HHH Shopping Guide | Military Cheap

RDD USA, one of my favorite sources, helps soldiers and citizens dress for pennies. While the average size of a U.S. Navy Seal is something like 5'7", soldiers in Sweden are all apparently around 8'7" with broad shoulders (I really wish I knew more Swedish soldiers), so err on the small side when ordering. It can be hit or miss, but that's ok when you get a great jacket for around $10.

{1} Military Russian Tank Top Telnyashka Type G.I, $15.90

{2} Italian web cotton belt, $5.90

{3} Swedish OD Work Jacket (used), $10.90

{4} French Wool V-Neck, $8.90

{5} Swedish OD Work Jacket, $10.90

{6} Swedish Off-White Parka, $13.90

hollister. finally! swedish military clothing is one of the last design classics yet widely undiscovered. - marvelously cut with lots of suttle details. - real designer pieces - only that the designer is completely unknown. but one can feel that there is something going on. ... everybody with only the slightest appreciation of well crafted and unconventionally yet elegant designed casual wear has to have alt least one Swedish M-59 Field Jacket (or work jacket as hollister calls it). and for winter it also come in loden. - amazing stuff! - if you do not yet know these things, get, get, get them: a discovery that will surely make your day and might even change your life...

Atrocious. This clothing looks inspired by Red China. Just because your economy is gone to hell and the country has a radical far-left regime in power doesn't mean you need to dress like Chinese peasants. There's no excuse.

this blog attracts some pretentious twits.

AMAZING! The french T and white parka are perfect staples. That white parka reminds me of the gorgeous 10th Mountain Division uniforms.
