U.S. Alteration Gets Interesting With Vintage Camouflage

From adding a couple of different Hawaiian looking prints to a woodland camo field jacket in Spring 2012:

To overdyeing and adding embellishments to assorted other disruptive patterned vintage military jackets, and switching out the tongues on distressed Chuck Taylors for Fall 2012:

Available over at Union Los Angeles.  Jackets for $129, Shoes for $88

Mixing camouflages just isn’t my thing.  The only statement it makes in my mind is that you’re a douchebag with no fashion sense. Also, FAIL on putting the ARMY Master Sergeant pin upside down, adding a 4 star general ranking to it, in addition to what looks like an Air Force Staff Sergeant pin…. and for good measure sure why not just throw in that U.S. Navy Chief Warrant Officer 4 pin rotated 90 degrees. *shakes head* It’s painfully obvious someone let these guys run wild in the military surplus store.

  1. As a veteran, I usually don’t get too bent out of shape at camo and such being used by civvies. However when you start randomly sewing on authentic insignia and unit patches it becomes borderline disrespectful. Severely so when you spot some punk who’d never think of serving wearing that stuff without a clue what it really means.

  2. wearing Camo buy itself isnt dumb, but wearing the pins, patches, badges, insignia, etc. is dumb and disrespectful in my opinion.

  3. I don’t either but it does bug me when people where military awards and rank the wrong way.. It also bugs me in movies as well. I too am a vet.

  4. sorry i meant to say “Wear” but I fell victim to auto-spell.

    Our Military’s insignia should not be decorating some f stick hipster’s outfit. Amen & pass the ammunition.
