    Default signature bumsters/Builder's Bum

    What are the meanings of "signature bumsters" and "Builder's Bum" in the following?

    1. McQueen reworked his signature bumsters in subsequent collects.

    2. In a typically witty McQueen way…we had the equivalent to ‘Builder’s Bum’ jeans as a high fashion statement.
