PRODUCT REVIEW: The Fred Perry x Nicholas Daley Bomber

The new Fred Perry x Nicholas Daley collab is predictably [flames emoji], especially this corduroy bomber. Making a bomber in corduroy is a fucking MOVE. When I wear a bomber I always worry I look like a prick especially because, like every next guy in Berlin, I have an undercut. (My coeditor on my last review: “even though your face is pixelated you can still tell you’re a fuckboy”.) But make a bomber in corduroy – beloved by: beleaguered protagonists of 70s paranoia films; charmingly forgetful college professors in the 70s; everyone else in the 70s – and you kind of look sophisticated.

Easily the best corduroy wearers were Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid though. A few years back I went to a halloween party where the theme was “doubles” or “pairs” or something like that, and me and a pal donned cord jackets and cowboy hats thinking we’d look like Butch ’n’ Sundance – everyone just thought we’d come as Jack and Ennis from Brokeback Mountain. I guess there’s more than one way to be a cord clad cowboy 🤔.
