Historically the military has been a driving force in innovating men's clothing, dating back to the 1900s when gear created for British soldiers abroad proved too useful to abandon when they got home.
Here are the top 10 items we have the armed forces to thank for:
Originally commissioned for American pilots by Gen. MacCready in 1929.
2.) Duffle Coat
Manufactured to Britain's Royal Navy specifications during World War II.
3.) NATO Watch Strap
First made for the British Ministry of Defence in 1973 and known as the G10.
The Rolex "Milsub" made for the British armed forces in 1957 wasn't the first military wristwatch but it is the most iconic.
5.) Bomber Jacket
Introduced in 1931 for the Unites States Army Air Corps.
6.) Pea Coat
The original made for the U.S. Navy dates all the way back to 1881.
7.) Trench Coat
During World War I only British officers were permitted to wear it.
The khaki story dates all the way back to 1845 and the British forces in India.
9.) Cargo Pants
Dates back to 1938 and Britain's Field Service Dress uniform for battle troops.
10.) Desert Boots
Most likely derived from the boots of South African soldiers worn prior to World War II.
