Iconic Leather Jacket Grudge Match – Week 4

Posted on 07/11/14

Well, after a series of incredibly close and fraught clashes of design and fashion prowess, we have our first victor jackets – those of Wolverine, Indiana Jones and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator. While they’re a little spattered and tattered with the viscera of their fallen enemies, they’ve shrugged them off and are ready to go for round two.

We took a little break to focus on Bee in the City last week, and we’d like to take this as another opportunity to thank everyone who helped out, and everyone who took part. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, and we’re hoping that we might be able to bring it back bigger and better next year.

Anyway, where were we? Oh yeah, about the jackets being ready to fight again. Well, we’re hoping that they are – we didn’t ask them or anything, but they’re probably good to go for another round. It might be quick a short and decisive bout otherwise. We weren’t exactly going to sit down and interview the jackets, we’re passionate about leather, but not that passionate!

If Wolverine and Dr Jones ever actually came to blows, it’s probably fair to say that it would be a fairly short fight – Indy’s whip is hardly going to hold up against Wolverine’s unbreakable metal claws, and the same goes for his fist fighting, really – though we wouldn’t want to hurt the feelings of the fictional fellow. Indy is welcome to try though, it’s certainly a fight we’d pay to see, and we’re sure an Indiana Jones/X-Men crossover is somewhere in the ridiculous five year pipeline of superhero films to come.

Good thing it isn’t an actual fight, though, but a fashion-off for the ages – which is probably the first time that has ever been said. Or written. Maybe even thought.

So what’s it going to be? Wolvie’s yellow and green (or brown, depending on which film you happened to catch him in) full-fat statement of a jacket, or Jones’ more understated, rough-and-ready brown bomber special?
