If you really want to spend a bunch of money to look poor, United Bamboo's new Paper Bag Jacket is just the item of clothing for you. The one of a kind unisex jacket is made out of brown paper bags and coated with varnish for a nice stiff look and embellished with little bits of silver duct tape for that little something extra. Bonus points if you follow this model's direction and shiver a little bit while wearing it.
