Named after Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India, the mens Nehru Collar jacket is a hip-length jacket featuring a standup collar and no lapels. After its original fashion debut in Vogue Magazine, the Nehru jacket found its way onto a wide variety of famous personalities including the Beatles, Johnny Carson, Sammy Davis Jr., and the Beach Boys’ own Mike Love. The present fashion of the mens Nehru Collar jacket was born from two fads: the ethnic awareness movement of the 1960s, and the stark minimalism of the “mod” look.

The Nehru jacket can be worn with a Western trouser made from the same fabric as the chosen jacket (which is the essential make-up of the Nehru suit). Or the jacket can be paired with breeches (special baggy pants known as Jodhpurs). This combination has always been a favorite among Indian royalty.

As shown in the photos above, this jacket is single breasted with no lapels, has 5-6 buttons up the front, and is embellished with a slightly fitted band collar or Chinese collar. What Mr. Nehru used to wear was a jacket with a collar slightly open in the front-this is why they are also known as Band Collar jackets. Nowadays, however, the overall style of the collar has been modified so that it may be completely closed around one’s neck and fastened with a little hook. This style has been proven to enhance the beauty and elegance of the jacket. This jacket includes one breast pocket and outside two stomach pockets, with two additional inside pockets. The Nehru jacket usually has one or two slits in the back.
