safari jacket is a garment originally designed for the purpose of
going on safari; the word "safari" entered English from Swahili in 1890.
Popularized by turn-of-the-century
Anglo African adventurers, safari-style jackets were engineered for
comfort and function in the African bush.
A safari jacket is commonly a light weight
poplin jacket, traditionally
khaki in color, belted and may or may not
epaulettes (compare pictures), with four
or more expandable bellows pockets. Safari jackets have been worn as mainstream
casual clothing since the 1950s
