If you can’t kill them with bullets, kill them with style:
Most of us (oh just me?) will never see combat, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dress-up some of the looks. Vintage M-65 inspired pockets, buttons, and a wool/silk/linen blend all combined into a slim fit blazer? Yea… hook a blogger up, I’d crush it on the mean suburban streets here with that. I can kind of relate to combat… you know, it’s like a war zone around any given downtown Starbucks here; dodging venture capitalists’ assistants, sidewalk dogs, and people texting with their heads down while walking. You spill that triple pump mocha latte on my combat blazer and it’s over Kevin! Well maybe not “over” over… I’ll definitely be disappointed though, and have PTSD until I know the stain will come out.
I’m not sure why the khaki version has huge gusseted pockets, and the navy has smaller pockets which are not gusseted and have a different flap. If you plan on ordering either you probably should email Private White V.C. and ask them to clarify. My choice would be the khaki with the smaller pockets & nicer flap, but gusseted.
Like I just started saying – If you haven’t got into blazers yet, it’s never too late.
