The US Navy and Marines pics in colour are so good Benelli. I'm guessing they're taken in '46/'47? Of forces occupying former Japanese held islands. The rusted knocked out LVT is really interesting, not to mention the olive green utility pants worn by some sailors.

As much as flyknit frolics in the forest?

You've really got more in common with progenitor's of the workwear aaesthetic than you think - that being you're a racist, homophobic alcoholic.

Think I would fuck your gf/wife in the loo efter meating her for 10 minutes.. We'll make some friendly jokes about your wide jeans and about your weight, go to the toilet at the same time and then it's on Smiling peace.

Tanks Bennelli, did some more research and those same Eyerman photos you posted appeared in black and white in a 1944 issue of Life. Wonder if they were artificially colorised later or color prints were always there, just too expensive to print interiors in color then?

I'd assumed the women were wives posted out after the war but they're nurses in civvies. Guess that LVT was put out of action just a year previous, rusted fast.

I'm confused, are either of these external frames or are they just chairs?

Has anyone ordered from http://www.e-workers.net/ direct or via proxy?

There seems to be little stock elsewhere and the site is really confusing. Son of a Stag have a few items but as usual not much on their website.
