Whomever heads up design for leather accessories manufacturer Hogan wasn't paying particularly close attention in American Lit class. We hear Hogan will release a new limited edition collection in July called "The Jack Kerouac Project", six luxury items supposedly inspired by the Beat writer and his seminal book On the Road. We say "supposedly" because we don't think Kerouac would have been speaking out against The Man while rolling cigarettes and wearing a $1590 leather jacket. Or trolling the mean streets in $495 boots with his few worldly possessions tucked into a $1290 backpack. Then again, Kerouac did go to Columbia, so maybe Hogan is just trying to connect him to the university's present-day elite!
