Band Geek

When most people consider the phrase “I’m with the band,” a marching band isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.
 
But if you’ve ever seen a drum corps in full regalia or watched a band move in perfectly timed precision down a field, you know that being the tuba player in the back line comes with the kind of amazing clothes any rock star would covet.
 
Since we’re paying tribute to school traditions, we thought we should bring up this truly stylish area that often gets overlooked. Who hasn’t taken a look at those majorette jackets, marching boots and tuxedo pants and wanted to try the look on for themselves? If you got your hands on these band-related fashions, how would you style them?
