Jamie Hince attended the ETAM show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall Winter 2014-2015 on 25 February 2014 in Paris, France. The English guitarist, singer, songwriter for "The Kills" (also known as Kate Moss's other half) wore an Alexander McQueen Bespoke cream and black Glen check double breasted jacket. He wore the jacket over a white shirt, black denims and brown distressed boots.

I love the beautiful coat with the classic check fabric. Especially loving that Jamie wore the coat with the collars upturned. I do so too, not being a rebel but it keeps the neck warm and it shows off the nice details underneath, in Jamie's case the black contrasting felt under-collar which nicely matches his jeans. It is great that being a bespoke coat, he got to choose all the interesting elements, including the brown buttons which added a nice finishing touch.

Following the opening of the menswear flagship on Savile Row in October 2012, Alexander McQueen has since set-up a workroom in the basement of the store to include Bespoke Tailoring. According to Alexander McQueen, bespoke clients will be measured by the in-house Head Tailor, who hand drafts and cuts the pattern whilst fitting the suit through the make process. Following the initial appointment, there will two to three fittings subsequently over a period of eight to ten weeks. Bespoke clients are able to choose from an extensive range of classic and exclusive house fabrics, patterns and prints. House styles will be cut with the signature McQueen pagoda shoulder and a precise silhouette. Prices start at £3,600 for a two piece suit and £2,880 for a suit jacket. Made To Measure services are also available, with delivery between 6 - 8 weeks. Prices start from £1,735 for a two button single breasted mohair suit.

Jamie Hince wore the same coat for British GQ's 25th Anniversary issue last year, with the lapels / collar turned down. Which look do you prefer?

There is also a similar jacket within Alexander McQueen's Spring Summer 2014 collection. You can find out more info and shop the jacket online from Alexander McQueen.
