Alex has you covered when surplus rucksacks aren’t classy enough:
That thing is beautiful. The combination of this distressed olive leather with the supple looking black straps, piping detail and flaps is just amazing. I’m a big fan of bags… duffle, rucksack, or otherwise. Additionally, if they are military inspired, leather, and/or use advance materials count me in!
I really thought the CRYE influence would have been more obvious, but I like what Pharrel and McNasty did with the fabric. A “celebration of the silhouette” indeed; you really can’t ever go wrong with all black everythang.
In the first post on the preview of the collab I did, I speculated on it’s wearability. Well if you click through the source link you can check out five pictures in the gallery which seem to answer the question; it’s wearable and not incredibly ground breaking.
LOL at the end of the video “I don’t want assholes like you wearing my shoes”…. oh McNasty you so crazy.
Are you man enough to rock a vest that doesn’t come with soft / hard armor?
I gotta give it up for the use of frog skin camouflage, the two oversized pockets, and that fly asymmetric chest pocket. The tonal tan trim is like the good looking glue that holds it all together too.
RRL has been killing it in the vintage clothing game for a while now, so if you’re not yet familiar make sure to take a look.
Are vests too metro for you though? I’ve never been much for vests, so I’m kind of on the fence as what I would do with this in a street wear setting. Off the top of my head I’d probably throw a nice button up with some texture on underneath it, roll up the sleeves, put some jeans on and just lamp. In a not giving a shit setting I’d go shirtless underneath it in an effort to blend some of the farmer tan I’m already getting a start on. Those pockets look like they would hold at least one beer can each. Damn, just talking through this out loud to you guys is starting to make this vest look pretty damn good in my opinion.
