A pricier number by El Alto terms, turn this gaudy jumper into the pinnacle of vintage chic aesthetic. You’ll be fighting through the piles of clothes to find a jumper like this.

Politicise your wardrobe with a Mitt Romney 12’ hoody. Nothing needs to be said other than don’t. 20 bolivianos for this uncomfortable piece of outerwear.
