it can work, but military garments don't really lend themselves to fashion because they're built for layering and mobility

pic related for example, the parka doesn't have a particularly great silhouette even though it fits properly

omg w2c?

Never wear matching camouflage pants and top. It should always be one camp piece (fleck parka, but no fleck pants) or you will look like a soldier/maniac.
>>
>>9176649
as long as you arent full military gear it's fine as an accent piece.
>>
>>9176699
so many designers have made military inspired clothing and collections it's not even funny.
>>
>>9176760
>military inspired

I was talking about milsurp itself, not clothing that looks like milsurp.

What do you guys think to digital camo?

>>9176649

the only milsurp item I have is a US cold weather parka from like the 90s in woodland camo. It's really nice and does a good job of insulating but I feel like if I wore it anywhere in public I'd look like the unibomber or a terrorist.

Keep in mind that:
>digital camo is pretty ugly
>you should never wear any garment from your own country's armed forces
>you should never match camouflage pants and tops
>you should avoid wearing more than one pattern at the time: go for a camo parka and plain tops/pants or for camo pants with a plain top, etc

An olive m65 is the best fucking jacket you can buy. Not that warm, but tons of utility and you can wear it with fucking anything. You can even wear it with a suit and tie.

Just avoid camo.

Milsurp as a fashion item can be done a couple ways. You can wear the pieces unmolested as a statement, or you can dust off those sewing skills and make/modify an interesting and unique garment. Milsurp boots are obviously great in some cases, like the classic McRae jungle boots or the old FFL jump boots.

Knoch would probably have some solid insight about milsurp fashion, but I haven't seen him post in a few days. Here's his tumblr, http://herrurst.tumblr.com/ , there are loads of examples.

Velvet black Dylon. After a long while of wear with it through rain, sweat ect, you will begin to see the pattern underneath. It's that simple. That guys jacket has seen a wash cycles to get it where it is.
>>
>>9178187
*a few wash cycles.

Any way. Just dye it black with Dylon. It's better than Rit as it is more concentrated. Dylon has pretty potent dyes. Also, do not get that shit on your skin. hehe. It's worse than permanent ink, that way.
