    Looks a lot like the mac coat I have from them - different color, same pockets and buttons etc...tho mine's made in CA and has a liner, and yours made in Japan (nice!). Link to mine for comparison. Otherwise yeah I'd go with both technical and field, maybe utility. I have another similar jacket from them with epaulets and it's called a tactical.

    To be fair, that shirt came before the tragedy.

    obviously.

    but there's a difference between Nike "unofficially" sponsoring the Hale-Bopp mass suicide in san diego (ever see that SNL commercial?), or Starburst having to pull the "Juice is Loose" campaign after Al Cowling chauffeured OJ Simpson around the freeways of LA,

    and

    creating an image like that. it's understandable sports rhetoric but it's not all that clever and kind of tone deaf in any case.

    Nice! Love Wilderness Experience. McHale looks interesting. Frameless packs?

    @Takai or anyone else know what this is? It looks old. Greenish selvedge. Heavy with thinnish aluminum buttons. Odd upward facing hooks on either side.

    EDIT: selvedge is brown and red
