So much menswear is "military inspired" these days, but none of it's actually seen a warzone -- unless you count Dolce and Gabana's Spring runway show...ummm, disaster! Strap on the real stuff instead, with Alpha Industries
War-roomed in beautiful Chantilly, Alpha's a Virginian outfit that's been...outfitting...the US Armed Forces for the last 50-odd years; they're just now moving their focus towards civilian clothing after a change in their DOD contract status, and insist the military's high standards ensure their gear's quality from "flight decks to civilian sidewalks", which you most likely know as "sidewalks". New-for-summer duds include a slew of tees like the French Blue "Flight Apparel" with a faded Alpha logo, and the presumably tongue-in-cheek "Bernie Tee" with a picture of an old-timey Navy pin-up girl and the slogan "Gee I wish I were a man...I'd join the Navy", plus tactically fashionable pants like the rugged olive green "M-65" (first issued to Marines in 'Nam), and the modern-er cargo-pocketed "Battalion Pant", described as being "designed for the soldier and workingman", though its elastic waistband implies it's also well-suited for the out-of-workingman. Slightly less militaristic sweetness/randomness includes NASA steez like a blue, replica space jumpsuit, as well as less funny but actually useful sacks like a cheap ($20) 100% nylon, all purpose gym bag in "Sage Green" or "Replica Gray" -- presumably replicating a time before colors
Since potentially sometime in the future it'll cease to be swelteringly hot, Alpha's also got racks upon virtual racks of jackets, from leather bombers to field coats, which -- unlike Spring D&G numbers -- are "fatigued", and not just tired.
