An outerwear that received quite a lot of space here at the Manolo is the so-called Field Jackets derived from a classic M65 jacket. This is a model that has been very popular for many years now and that is good both for a more casual attire, but also over such as suit to break the formality a bit. A jacket that is somewhat reminiscent of the model is Safarijackan and that is on the hefty rise again. Especially so here came the summer makes it out really good in its unlined design in cotton or linen.
Safarijackan began to develop in the late 1800 ‘s when primarily wealthy Europeans visited its colonies in Africa to go on safari and hunting. The jacket was sewn up with the tailors normally was used and was a cross between jaktkavaj/jacket and the outerwear worn by military personnel at warmer latitudes during this time. The paint was in khaki and almost exclusively in cotton. The focus was the function and it was almost always a waist belt and lots of pockets to get all the things needed for a full-day safari.
Safarimode from the past.
Decades later it became popular as fashion items after having been seen on people who primarily Ernest Hemingway, who was an avid big game Hunter, but even Teddy Roosevelt and Clark Gable. Roger Moore as James Bond wore different types of Safarijackor in three of her Bond films; The man with the Golden gun, Moonraker and Octopussy. This also increased on the status of the safarijacken during the late 60s and early 70s and in 1968 became the safarijackan top fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent, when added it to one of his legendary collections, Saharienne.

We do not follow the trends of Manolo and fashion slavishly, and may find that much of what we call fashion may be a little short-sighted. Therefore, we monitor nor the catwalk each season. After that he skimmed through next summer’s trends so we can see that many of the fashion houses in many cases added one or more safarijackor to their collections. Preferably in an up-to-date and premium workmanship as in suede.
We think we either should go for a little rustikare performance in jackets cotton. Here you can feel free to opt for a jacket from one of the many outdoor stores that sell affordable safarijackor. Otherwise, they are models that are sold in the linen really smart and will have a great feel and look when worn it for a while and linnet format itself and a little kinks here and there.
