An updated take on the iconic style Michael wore on his 1982 album cover, the suit is made from lightweight twill with a three-button cuff jacket in a slightly slimmer fit than the one singer wore in the height of the oversized 1980s, and pants with a few less pleats. The Boss x Michael Jackson collection includes three unisex tees to celebrate the king’s diamond jubilee, all of which will be released in Boss stores worldwide on August 29.
