The Nehru jacket

We have been invited to design and tailor a unique Nehru jacket for a gentleman’s wedding. The Nehru jacket is a hip-length tailored coat for men or women, crated in India in the 1940s. The jacket essentially blends the collar of the achkan, historically the royal court dress of Indian nobles, with the Western suit jacket. It was popularised by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India.  (Source: Wikipedia).

More recently, the Nehru jacket was made popular in the 60s by no other than The Beatles.  In August 2013, John Lennon’s teal nehru jacket, with mandarin collar and slightly flared sleeves was bought by a fan for £7,000 in an auction, reported the BBC.
