How does one 'shrug off one's jacket'?
A video or picture would be by far more helpful than words if possible to get.

    I agree a video would be better, but not having one, my explanation would be:

    You open your jacket and lift to slide it off both of your shoulders at the same time, then you put your arms down straight (possibly a little behind your body) and move your arms and shoulders up and down rapidly (as if you are shrugging) so that the jacket sleeves slip down your arms and the jacket comes off. You usually catch it before it drops to the floor.

    We can't link videos here. But you can google "Louis Tomlinson taking off his jacket during This Is Us press con".

    There is a pretty good video showing the shrug action.
