Military fashions remain front and center on the runway each season; look no further than Marc Jacobs’ fatigues-inspired lineup and Sacai’s and Rodarte’s inventively revamped military-based collection. “Military jackets have a sophisticated and classic look,” says Ben Menendez, sales manager for Harvest Industrial & Trade Co. Ltd. (asi/61670). “We have seen the military jacket evolve into an iconic piece in the fashion world.” Because military jackets rank high in the fashion pecking order, Menendez says, they make perfect gifts for employees, especially those constantly on the go. “The military jacket is a great piece for traveling because it provides the wearer with a comfortable, loose fit,” he says. “It would certainly be a welcome surprise as a gift for employees.”
