The Destroyer lands in London

In our humble opinion this jacket takes Nike to a whole new area of badassness.

The letterman jacket is instantly recognisable (think American frat boys) but Nike’s interpretation, The Destroyer Jacket, is of a different class.

Alas, it is being sold as such. Seven types are being made each embroidered with the city in which they will be sold. Only 35 of the London jackets have been made, all of which are heading exclusively to Selfridges in the capital. The price? £300.

Each edition of the City Destroyer is customised with local City graphics and colours inspired by the sport teams and cultural movements in the cities of New York, London, Tokyo, Shanghai, Rio De Janeiro and LA. The London jacket's red, we're guessing, being a nod to Arsenal. Unlikely to see Alan Sugar wearing one during The Apprentice final, then.

A classic silhouette, part peacoat warmth, part bomber-jacket tough, it is presented in a bespoke case featuring signed artwork by illustrator Harry Malt, The images depict a performance by Gallows from the Destroy to Create launch event that promoted the new range (check out the video below). Each also includes a metal pin badge by jewellery designer Duffy, recreated from the destruction of top cyclist Mark Cavendish's bike. Poor Mark.

The Destroyer (the name alone suggests you're average accountant can't pull it off) comes with pre-softened leather sleeves, two layer water repellent body, Thermore fill in wool body for maximum warmth and minimum weight, high-grade nylon lining with sphere technology, and a signature film-finished, bonded, reverse coil zip on the chest.

The Destroyer pack will launch in London on Monday 20th December, the other city Destroyer jackets will also launch in their retrospective cities concurrently.
