High-end military steez in Back Bay

A touch of military steez is fine for everyday-wear, but take it too far and you know the Russians will go Georgia on your ass. For subtler Armed Forces influence, try Nom de Guerre.Nom's an NY-based line from a motley crew of designers (Marc Jacobs ex-, DJ, graffiti artist, W editor) all out to achieve a groundbreaking look dubbed "high end Army-Navy outpost". Fall includes army-green suspenders that seem naked without grenades, grey button-downs straight out of Fleet Week, and a sweet black polyester "tactical shirt", which matches a button-up front with a black hood in which to hide when you've run out of tactics. Jacket-wise, they've got a black polyester-shell "regulation" trench with zip-out wool liner, and a black "Motor" bomber-style number with quilted lining, wool ribbing, and an ultra-light cotton/polyurethane outer shell that molds to your body while accessorizing nicely with your appliances. Because even actual servicemen don't always want to look the part, there're also burly buffalo plaid deconstructed cotton button-downs in charcoal and white, and a two-button grey cupra-lined wool suit with an optional five-button grey wool vest -- but beware, 'cause if you take that three-piece look too far, Russia will make you do its taxes.
