@Mil
Never mind the hate. When I saw the trousers I thought they were like pressed (baggy) sweatpants and even if that's kind of a quirky idea it makes sense in your style.
I think black boots or shoes would've complimented the bag. That is an interesting bag though, are they still in production?

nah, these are the nyco blackhawk pants from '11.
The patch is the vietnamese flag, just says vietnam underneath it. Just learned it's the communist flag today. Need a different hat tbh us military influence + communist flag Oops

Don't think they make SPEAR anymore (only sold in japan), but if you ever have the opportunity to get one get it. Construction is ridiculous.
I believe the whole Line was based off of the UM21.

what? A windbreaker between the office and home is controversial? It's summer here, just want a shell as a windbreaker. Pure function, pure comfort fit, pants fit the way formal pants are supposed to fit. In real life theres more of a contrast between the shoes and jacket, ie the shoes being a red brown.

Are you serious?

the bag doesn't appease me, black and the brown of the jacket clash.

What color should my bag be? Brown???

circular glasses are something few people can pull off in few situations, with the central parting it just makes your face too round imo

Do you read articles in women's magazines that tell you how to dress for your skin tone? Do you also let optometrists tell you what glasses suit your face? Do you think for yourself?

Yeah, they're basically civvy bags with SPEAR level toughness, no radio ports, internal compression sacks or endless straps and clips like the UM21 tho. They put some MOLLE on there tho which comes in useful, I usually stick a carabiner on there for carrying wet umbrellas or shopping.

Here's my big daddy UM21, it's my car, I've carried everything from groceries (internal) to a microwave oven on it (using external load plate):

and it's Japanese illegimate son:

Big Bee, those pants are rad, will have to look for a pair online I can study more closely, don't think I've seen the 2011 blackhawks, still got my good ol 2001 helicrews tho.

The original w)taps logo features a sickle sans hammer so taps is all about mixing that ideological iconography if you want. Most of the patterns were based on US and British gear originally but it was never specifically pro NATO, it was just taking cool stuff and re interpretting it to life in Harajuku.

been thinking about this comment all day, been really annoying me.

If anything a pair of round, simple frames are the EASIEST kind of glasses to pull off.

Fashionable square frames look harsh on most faces.

Is it because squared off frames are in fashion that you believe they look better? Squared off frames look harsh on a lot of people, round frames are much softer and complimentary to most faces.

Interested to know what other fukers think about this, to me it's so obvious that round frames are easier to pull off.

I think round glasses make eyes look like fannys in a pair of crotchless panties and would encourage me to want to poke them with a rigid finger.

Have you tried star shaped glasses? There again maybe not such a good idea as your eyes would then look like rusty bullet wound bum holes, that said a lot less likely to receive a poke, unless of course from those with faggot fingers.

Tbh round ones suit you mil.
