• From The Flight Jacket To The Dress Shirt

    The classic MA-1 sleeve pocket gets a new home:



    Subtle military design cues work well.  Trust Japanese brand Digawel to do it right.

    I find I’m always shoving my keys and store receipts in my MA-1’s pocket sleeve.  I don’t know how well a heavy set of keys would work in this pocket on a thin cotton shirt, but I could definitely puff it up real nice with a week’s worth of Starbucks and Costco receipts.  Flex smarter, not harder is what I always say.

    Some are cool, some really are lame.

  • You May Think You’re Cool But Trust Me You’re Not Fan Cool

    Even if you’re Asian, just no:


    Trust BAPE to dive head first into ultra niche soft goods.  This is something I’d expect your drug dealers cool aunt to have on her wall.  Right away my mind just wrongly went to assuming this is display fan and not a functional fan.  If you’re a hypebeast you’ll probably see this fan in one of your favorite stores, and shit your drop crotch pants as you awkwardly grab for your wallet.

    Go forth and purchase; ¥10,290 ($103 USD) over at BAPE.

  • Your Metro-sexual Sergeant Deserves A Gift

    He never did you wrong. Show you appreciate him with this bracelet:


    You’ll quickly become his favorite and breeze through the ranks, trust me on this one.  What metro-sexual sergeant wouldn’t want camouflage toned glass beads on a bracelet with their rank insignia in gold?  Your thoughtfulness will never be forgotten.

    It’s a real shame that only a sergeant bracelet exists.  You know the guys at all ranks are going to feel left out.

    $179 out over at Mr. Porter.

  • North Face Purple Label Camouflage Mesh Collection

    A fanny pack, tote bag, and backpack:

    Not something I’d cop, but North Face definitely does do some unique things with the Purple Label which I’m normally not mad at.

    I gotta ask, who wears fanny packs? Old men? Guys with asthma?  Girls are going to see that inhaler from a mile away so if you’re still in the game you might want to go with something opaque.  “What’s in my fanny pack? A GUN.”  that will impress them more than if you tell them you run out of breath crossing the street to get to urban outfitters.

    Backpack ¥13,440 ($132 USD), Tote ¥15,540 ($152 USD), Fanny pack ¥11,550 ($113 USD) over at Nanamica.

  • Dazzle Camouflage Gives Kaleidoscope Invisibility

    With this DRKSHDW by Rick Owens jacket:


    Dazzle camouflage is what they used to paint on warships in WWI.  If someone was to look at your through a kaleidoscope while you were wearing this jacket I’m pretty sure you’d just cancel out completely.  I have no idea if people still own kaleidoscopes and I can’t even spell the word to save my life, but I’m just throwing that out there.

    $1120 over at The Corner if you’re daring enough to pull something like this off.
