A little history about the military style

From time to time, styles that set the standard return; fashion historians say that a fashion resurfaces every 15 or 20 years. In 2000, many men went crazy with a very peculiar trend: pants, shirts and jackets with camouflage or military print.

When World War II ended, men wore their field uniforms daily. Women did too. The detail is that they had nothing else to wear nor money to invest in other clothes.
