Many fashion items appeared during the war, and they are still the “darlings” of designers. Such as a bomber jacket.
It originated from the heavy-duty flying leather jacket used by the US Air Force to protect against wind and warmth during World War I. It was designed specifically for the cold, non-enclosed cockpits of US fighter jets at that time.
The color of bomber jackets tends to be black, military green or leather original colors. The lining is usually made of eye-catching orange satin, so that in the event of a dangerous emergency landing, the pilot can turn the jacket over and ask for help.
Although this design no longer has practical functions, it has been retained due to its bright color contrast.
In the movie "This Killer Is Not So Cold", the little girl Matilda wears a classic bomber jacket.
The windbreaker also appeared during the "World War I".
The trenches are wet and muddy all year round, and water often accumulates in the rainy season.
The two main military uniforms at the time were woolen coats and raincoats. The former is not waterproof and will become very heavy when wet; the latter is waterproof, but its rubbery texture makes it very unpleasant.
The windbreaker came into being.
Now, the windbreaker has become a clothing that everyone can wear on various occasions, and has gradually evolved into a fashion element.
During the Roman Empire, when husbands went to fight on the front lines, their wives would prepare a scarf for them to hang around their necks for them to bandage and stop the bleeding during the war.
Later, in order to distinguish between soldiers and companies, scarves of different colors were used, and ties came into being.
Like corsets and skirts, ties show people's gender characteristics and symbolize a sense of rational responsibility. This was exactly what men were pursuing at that time.
Horn button coat
The horn button coat originated in Belgium. With its thick fabric and windproof and wear-resistant characteristics, it was listed as a must-have item by the Royal Navy during the "World War I".
Of course, to talk about the iconic "character" of the horn button coat, one has to mention a movie-"Paddington Bear". From 1958 to the present, Paddington bears have been wearing the iconic blue horn button coat.
Because the British Field Marshal Montgomery particularly likes to wear this kind of coat, it also has a name called "Montgomery Coat".
Until now, horn button coats are still popular in all countries, whether it is Japanese TV dramas, Korean TV dramas, British TV dramas, or American TV dramas, the horn button coats are indispensable.
School uniforms first originated in Europe, but at that time they were still called uniforms.
The Ivy League has not only cultivated promising young people, but also cultivated a dressing trend called Ivy Style.
Most of them use plain shirts or sweaters as the base, casual suits or baseball uniforms as the exterior, and pair them with jeans or slacks. This is a business-oriented but student-like outfit.
Ishizu Kensuke promoted this "Ivy style" to the world.
During a trip to Princeton University, he discovered the magic of these East Coast student costumes. So he named this style the Ivy style. In his opinion, Japanese men at the time had a great prejudice against fashion, and his own brand urgently needed to launch a new product line for young people, so that young men could change their views.
The popularity of the ivy style in Japan is almost synchronized with that of the United States. In the manga "Fantastic Boy" serialized by Osamu Tezuka since 1961, Saburo Onishi has already put on an ivy-style costume.
Originally used as clothing for campus culture and sports leagues, under the admiration of Japan, it has unexpectedly become one of the current fashion elements.
The appearance rate is very high, and the unisex Martin boots are made by a doctor named Martin.
He accidentally broke his foot while skiing in the Alps. In the process of rehabilitation, in order to make his walking easier, Dr. Martin and his friends designed this kind of rough-looking but very comfortable boots.
It was Peter Townsend of The Who that brought Martin boots into the public eye.
He has an extreme paranoia about the way of wearing Martin boots—wrap the laces around the grooves of the soles and then wrap them around the calves, and roll the trousers to the calves, exposing the position of the laces.

This way of wearing has aroused the resonance of young people who are keen on punk culture, and they have imitated this way of wearing. Martin boots have also changed from the original health shoes to one of the single products with the highest matching rate on the street.
bracelet is today commonly used accessories, but its origin may we all think, from hippies. Hippies are young people who rebelled against social customs and politics in Western countries in the 1960s.
They have no declarations or leading figures, but use demonstrations and protests to express their opposition to nationalism and the Vietnam War.
They promote non-traditional religious culture and criticize the values of the middle class in Western countries.
Because of the influence of religious culture, hippies wore rosary beads and became vegetarian. Their clothing influenced the local people's aesthetics. Gradually, everyone began to learn how to wear colorful bracelets. This style has also been used for reference by designers in major shows. Now, bracelets have become daily accessories.
This lady's personalized item was one of the must-haves for European men in the 17th century.
At that time, men liked to wear stockings, but because the socks would slide down, they would use a few straps to fix their shorts and stockings together, and garter stockings came into being.
After the 19th century, men began to wear long trousers. Although garter stockings fell out of favor among men, they have become a favorite of women.
In movies, more and more sexy actresses wear garter stockings, making them synonymous with sexiness.
For formal occasions, a tuxedo is generally a standard for gentlemen.
The front of the dress is flush with the abdomen, and the back is to the knee joint.
The tuxedo originated in England and evolved from the cavalry uniform in the 18th century.
At that time, when the cavalry was riding a horse, the front and hem of the long clothes were rolled up, pinned to reveal the colorful lining, which looked very beautiful, which made other arms to follow suit.
In the middle of the 18th century, civilians and officials put on this short-cut cavalry costume, and the tuxedo was born and became popular in Britain and its colonies.
By the end of the 18th century, tuxedo had become a popular fashion in Europe and America.
This style has been imitated by gentlemen in many countries, and tuxedos have gradually become clothing for attending high-end occasions.
