Happy Veteran's Day!

U.S. military servicemen in denim fatigues during training camp

It’s Veteran’s Day. Don’t forget to thank the members of our Armed forces for their service today.

While today’s military uniforms are mostly made of hi-tech synthetic fabrics to maximize durability, breathability, comfort and camouflage, there was a time when denim was the fabric of choice for military garments. Blue denim work clothing was adopted as the standard for the U.S. Army in 1919, and thousands of servicemen in the Army and Navy wore jackets, shirts, coveralls, pants, hats and packs made from the material from the 1920′s up through WWII.
