i started working on this post last week and since then i’ve seen jean jackets mentioned on gq and valet. my inspiration for the post was a direct result of the photo above – which i believe is being used as a promo shot for brandon flowers’ new solo album. it’s hard not to notice the jacket before you realize who’s in the photo. it’s an alexander mcqueen jacket that flowers bought five years ago. he said he wears it 90% of his days. i believe it. it looks worn in all the right places.
all canadian tux jokes aside, do jean jackets ever go out of style? i remember seeing ryan adams wear one (pic after jump) when i was in college and then trying to find something like it online. i never pulled the trigger because i knew i would catch hell from my friends. i guess my point being: buy one now, wear it, hide it, and pull it back out when it’s relevant again in 10 years.
