The Palm Cafe on 125th Street and other famous uptown hotspots would be important in the early part of the legend's career and eventually led to tours with some of era's most notable bands. This would in turn eventually help the formation of the Jimi Hendrix Experience which catapulted the musician's work to another level.
On a fashionable note, the mid part of that decade eventually saw the influence of hippy movement which was in full mode and traditional military jackets became in vogue thanks to Jimi Hendrix. The Hussars Jacket were intricately braided formal military coats worn in Europe starting from around the 18th Century and Hendrix often wore one such vintage piece while performing on stage or for photo shoots. Since then, other musicians have copied the look and many fashion designers have since come up with versions of the famous Hussars jacket every other few seasons or so.
