And here I was, worried…

I keep worrying that McQueen had lost its edge.  The recent lines have been relatively lacklustre, barring the odd stunningly good outfit.  I really shouldn’t worry when this jacket exists:

McQueen Textured Leather Biker Jacket

While it uses a traditional biker jacket as its basis, there’s a nice twist in moving the belt to the neck forcing the high collar.  I like high collared jackets (a rare commodity in men’s fashion bah, humbug, etc.) so this really hit the spot.  Then there’s the cut which feels reminiscent of armour, meaning this jacket wouldn’t look out of place on a horse, let alone a bike.  It’s this structural element that differentiates it nicely from the raft of biker jackets that litter both high & high street fashion.
