The Khaki Jacket, Manual

If the military-inspired khaki jacket is more than ever in tune with the times, it remains a timeless that we can wear whatever the season or trends. Although with its organic and shade unisex look, it has the ability to participate brilliantly in many dress puzzles…

The moss green khaki dark through the olive and other colors mottled camouflage, khaki is unparalleled to infuse jackets combining spirit “military surplus” and pulls Saharan Africa.

The khaki jacket on the catwalk

At Versace, Donatella gives pride to the bellicose tones while injecting their fancy enough to appease their martial character. We could see his muses and warm in embroidered khaki boxy jackets with sequins or in casual arched light khaki jackets .
For its part, the woman Alexander Wang borrowed their military officer jackets, shortened it carries on a baggy low waist.
Flexible and a wide strand, the khaki camouflage jacket home Saint Laurent for its melange of any model in a surplus US Army. In true grunge tradition, it is associated with micro slip dress rather than a lattice.

Its most common cuts

Khaki jackets (or camouflage) slightly arched by a elasticated waist, barely reaching above the buttocks, equipped with two patch pockets and two breast pockets and devoid of normal lining will be easier to find.
Also shown without difficulty straight jackets just down below the buttocks, but also short and square with varied designs models (see here and here).

Where to find?

At a thrift store . They remain the best place to get your hands on a khaki military jacket capable of giving an authentic casual silhouette. However careful not to go for too much or too rigid jacket, which could tip the look in the costume category.  At Current / Elliott . Launched last few seasons, “The Infantry Jacket” is an olive khaki jacket with a loose cut massively seduced fashionistas (see here and here).  Comptoir des Cotonniers . A collaboration between the brand and the California Frenchy jeanneur J.Brand their Saharan khaki jacket also proves easygoing as totally timeless.  But also at Urban Outfitters, Mark & Spencer and T by Alexander Wang…

Pitfalls to Avoid

Under the pretext of wanting to give some originality in their khaki jackets, some retailers are quick to parry the cool nickname badges. We will flee such models. To be credible and not “cheapiser” the general appearance of the garment, the patches will either be original (military surplus) or be chosen and sewn by the holder of the said jacket.

The folk embroidery are acceptable only if they prove quality.

Beware elasticated sizes, which can sometimes thwart the fell of the jacket.

The loose and detailed models can pack some silhouettes.

The shade of khaki is to choose carefully, the idea being to opt for a shade or too washed out or too full.
