More like a men's hoodie, these jackets cover up the head and face and leaves two 'goggle-slots' to see through. Borrowed from Italian couture, these jackets have become the latest in-thing to hit the fashion streets in the UK. Not a new concept, they were created in the 1980s in homage to the protective gear worn by drivers in the Mille Miglia, the endurance race which started in the 1920s. It's only been recently, however, that they've started to pop up in large numbers.
Now, let's be fair. A burqa is a floor-length, hotter-than-hell, "modesty" garmet that women are (for the most part) forced to wear. In contrast, these "boy burqas" are really just wrap-around hoodies (more storm trooper than oppressive garment). So, enough with the boy burqa already. I want to hear more about men's undergarments.
