Lightbulb Fascism Uniforms

Fascism professes the profitability of unifying a nation through an authoritarian state that promotes the mass mobilization of the national community towards a veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism (source: Wikipedia).

We can examine the formal political dress or public uniforms of fascist nations and groups and assess their similarities to and differences from nihilism, anarchism, or even Naziism groups.

The uniforms of Fascist Italy, for example, are more expressive and less rigid than those of Nazi Germany but certainly more streamlined and regimented than those of the USA and parliamentarian Great Britain.

Such assessments inform modern day understandings of free market consumer geometry presentations and philosophical compacts between democratic and martial (or pseudo-fascist) nations such as America and North Korea.

Putin's Russia seems very like that.

Are you aware that all of Nazi-era uniforms of the Germans were designed by Hugo Boss? (Military, SS, HitlerYouth, all of them).
