The documentation says that $closest() is similar to $.parents() but stop at the first parent found.

But $('.item').closest('.item') return itself...

The docs are actually quite clear about the behavior:

The description at the top is "Get the first element that matches the selector, beginning at the current element and progressing up through the DOM tree."

There's even a table listing out the differences between .closest() and .parents() with the first one being that .closest() "Begins with the current element".
