Customized Alpha Industries M-65:

The $375 “Anarchy Field Jacket”…. since removed from the Barney’s NY website.  Nothing says anti establishment like showing up to the protest fitted in your mass produced anarchy jacket.  Save yourself the ridicule, buy the $180 blank Alpha Industries one, get a few different marker colors, and come up with your own designs / witty phrases.  You’ll thank me later.  Instead of everyone thinking you’re an undercover cop “HELLO FELLOW PROTESTERS, IT IS I, ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT KEVIN WITH MY *CUSTOM* JACKET”, people will see the way you made the blank jacket your own and show silent respect.

New from Dolce & Gabbana for A/W 2017:

Paisley print background with the dog admiral painted portrait on the front? Oh wow.  I was thinking about this this shirt all day, and almost thanked a yellow lab for his service when I was out for a walk earlier.  He was a working dog with a 1000 yard stare, so thankfully it wouldn’t have come across as too weird.

I feel like the tucked in look the guy is rocking is very on brand, but too uptight for this particular shirt.  Call it disrespectful to the design if you want, but I think I’d try wearing it unbuttoned with a clean white crewneck t-shirt underneath.  Maybe a gold cuban link chain around my neck, with some plain black tapered denim on the bottom and some clean black chelsea boots.

$675 over at Dolce & Gabanna.  As they say “you gotta pay to play”… thankfully there’s also a $475 long sleeve t-shirt, so you can still flex even if you’re poor.  That last part was a joke.  I feel like I’ve been out of this blogging thing for a while I probably need to ease you guys back into my writing style (if anyone still follows this).

Thoughts?

The Comme Des Garcons ‘Peace’ t-shirt:

Comme-Des-Garcons-Camo-Sleeve-Peace-Tshirt

$195 CAD ($155.79) from SSense.

Your girlfriend always wants to get you something really awesome for your birthday.  She pays attention to everything you say, so she knows what you’re into… military stuff, camouflage, that olive color etc.  You’re a nice boy, but like to think you’re edgy.  She saw this shirt on SSense and saw it had so many things you like, including that non threatening yet potentially edgy “Soldier of Peace” painted lettering along with the bonus flipped “Strong lover” just to let em know.  *clicked, CC info type in… shipped… wrapped*.  Flash forward two weeks to your annual special day… the celebration of your birth.  You tear the thoughtful camouflage pattern paper off the glossy white SSense box and take a deep breath while you raise the lid.  Instantly your brain says “OH SHIT”, but your smiling cheek to cheek and you give her a huge hug and a kiss, and say thanks.  You instantly feel like a piece of trash, because you’re already scheming and plotting on ways you’ll have an unfortunate accident, rendering the shirt unwearable.  The look in the picture is the exact look you see in the mirror when you’re alone and try it on for the first time.

4×4 squared.  Holy the location in this video looks intense:

New V8 biturbo from Mercedes.  Lime green is possibly the worst color imaginable for a vehicle.  I suppose in the video though it stands out, which is obviously the point.  Drive that color in the city though and you’re just trying too hard to get noticed.

Mercedes-G-Class-SquaredThat thing can sure go in rough terrain, wow.  No wonder militaries around the world use Mercedes vehicles in the same G class as that (the military ones are not as showy for good reason).  I have to much work to do to go down a google rabbit hole right now, but I wonder how Jeeps compare to these?  Is there basically no comparison and the Mercedes blows it out of the water?  Are the Jeeps amazing, and you’re paying a lot for the Mercedes name?

You can find out more information, and see of pictures on the Mercedes G Class Squared website.  Unless you have somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000+ to spend on this, don’t get too excited.

Nike Lab x James Lavelle:

Nike-Mo-Wax-MA-1-Destroyer-Jacket

Available at Haven – $700 CAD ($563 USD)

Haven describes it as a bomber / varsity hybrid.  Talks about the lustre of polyester, supple wool blend, and premium tumbled cow leather.  Are the cows tumbled (tipped?) or is the leather tumbled after the fact?  Kidding fam.  I feel like I have to call audibles on jokes on this site sometime.  Many you guys think there’s something wrong with me for talking about this stuff in the first place… gotta be safe and assume a joke-question about tipped cows might not be caught.

The jacket itself is pretty hot, I must say.  Classic MA-1 pocket on the sleeve, and they tossed us another outer pocket on the chest.  The tonal olive fabrics they use definitely work.  What the hell is up with the black unintelligible patches though?  That shit is straight ISIS.  Like if ISIS had a dope stylist, he (yes HE… I’m not trying to be sexist here but ISIS is not going to have a female stylist) would lace the whole crew in actual ISIS versions of these, along with the all black Balmain bikers and some black on black Common Projects Achilles’.  Think of how fire they would look posted up with the black balaclavas and AKs too? WOOOOOOOOOOO, now that’s what I call marketing terror to the fashion obsessed Western world.  The best part would be, even though take home weapons of war are no longer allowed, jackets definitely are.  When the whole lot of them are dead I’d call a favor in to have one of these show up at my doorstep FedEx International Priority.  I’d deface the patches, and USA USA USA the shit out of the jacket.  Might even be a savage and keep the blood on the fabric for authenticity, carry around the certificate I obviously would have copped from the DNA lab showing that the blood does indeed contain human and goat DNA.  Can’t fade me.  If you run into me, better have Allstate with you.  All day.

James Lavelle (who I hadn’t heard of), started a UK based record label called Mo’ Wax.  He must be doing alright for himself if he is famous enough (or has enough money) to have a Nike collab… I haven’t heard of much in their discography tbh.

Thoughts?  Would cop in current version, or war take-home ISIS version?
