#2. BOB MARLEY // M-65 JACKETS, ADIDAS

Until Bob Marley, casual military garb was the purview of dictators and revolutionaries. But the most famous Rasta of all time turned the M-65 jacket on its head, employing its deep front pockets for weed storage, not ammunition, and making it the choice jacket for a generation of pacifist stoners. And just as he humbly spread the good word of brotherly love, Bob unassumingly bolstered the Adidas brand, nonchalantly sporting a half dozen of their sneaker models over the course of his career and making track suits stylish well before Run DMC.
