actually I bought a coat the other day that makes me feel like a dashing Brunswick hussar, I don’t post selfies on this blog but maybe I should if you guys would like to see it?? it fits in with the theme???
They have their place; I consider them very casual or work wear, something you pick when you expect to get grimy or sweaty, or perhaps bloodied. I personally am fond of the look of denim and an olive green M65, but I think wearing camouflage beyond very specific contexts, such as Heavy Metal fashion, can come off as rather juvenile and comical. I own an old West German army jacket I wear every so often, and an 80s woodland BDU shirt, but they’re generally either for work, lounging at home, or when I ditch the tie for an Iron Maiden shirt. I have a series of articles in the works on how to incorporate classic 20th century military attire, such as British and German uniform items, into an every day wardrobe in a classy way, as they’re more amenable to that. LARPing as some modern tactical warfighter on the street I personally consider to be in very bad taste.
