Im liking the 2nd "in history" link. What we should do, is bring back the Zouave craze, and get young people to wear the jackets, fez's (plural for "fez" is what?) pantaloons and gaiters.

It's the baggy pants. The kids go for the baggy pants.

That first link looks a bit like Bizet's "Carmen."

Reminds me of why American bomber crews wore baggy pants during missions over Germany and occuppied Europe in WW II.

Bomber crews didn't wear baggy pants. You're thinking of paratroopers:

Reminds me of that song General Wolf likes to sing - Take me out to the Battle
my AKA only wore the fez when he enlisted. I have pics of him later wearing a slouch hat or as my CO calls it - the Louisana River Boat Captain's hat.
