Do you know what a Nehru jacket is? Historically, it was modeled on the Indian achkan or sherwani, a garment worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India from 1947 to 1964.
Although the jacket, and its variants, have been popular at traditional Indian weddings for some time now, many of you may remember the James Bond film Dr. No, where the villain (Dr. No) immortalized the jacket.
One of our clients recently made a great looking Nehru wedding jacket, and one that we think, has a very modern look in this dark navy cloth.
(Imagine this in a fun plaid!)
