Volcom

by Andy on November 27, 2007


I really can’t decide what I think of this, although I’m erring more towards the ‘hate it’ than ‘love it’ side of things. I didn’t realise that wearing a hoodie and a blazer at the same time was considered a ‘look’, and combining the two to make a Franken-blazer justs seems kinda wrong. Seriously, are you smart, or are you casual, make up your mind and pick one, then move along. Actually I have made up my mind, I 100% dislike this item, but since its a bit different I feel duty bound to report it. But please, don’t buy one.

Oh, and Nordstrom, any chance of getting some models that don’t have their picture next to the dictionary definition of ‘smug’?

    Button up that sportcoat and it’s like a mullet. Business in the front… party in the back.

    Mmmm…. mullets.

    Well, I can’t like everything, and now that I think about it 100% dislike isn’t that accurate, it would probably be a nice blazer if they hadn’t shoe horned a hoodie into it.

    I think it has a sporty, urban look to it.

    i think it’s the model that makes it suck so bad.

    From a female perspective, I don’t mind the look. It’s not the latest style, in fact it’s pretty common. What I do mind is that even from the picture the jacket looks like it’s made of cheap fabric, which makes the overall look a bit juvenile. It has a one-size-fits-all feeling to it with the puffy sleeve and length, which kills a good sports coat. The pockets didn’t make it look edgy. And I don’t like how they put pinstripe together with the graphic hoodie, looks a bit emo, or that it reminds me of an emo ex-bf, which is NOT good. The black alternative would have been more acceptable if there isn’t a giant red logo on the pocket in the front. And I agree with all of you, the model just made it worse.

    I actually fell in love with this “jacket” when i saw it last year, since then it has been out of stock everywhere that carries it so i’ve never been able to, A: try one on and feel the quality. and B: find an online store that carries it. I still give it a +100% rating in my book :)

    Sorry Andrew, I still think it’s an abomination!

    i do see where your coming from, i don’t really care for the “full” hoodie under the blazer “look”… this (to me) blends good, i do wish there was a place i could get one. either i’m retarded when researching or it really sucks as a jacket… lol.. thanks for responding… :D
