Jawaharlal Nehru and his Bandhgala jacket

The first thought of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is a man of extreme simplicity and innate style. With his eloquent speech and sartorial elegance he was indeed a shining star in his era. Today is a day to remember him for his great works and also for his stylish outlook too.  Well renowned for his Bandhgala jacket and the Nehru topi, he did have a modish aura around him.

However, the strangest part of the story is that Pandit Nehru himself did not wear this jacket named after him. The jacket was designed after the South Asian achkan or sherwani, worn by the first Prime Minister of Independent India.

The Nehru jacket is a hip length coat with a mandarin collar. This varies from the one wore by Panditji in its design – his jacket reached was a knee length one, while the Nehru jacket reaches up to the hips.

The Nehru Jacket – Bandh Gale ka coat (Hindi for close necked jacket), is believed to have been designed in the 1940s and has become a part of the formal wear in the subcontinent. The jacket attained its popularity when classic bands such as the Beatles and Monkees wore these. This jacket also started featuring in various James Bond movies, as the villan’s attire.

However, we like to remember him not only as a senior member in our freedom struggle and post independent development, but as a star who carried the classiness of new culture. From then to now, the Nehru jacket has come a long way. Today we see a lot of movie stars sporting the Nehru jacket. Stars like Saif Ali Khan, Fawad Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Ayushman Khurana are a few among the many who have taken the style to a whole new level.

We would like to end with one of his statement from his famous “Tryst with Destiny” – “It is fitting that at this solemn moment we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.”
