A Newry teenager is just entering her ‘Paul’s Boutique’ jacket wearing phase we can reveal.
The jackets are a popular phenomenon around the greater Newry area with girls aged usually 14-19 but sometimes one will find a 20 something year-old woman desperately clinging to her youth despite losing her dignity in the process.
We spoke with one teenager who told us:
“I swear I actually have no fucking idea where or who Paul’s Boutique is. I just wear it because all the girls in my year are wearing them. They are totally shit too, I’m fucking freezing in this weather, there’s no heat in them at all baah.”
