all you need are two extra bedsheets.

a couple of reasons.

(1) it's a bit cropped on my long torso.

but more importantly,

(2) it's a pretty serious piece, and it actually looks a lot like a bulletproof vest. whenever i've worn it, i've gotten uncomfortable sideways looks from police officers, security guards, and grandmothers.

Interesting challenge. Too bad I don't feel like digging up uniforms and gear. I could forgo the clothing part and just toss say an AR30 or a Barrett over my shoulder while wearing just street clothes.

Regardless, it's a cool piece.

Because it's been around since 88...You can find them on eBay from the 80s and 90s, there's a lot of versions.

This is very ethnocentric of you. You obviously have not encountered the goth-ninja armies of northern Japan. (10)

 

Although as a vet, there are very few entries so far that say military to me.
