Were Kurt Cobain to return from the grave and find himself stranded in Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates for all eternity, he’d have no problem recreating his ‘Nevermind’-era look here at Jack & Jones. The Scandinavian brand may be experimenting with iPod pockets, hound’s-tooth-print boxer shorts and ‘full-frontal vector graphics’ (whatever they are), but the core of its clothing range is pure Seattle circa 1993: plaid lumberjack shirts and reasonably priced blue denim.
Cobain, who suffered from scoliosis, or curvature of the spine, was a relatively compact 5ft7, but the longer of limb will find themselves well served by the Jack & Jones jeans wall, where most styles are available in a rangy 36” leg. ‘Indigo is in our blood’, says the press release. Sounds nasty, but fortunately this rare medical condition hasn’t prevented them from settling in the UAE.
