TD Tombstone Flannels Are Back!

Friday, October 18th, 2019

This year’s layer-slayer sports updated buttons & trims.  Still in our beloved Soft Brushed Cotton Stretch now in our new 3-color plaids & heather solids.

Made from a mid-weight brushed cotton “stretch” woven to deliver comfort and warmth, our TD Tombstone Flannel is a semi-fitted button-down shirt featuring a number of important details specifically tailored towards our customer.  For TD’s “fast draw” access, we replaced the front 2 bottom buttons with low-profile, plastic snaps that will allow the wearer to access their concealed weapon faster and help reduce the chance of getting hung up on the shirt hem. There are 2 large chest pockets, with the right side sporting a handy sunglasses loop.   Small branding hits on the front pocket and back neck add that extra attention to detail.  Our Tombstone Flannel’s standard fit is tailored to drape naturally over the waistline, helping to conceal your firearm and extra mags.  As always, we strive to give the customer value and quality in all TD products.

PDW Raider Field Pant 100HBT

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

Expertly Made, Rugged, Feature Rich, Utility Field Pant



The Prometheus Design Werx releases their best selling Raider Field Pant design in a new, rugged, 9oz, 100% cotton, herringbone twill fabric.


This pant design was inspired by the vintage USMC Dungaree and reimagined as it would be made today with a modern fit and updated functionality. Featuring ample pockets for today’s EDC items, work-wear type hand pockets clear tool and pack belts, double reinforced seat and knees, a diamond gusset for freedom of movement, no-loss slotted buttons,  no-twist, custom made delta ring clip points, all in a clean, streamlined, straight leg silhouette and regular fit. The durable, 9oz HBT fabric is custom milled and closely follows the original vintage dungaree fabric. Built in the USA.

The Prometheus Design Werx Raider Field pant 100 HBT is available in Vintage Fatigue Green, All Terrain Brown, and Motor Pool Gray.


The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:


“When we set out to create this non-cargo pocket type field pant we immediately thought of the classic WWII era USMC Dungaree. This was a design that was totally dialed towards utility, durability, and field use. It was an obvious and great place to start. We built the fit around a modern regular straight leg silhouette that supersedes flighty trends and ridiculous cuts, which can be either too baggy or too damn skinny. While we began this style pant using MILSPEC 5050 NYCO, we always wanted to return to the original ‘HBT’ material as originally used. We finally found a suitable mill to source this 100% cotton herringbone twill and were able to use that in this design. ‘HBT’ is a distinct and durable fabric that can actually trace its roots to the days of the Roman Empire. In more ‘modern’ times, cotton HBT is best known in classic American work-wear and the vintage US Military dungarees and fatigues. Our pant style even takes its namesake and is in honor of the Marine Raiders from WWII. Everything about this pant is taken from the ‘best of’ in classic work and military wear but with our signature design and functional details for today’s modern user. Whether mending fences on your property, an autumn hike, tinkering on your rig in the workshop, to a night out exploring food trucks, the Raider Field Pant 100HBT has got you covered this year and into the next.”


The Raider Field Pant 100HBT will be available for purchase on Thursday, October 17th, 2019 at 12:00pm PT via their website,

USAF Uniform Transition to OCP On Schedule

Monday, October 14th, 2019

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas (AFNS) — Trainees entering into Basic Military Training at the 37th Training Wing the first week of October were the first group to be issued the new Operational Camouflage Pattern uniforms.

When Air Force officials announced last year they were adopting the Army OCP as the official utility uniform, they developed a three-year rollout timeline across the force for the entire changeover. Last week put them on target for issue to new recruits entering BMT.

“Each trainee is issued four sets of uniforms with their initial issue,” Bernadette Cline, clothing issue supervisor said. “Trainees who are here in (Airmen Battle Uniforms) will continue to wear them throughout their time here and will be replaced when they get their clothing allowance.”

The 502nd Logistics Readiness Squadron Initial Issue Clothing outfits nearly 33,000 BMT trainees every year and maintains more than 330,000 clothing line items.

“We partner with Defense Logistics Agency who provides the clothing items upfront to be issued,” Donald Cooper, Air Force initial clothing issue chief said. “Then we warehouse and issue to the individuals’ size-specific clothing.”

After taking Airmen feedback into consideration, the uniform board members said they chose the OCP for the improved fit and comfort and so that they will blend in with their soldier counterparts’ uniforms in joint environments, according to Cooper.

“Right now, if someone deploys, they’ll get it issued,” Cline said. “And now that everyone is converting over to this uniform, (the trainees) already have the uniform to work and deploy in.”

Following the timeline, the OCP should now be available online for purchase as well.

The next mandatory change listed on the timeline, to take place by June 1, 2020, will be for Airmen’s boots, socks and T-shirts to be coyote brown. Also, officer ranks to the spice brown.

Switching from two different types of utility uniforms to just one, multifunctional uniform could also simplify life for the Airmen.

“I think the biggest value is going to be the thought that they aren’t required to have two uniforms anymore once they convert to a uniform that is for deployment and day-to-day work,’” Cooper said.
