Rothco in Magazines & Movies

Here are a few quick bits of Rothco products in a leading fashion trade publication and a couple of recent movies.

First, there are a couple of pictures of Rothco's Black Jungle Boots in MR Magazine's Fall 2009 Menswear review. The first, in an image called "Dark Star Rising" features our Jungle Boots with in a mostly black ensemble of "functional" garments.

The second is certainly one of the most unique uses of Jungle Boots I've ever seen, worn with a nylon jacket and a pair of board shorts.

Here are a couple of more pictures from the film "Notorious" which chronicles the life and death of Brooklyn rapper Biggie Smalls aka the Notorious B.I.G. In pictures from the movie, as reported by Rothco sales associate Brian Kearney, Biggie is clearly wearing a Rothco Fatigue Cap and M-65 Field Jacket. A great example of the influence military clothing has had on hip-hop fashion over the years.

Last is an image from the movie, Paul Blart Mall Cop . We can't be quite sure this is actual Rothco clothing, but that sure looks like Rothco's White Short-Sleeve Uniform Shirt, Black Clip-On Necktie and Deluxe Silver Security Enforcement Officer Badge.

Seems no matter where we go, Rothco is everywhere!!
