Thanks to Natick's Soldier Systems Center, GQ Magazine called Natick "America's Fashion Capital" in a recent post on their website.
The article says Natick has been a source of fashion innovation in the United States through the development of military clothing since 1949, giving us the combat boot, fatigue shirt and camouflage print.
"We're countering the argument that New York is the style capital of America. Fashion's real first city? Natick, Massachusetts," the article says.
The G-1 flight jacket is called into attention by the article, which was developed at Natick Soldier Systems during the Korean War and has been in production ever since.
