Did you ever believe that America came to have an Emperor? Well, the fact about this issue was just a jest among American people over the years. However, in the year 1859, an American citizen by the named Joshua Norton had declared himself as the sole Emperor of the United States. After that declaration, the next step he did was to wear an Emperor suit or majestic uniform as he trucked down himself along the streets of America. The majestic uniform that Norton wore consisted of a hat with feathers, a costless sword and army coats and boots, mixed imperial epaulets made of chocolate wrappers. Although it was just a joke, everyone who sees Norton marching on the streets still bowed their heads as a sign of respect greetings for a king or emperor. While Norton was wearing the majestic uniform, he was allowed to dine for free in any restaurants. Apparently, when Norton died in the year 1880, an estimated total of sixty thousand people attended his burial ceremony given with full military honors. To keep his memory alive, Norton’s tombstone reads as “Norton I, Emperor of the United States, Protector of Mexico, Joshua A. Norton, 1819-1889”.
Another interesting fact about uniform is the reason why men’s suits have buttons on the sleeves? Do you know the significance of the buttons on the sleeves? The button designs on the sleeves of men’s suits originated from Frederick the Great, a ruler of Prussia from the year 1740 up to 1786. This ruler had a passion for attractive and smashing uniform attires in his armies. But most of his armies don’t like the idea of wearing attractive and smashing uniform attires especially in undergoing trainings and practices under the heat of the sun. The army men were only prone in wiping their faces frequently with the use of their sleeves, which causes the sleeves to look loathsome. Because of this, Frederick came to an idea of sewing erosive buttons on the sleeves of his army men’s uniform to keep the sterile look of the uniform. Up to this day, the design of buttons started out by Frederick has been a part of fashion style for men.
