PRETTY GREEN JOHN LENNON JACKET

Imagine fashion heaven, it’s easy if you try! The new Pretty Green AW collection from brit-pop bad-boy, Liam Gallagher, has landed and one of the key pieces is the iconic Lennon overshirt. This military styled overshirt is modelled upon John Lennon’s famous US Army shirt that he wore throughout the early 70’s and featured on the cover of his “Live In New York” album. This iconic album was recorded live from Madison Square Gardens in August 1972 and

As legend has it Lennon was walking through a German airport wearing a vintage US mac when he was approached by an ex-serviceman who offered to send him his vintage fatigues. Lennon gladly accepted and soon received a vintage US Army issue OG-107 overshirt. Lennon, whose strong anti-war feelings were well know, wore the shirt over the coming years before gifting it to girlfriend May Pang. The original jacket is now displayed in the John Lennon museum in Japan.

This season’s Pretty Green shirt borrows stylistically from the classic Lennon shirt while calming the design slightly. It is available in two colours; navy and khaki, and retains an authentic look and feel. Some of the military badges have been removed to create a slightly cleaner silhouette. The shirt has shoulder epaulettes and a slight herringbone – giving it a vintage militaria feel.

Buy the Lennon shirt today for £125.
