Men's Fashion: The Marching Band Jacket from Lupe Fiasco to Chris Brown to Michael Jackson

Being a nerd has never been so cool

It's never been so cool to be a nerd. Not only do nerds currently rule hip-hop, but they also dominant the current styles. From the most preppy L7 (square) clothes to borderline bi-focals. . . dressing nerdyish is too cool for school. And the marching band jacket falls right in line with these trends.

Kanye West, Chris Brown, and Lupe Fiasco all seem to be fans of the band jackets. And the new Converse commercial featuring Santogold in a marching-band jacket has seemed to make the trend even more popular ... everybody wants a band jacket now!

Lupe Fiasco has some of the most meticulously designed
marching band-esque jackets I've ever seen.
I'm sure Dr. Romanelli helped to create a few.

Wearable marching band jacket are actually pretty hard to come by. The style is popular, but only a few brands and stores carry it, so the jacket is sold out everywhere. I found a website that carries some unique variations of the marching band:




$60.50



$69.50



$241.50


Life Research Group LRG carries variations of the
marching band jacket too




To be honest, the marching band jacket style isn't just about marching band jackets. The style is actually a mix and cross-over between marching band jackets, military jackets, varsity jackets, and motorcycle jackets. Both Chris Brown and Lupe Fiasco sufficiently mix these styles in their wardrobes. And as long as you have one of those type jackets you can easily gain the edgy looks that the superstars create.

If you happen to come across "marchmiliVarmoto" type jacket, scoop it up quick because it most likely won't be there for long.


This new style is also somehwhat of a tribute to Michael Jackson- who started it all. You can find many of these retro style jackets on eBay.com for a really good price.
