Jerry's Suede Jacket in "The Jacket"

This is why comedians can’t have nice things. Jerry, rolling in cash from recent shows, decides to ball out on an expensive suede jacket with candy striped lining, but like a true amateur, doesn’t check the weather before he wears it out. An evening spent with Elaine’s frightening, intimidating father goes awry when Jerry tries to turn his jacket inside-out before they venture out lest it get damaged in a snowstorm, but Alton Benes isn’t fucking with the stripes and no one’s going to “walk down the street with me and my daughter dressed like that.” In the next scene, Jerry’s pricey jacket looks like a stain-tatted carpet.
