The singer of BLOC PARTY wears Thin Finns. They looked pre-washed though I can't be sure.

This pointless information brought to you courtesy of my San Francisco trip.

Brian, I posted this on the other SF too, but couldn't identify the cut. How'd you like the show? I think I liked BSS a little more.

Did you notice the H&M short M65 on BSS lead singer? I did because my buddy was wearing the same jacket.

I noticed his jacket, and I got some good pictures. I think BSS put on an amazing show. Bloc Party was as expected, but BSS blew me away. You can tell they're Thin Finns because they're tight and tapered, but have the super-low yoke and back pockets. They're way too slouchy to be Kims or Johns, and too tight to be Jims, Ralfs or Svens. Oh, and I saw that jacket at my first ever H&M visit yesterday. I was pretty underwhelmed. H&M is more behind the trends than I expected them to be, and the fit on most stuff was pretty meh.

You were in SF and didn't call me up for Aggro Stance night?

Seems the Bloc Party singer has a thing for Nudies, I remember seeing a photospread of him in some magazine last year before their record dropped and he was wearing Nudies of some sort.

and of course there's that pic of Kaiser Chief's singer jumping in the air and you can tell he's wearing Slim Jims.

BSS? my hipster band acronym machine hasnt figured this one out yet....?

I think the official number is 11.

Arcade Fire is like 5 or 6, but they always have guests playing strings at their shows.

Yeah, and BSS specializes in the horns, while Arcade fire is more about drums and violins.
