Influence of Marine Corp Jackets on Fashion Trends
Remember the sporty and stylish look of Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson in the film -A Few Good Men-. Their uniforms’ along with their power-packed dialogs and histrionics played an important role in the film. Also, it makes you realize that a person in uniform commands respect on-screen, as well as, off-screen, and that must be the reason for the entertainment industry’s obsession with military uniforms. Actors, singers, fashion moguls and even politicians have all at least once in their careers displayed their patriotism wearing Military uniforms.
To cash in on the patriotic fashion trends, many businesses, including online stores stock a variety of Military Uniforms, Jackets, accessories, etc. Marine Corp jackets have a long history; they have been in use since the beginning of the 19th century. These uniforms have the rare distinction of displaying all the three colors of our national flag. Though, the dress has undergone a few changes from its earlier version of the blue jacket combined with red trim in the 19th century. In the modern days, there are primarily three categories of dresses. Blue, Blue-White dress and evening dress, though evening dress is for a certain rank of officers only.
