It happened! Gina from Brooklyn Nine-Nine wore one of the Coach T-Rex sweaters and I couldn’t be happier as I’ve been talking about this for over a year now. The Coach T-Rex motif first appeared last year at New York Fashion Week for the 2016 Spring/Summer collection and this version of the sweater was suggested here at TV Ate My Wardrobe as the ideal Gina attire.Coach now produces a variety of T-Rex styles including the knitted original in several colors, the varsity sweatshirt (as seen on Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and a crew sweater with a patch logo. I prefer the latter two and on a particularly rainy and blustery day in New York a couple of weeks ago I maybe popped into a Coach store to say hi to this sweater collection and wondered if I could justify spending that much money on one item (sadly I couldn’t). A sale purchase perhaps. As this is my first post back after my honeymoon it is serendipitous that this item showed up so soon after this trip and on the character I thought it was ideal for. I maybe lost my shit at the B99 cold open. Okay I definitely lost my shit.
The below picture was taken on a far sunnier day than the shop visit and now I have bathroom decor dreams.Other recent purveyors of this style have included Winona Ryder at the recent Coach NYFW show and Michael B. Jordan during Comic-Con.
Be sure to keep an eye out for other future wearers as I’m sure I will post about them either here or as part of the TV Ate My Wardrobe newsletter (which will be returning very soon).
