I think I remember the reason he does that is because Martin Sheen actually has some real life injury that makes it so that he has to put it on that way.

58

u/Guy_Number_3 Aug 13 '22

You mean like Martin Sheen? He literally can’t put on a jacket any other way because of his arms so they just made it part of the show.

14

u/Shochan42 Aug 13 '22

Afaik it is due to an old shoulder injury.

And I can confirm that since I dislocated mine I do the exact same manouver to avoid pain, since I don't have to fling by bad arm above/behind my back that way.

(yes, yes, I know, rehab would help).

u/SADMEP_society Aug 14 '22

Dog, I feel you. I have old shoulder injury, and then it affected my shoulder girdle so much now my other shoulder has become an issue. Do your therapy! I know the time can be annoying, but it will be worth it, even if it just prevents further issues, like I failed to do.

I literally only clicked on this post to make a comment about that. I never even watched the show, but I always thought that was the most badass way to put on a jacket. I probably spent about 10 hours trying to figure out how to do it when I was about 12 or 13 years old.

And now that I've also got a bad shoulder, (which is why Martin Sheen puts jackets on like that in the first place.) it comes in handy way more often than I thought it would.

u/JazzySmitty Aug 13 '22

Been doing it my whole life (I think on account of my scoliosis), seeing tutorials on how to do it like that one actor (can't remember his name or find a video on it, but there was a compilation of him throwing on jackets like a cape over one shoulder in many different shows and movies).

e: here we go

(E2: meant seeing the tutorials was funny since it was something I already do)

u/Accomplished_End_138 Aug 13 '22

Yeah. Been doing it my whole life as well (at least that last 30 years i can remember better) no scoliosis, just more fun.

u/TrepanationBy45 Aug 13 '22

Context: fashion
Fire = hot
Hot = good
Ice = jewelry
Fire + ice = drip
Drip = good fashion

Now you might be thinking to yourself, but why male models? and the answer is that this is a school for ants, and needs to be at least three times bigger.

10

u/Landler656 Aug 13 '22

So it either describes fashionable clothes when used as a noun, or that an item is fashionable if used as an adjective.

Noun: They have some serious drip.

Adjective: Those shoes are dripping.

I think it originates from the idea that someone could be "dripping with style" or "oozes charisma."

u/semantics88 Aug 13 '22 edited Aug 13 '22

Throws the jacket overhead, you hit the ceiling light with your hand, light globe/thing falls on your head, you fall forward over your coffee table breaking it, table collapses and sends a full glass of water flying into the tv, you’re nearly motionless on the ground, but not because of the pain, but due to the weird straight jacket from the coat being pulled over your head and arms while falling. It’s finally over.

It’s why I never try to be cool.

quickest/easiest way to learn is set coat on floor, inside facing upward, collar towards you, grab coat by the insides of where the armpits sit, and throw it over ur head/ one shoulder, whichever is best for you, while also slipping your arms through. after a while, itll be instinct
