    Was a breezy 60 out today... with the cold wind blowing in from the north I'd say take 10 degrees off that easy

    The difference is that ACU is still in use and very unique to the US Army. Woodland camo became ubiquitous which is why it is more accepted for civilian wear. As a veteran, I can't stand to see anything ACU outside of a uniform. It's just one of those feelings that you can't really understand without having worn it.

    Parrot's wings way too long. HE needs to visit the tailor asap. Plus he needs to tone down on the color combo... too #menswear for me

    I respect this, but, just because one doesn't serve, doesn't mean we don't share in the sacrifices made by those who do. As I mentioned, i come from a military family, and although it felt weird at first to wear these (USMC Camo btw), I feel like I've earned the right seeing what I've given up based on the actions of my parents and grandparents. Surely if you have children you could understand that they also made sacrifices for your service...

    Great summer vibe, I'd love to see some lighter shoes with this. Loafers, sneakers, even flip-flops would be better.

    You both seem to feel like NYR's pants are a badge of honor or something. It's just a fabric/pattern; not a military decoration.
