Uniforms are truly genderless. Once made from cotton drill and heavy functional flannel they are now made in lighter weights, khaki cotton twills and denims. It is mainly the styling details and the insignia that lend military attitude. Badges for fun that lend a message.
It is the style details which dominate creating military overtones to the garment - giant patch pockets; buttoned pocket flaps; drawstring pull on jackets; the flying suit - and of course the military leather jacket as the essential accessory.
The contrast between two simple military garments couldn't be more marked. One is simple, structured and tailored with strict red piping and military buttons the other is unadorned indigo denim simple sailors jacket from Nimes. Yet they are both indigo denim demonstrating two sides of the same style question.
