The Beatles Make Nehru Jackets Big

You can thank the Beatles for helping to bring Nehru jackets to the scene in the 1960s. The band started sporting the jackets when they became students of Eastern spirituality. The jacket was named after the first prime minister of India, Jawaharwlal Nehru. He was a fashion icon and the thigh length closed collar jacket was his signature look. Although the Nehru jacket eventually went out of style, it never really went away and continues to show up on runways and celebrities from time to time.
