Fashion and war don’t seem an obvious pairing, but the military jacket is a fashion staple. It may take the form of a double-breasted dress uniform with brass buttons and epaulettes, trimmed in rock star braid, or it may be a khaki combat jacket, worn with Doc Martens and a scowl.
One of the most enduring of military jackets is the elaborate regimental dress uniform with its rows of horizontal gold braid across the front and gold tasselled epaulettes on the shoulders.
Its origins are the 18th centuryhussars, the Hungarian light horse troops. Their pelisse, or braided outer coat, was high-collared with fur cuffs and fur lining. Althoughdesigned for pomp rather than comfort, this uniform became the model for many forms of military dress uniform.
From there, the many variations of the original hussar’s pelisse became a rock and roll trope. Michael Jackson wore many forms of it in his stage costumes. He was the King of Pop, so he dressed the part, posing like royalty in scarlet dress uniform with gold tassels and braid.
Lightweight jacket made with 82% polyester and 18% spandex, providing maximum comfort and movement. Jacket comes with zipped front pockets, a standup collar and set-in sleeves.
