Look, I’m as big of a Weeknd fan as anyone. The guy has pipes and knows how to set the mood. But can we talk about his obsession with flight jackets for a second? Able Tesafaye, a.k.a. The Weeknd, has been rocking the bomber jackets for years and it doesn’t seem like he has plans to change that!

Not only does Able XO almost exclusively wear a bomber during performances, he sells them to his fans at shows, and even has a partnership with H&M with a beige bomber promoting his Starboy album with a ginormous XO in the back.

He’s not alone there; Justin Beiber also collaborated on a bomber with Barney’s, and we know flight jackets are hotter than they were back in the ’90s.

But Able is taking the trend to a new level. He’s got one in green, blue, black, patterned, paint splattered, silver, orange, magenta … once in a while we see him in a jean jacket, blue or black, and sometimes with cutoff sleeves. I know it can get chilly in Toronto, but is he always cold? He even wore a patchwork flannel jacket to Coachella! At least it wasn’t a bomber.

He recently posted a pretty pic of his girl, Selena Gomez, on his Instagram.

He looked great at the Met Ball in a tux with Selena as his date.

Maybe she’s been encouraging him to branch out to other styles and silhouettes. Maybe one day we will even get to see his arms.
