I'm a very observant person, especially
when it comes to fashion. You'd think it'd be music, but nah... Anyway, here's something I've observed closely over the last year or so: Abel Tesfaye of The Weeknd
IS ALWAYS WEARING A JACKET. Check it out.
So, why? Why is he always wearing a jacket? Here are some theories.
1. He's got really hairy arms.
This one's not very likely because I mean, with all that fame and money, it'd probably make more sense for Abel to get his arms waxed, rather than cover them with long sleeves. But hey, maybe he's afraid of the pain!
2. He's just straight up insecure.
I know it's hard to imagine a man like Abel as insecure, with all of his crazy fans and his songs about sex, but at the end of the day, he's a human just like you and me! He could have insecurities. It's like that time in middle school when I was insecure about my height, so I always wore heels (okay, that's a lie because I'm tall and honestly, what do I have to be insecure about? I'm perfect). But imagine someone else who probably, definitely does that. It's kind of like that!
3. He got a tattoo sleeve and really regrets it.
Oh my gosh, imagine Abel sporting one of those themed-tattoo sleeves. Like a Pokemon theme, with Pikachu running all over his arm, or a Lord of the Rings
theme, with... who's a character from Lord of the Rings?
I don't know.
4. The label makes him do it.
Maybe the label is just trying to start this weird jacket trend? I mean, that's a pretty weird trend to try to start, since it's pretty much a trend on its own in the winter. Maybe his manager is some frat boy who's like "oh yeah dude, you def gotta make jackets YOUR thing. No one else has ever done that before. It'll be so iconic. Let's push really hard on this. Suffocate people with these jackets, man." Ha, that reminds me of this funny (and abandoned) Twitter that's an A&R guy parody
5. He gets really bad pit stains.
Sweating on stage is totally a thing. Maybe he found himself getting horribly unattractive sweaty pit stains when he rocked short sleeve t-shirts! Not sure if there's any other way to hide that... Imagine Abel dabbing himself with toilet paper between every song...
Well, although the excessive wearage of jackets confuses the hell out of me, it seems like these ladies really like it:
