Don’t Wear it to the Airport: Ashish spiked denim jacket

This item was reported by Eva, who points out that it’s probably illegal in several countries.

We don’t know about that, but we DO know that you couldn’t expect too many hugs while you were wearing it. And that makes us sad.

It’s by Ashish, and it’s £810 at Browns Fashion. We’d want those spikes to be solid platinum for that.

    It looks like something Sigue Sigue Sputnik would have worn.

    It looks like something out of the closet of a 16-year old metalhead somewhere in the 80’s… before he put the patches on.

    Perfect for the people who hate to be hugged I guess, but awful idea to put those studs in a acid wash denim. I like the cut of the jacket though.

    I actually found a blog on google of a guy who made a jacket that looked exactly like this, studs and all. And he got a used jacket and studs from the craft store, probably cost a 1/20 of this thing. It’s funny how many “edgy” things in the fashion world really take no effort to make (or in the case of ripped clothes, destroy).

    Perhaps it could be used for self-defense? It’d be hard for an attacker to get a good grip on a torso covered in spikes, and all a person would have to do is swing their arms to cause serious damage. Can you imagine what those sleeves could do when filled with a solid arm, swinging at full force?

    I hate the color of the jacket. Plus the spikes just make it look absolutely horrendous. Not to mention it’s a safety hazard. It’s really more of a costume.

      Yeah, this is a god pointy – I like my personal space too. I’m thinking this could come in really handy when I want to go sale shopping. Or just ….shopping.
