Genius or Crazy?

Saturday, May 7th, 2022

This image of a modified Air Force Female Service Dress Blouse has been making the rounds on social media. The intent was obvious. Without garter straps connecting the hem of the shirt to the socks, the shirt will invariably come untucked. I find the modification ingenious, but many have called it crazy.

“Soldiers Love Tails!” Army Adds Tails to Mess Dress Uniform

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

On 1 April, the US Army announced it would be adding tails to the Mess Dress uniform, abandoning well over a century of tradition.

“My Squad loves tails,” exclaimed the Sergeant Major of the Army Michael A Grinston when discussing the move to add tails to the mess dress uniform, adding, “we’ve looked like bell hops for far too long.“

Army Chief of Staff General James C. McConville responded to media queries with, “it’s the only uniform we haven’t screwed up yet. It was time.”

According to sources close to the effort, there will be no wear out date for legacy tailless mess dress jackets but that those who don’t purchase new versions or at least opt for a button-in upgrade will be forced to empty the grog bowl at future dinning-ins.

During the announcement, SMA Grinston offered a look at other initiatives under consideration, “We’ve got a couple of other ideas we’re batting around as well. For instance, urinals…we’re getting rid of them. Everyone will have to sit down when they pee, but we’re going to get rid of skirts as well, so it kind of balances out. Aside from it’s just the right thing to do, the potential cost savings are enormous considering the size of the Army. Think about all of those broken urinals we won’t have to fix.”

10th SFG(A) 2020 TOP Images: Coming in at #6, SOF Fashion Sense

Saturday, December 26th, 2020

This is apparently an “aha!” moment for 10th Group, thy the posters on their social media are fans and not necessarily professional commenters.

The number of comments on the shirt this Green Beret was wearing were… Surprising. It’s good to see our audience has a fashion sense, but the more important thing to focus on is SOF Truth #1, “Humans are more important than hardware.”

Flex Tac – Flex Micro Chest Rig

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

Finally, the Gucci chest rig you’ve been clamoring for! Ok, truthfully it’s not Gucci; it’s Louis Vuitton, but same pedigree, right?

Anyway, the Flex Micro Chest Rig from Flex Tac is designed for when you just have to flex on ’em. Made of fabric with the premium fashion brand marking your girlfriend tries to browbeat you into buying for her, it’s still a fightin’ rig at heart: made with Duraflex and ITW compatible buckles, nylon webbing and threads, it’s designed to interface with most industry standard plate carriers. Basically, this baby’s just as at home in a conflict zone as any Parisian runway, but that’s just being redundant.

This particular package includes:

  • 1x Micro Chest Rig Chassis W/ “H” Harness and 1′ waist strap
  • 2x Left & Right Wingman Pouch
  • 1x Lower Abdomen Utility Pouch
  • 1x 3 Cell 556 Elastic Insert
  • 1x 2 Cell 9mm Insert
  • Also, we feel it’s important to address this: calling this rig Gucci was half-right, because you’re not just stuck with LV fabric… you can also pick either Gucci or Burberry if Louis Vuitton just ain’t your thing.

    Made to order with a 3-week lead time.
