Military clothing has always been a great inspiration for menswear, it's timeless and even seem to be fashionable these days.

In this Challenge, i don't expect you to look like GI Joe, rather to incorporate one or more military items (inspired or genuine) in your outfit, be it Classical Menswear or SW&D style.

Let it run two weeks.
Entries accepted until June 29.

Can I use borrowed clothing? From a vintage store. I have an idea but I don't want to break rules.
I'd say that the basic requirement should be that they are your clothes, for any challenge. Otherwise it's just playing dress-up.

I get that, sure. I'll be using mostly my own gear but there's something I want to use.

@Clouseau I’m working abroad right now but I think I’ve got the right gear for a good ensemble. Probably will give it a go!
