Nehru jacket is colossally coveted both in the Southeast Asia and also the western hemisphere. It is named after Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was the first Prime Minister of the sovereign India. The Nehru jacket is classed after the mandarins in Imperial China but simultaneously it amalgamates features of conventional Indian menswear with British tailoring.
The Nehru jackets was made exceedingly fameux in the west during the late 1960s and the early 1970s by the Beatles. O’er the early 1970s, the celebrated British rock group Beatles travelled to Rishikesh, India to study meditation techniques, and soon the group’s members began wearing Nehru jackets setting a new fashion trend. Sean Connery wore it as James Bond in Dr. No, a popular 1962 British spy film.
In 1964 Jawaharlal Nehru was featured in Vogue magazine wearing his customary attire. Vogue was one of the most swish fashion influence globally, and Nehru jacket, named after Prime Minister Nehru, started to gain titanic popularity. The idiosyncratic Nehru jacket is a close-fitted, single-breasted (one row of buttons down the front) coat with a stand-up collar and no lapels.
The vogues gyrate with season, what is considered passé for one generation becomes vogueish for another. In the late 1990s the Nehru jacket began to appear in fashion magazines again as a desirable garb for both men and women. In 2002, Italian fashion designer Ermenegildo Zegna designed a “guru suit” with a Nehru jacket, and former U.S. president Bill Clinton was seen in a tuxedo with a Nehru jacket in the summer of 2001.
