Boys in the band (jackets)

Posted on September 12 2008

I don't mean in a Ramones leather jacket kind of way, I'm talking about ‘marching band geek' jackets. Yes the very same kind of band that every 80's film took the micky out of is now becoming cool again. Band jackets and the music industry have been having an on again off again love affair since the Beatles appeared on the cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album dressed in eye-catching custom-made military-style outfits in satin dyed day-glo colours (The suits were designed by Manuel Cuevas, who also designed Johnny Cash's black suits). The years have seen Adam Ant, Michael Jackson, and now Coldplay rocking the look. It's also thank in a large part to the military trend we have been seeing the last few seasons bolstered by the fall collections of designers such as Alexander McQueen and Temperley London .
