Fashion Fridays: Burberry’s Fall 2014 Line Includes A Mesh Marina

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Burberry-Fall-2014-Mesh-Tank

Scroll through the advertisements in the latest issue of your favorite fashion magazine, and you might find a familiar object in an unfamiliar place: Specifically, the mesh marina in Burberry’s autumn/winter 2014 men’s line. The mesh tank is a staple in Burberry’s native England, where it’s better known as a string vest, but it has long been associated with working-class slobs, thanks to depictions like Andy Capp and Ras C. Nesbitt. Could its place in a collection from one of the country’s most iconic luxury brands have anything to do with Jamaica, where the undergarment has been re-purposed as a rude-boy fashion staple? We think so.

Throwback Thursdays: Stone Love with Ninjaman + Shabba at Biltmore Ballroom in 1989

One of the most interesting recent turns for Jamaican music has been the re-emergence of an ’80s and ’90s aesthetic both in music and fashion in the last year. Aidonia, Konshens, Iba MaHr and Mr. Vegas are just some of the Jamaican artists reaching deep into their closets and dusting off their mesh marinas, diamond sox, kangols and gold chains for their latest videos. Just yesterday, we featured yet another example of the on-going revival with Assassin aka Agent Sasco’s video for “Sekkle an Cease.” Featuring all of the key ingredients of a classic sound-system dance (jerk chicken vendors, Guinness, whining gyals), the video, down to it’s grainy VHS-quality, perfectly matches Sasco’s old-school voicing patterns over the throwback vibes of Jah Snowcone’s Nuh Fraid riddim.
