I'm an American... wtf is a rucksack?
a real cool thing. too cool for muricans.
Not so sure about that. I'll contact him again tomorrow. Most of my dress shirts have a poor fit at the shoulder width. Since tailors can't (easily) fix this, what would you recommand me to do?
Just got a 70 wool/30 cash Piacenza hoodie. Sleeves were a tad short so I used a professional steamer to stretch them a bit, and so they did stretch quite nicely.
Is it OK to alter shapes or length of knits with steam? I mean from one side the fabric is damaged but from the other it is not a Space Shuttle to be careful that every little millimeter of fabric retains its original form.
Like a nutsack, but spelled differently.
It is ok, tailored garmets are shaped using steam and pressing prior to sewing together. It is very common, however don't do it too often, or it could wear the fabric. Also, as son as you bend your arms a bit the wrinkling at the elbows will make it scrunch back up.
It's an evil backpack that you fill with MREs, snivel gear, ammo, demo and water. It leaves welts in your shoulders and a bow in your back. Nasty things they are.
And it wreaks havoc in public transportation.
Some tiny little ROTC cadet almost knocked me out of a crowded bus today with a ruck the same size she was...
Actually Rucksack is the German word for backpack.
ROTC kids are worse than privates.
I dunno. I think their brass is to blame. For some reason these kids have the full sized rucks with containing all their field gear on while walking around campus on a freaking monday. In addition to their textbooks. If it was one gung-ho wingnut I'd get it, but imho when every single kid in the unit is fubar'd blame the CO.
I agree in that specific instance but, in general, ROTC kids are worse than privates.
Anywhere to buy Neapolitan shirts in London?- Barba, Finamore, Truzzi, Borelli etc
