bear in designer jeans

A few years back, I fell in love with a Paul Smith vest that I came across in the pages of GQ magazine. It had cutouts of wings hand-sewn rather crudely (in true Paul Smith fashion) on the back. It was a witty juxtaposition of the playful and the classic. Up to today, I have never seen a vest as hip and stylish.

Paul Smith's bear (an item that was sold with a tee at his boutiques) also has the signature hand-sewn look, that deliberate naivete that I find quite charming. But Paul, can you make another one with the signature stripes, please? I want one that matches my shirt.
