When we first saw Justin Bieber performing hits from his holiday-themed Under The Mistletoe album on the Today show this morning, we couldn’t take our eyes off his christmas sweater-meets-varsity jacket attire. And then we realized it wasn’t just any ordinary christmas sweater-meets-varsity jacket, it was a $1,650 one by Junya Watanabe.

Look, we’re not saying Justin Bieber doesn’t have style (though his is of the teenage popstar variety), but seeing him wear a design by Rei Kawakubo-protege Watanabe is kind of like seeing Britney Spears wearing Alexander McQueen — which, thankfully, hasn’t happened.
That said, we love the look. Now, if only he’d lose those silly earrings.
You can buy the Biebz jacket here and check him (and it!) out in the gallery below.
You can also watch him wear it while he flubs the lyrics to his Jackson Five-inspired version of “Santa Claus is Coming To Town”, which is probably a good source of schadenfreude for all the menswear bloggers out there currently crying into their cold-pressed Stumptown coffees.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
