South Korea’s Revitalizing Reforms Uniform

Monday, June 25th, 2018

This is a rare “camouflage” pattern indeed. Used exclusively by South Korea’s Capital Garrison Command (former name of the Capital Defense Command), it seems to have no practical purpose than to serve as a uniform.


Called the Yu-Shin bok (Revitalizing Reforms Uniform), it was worn up until 1981. The pattern appears to incorporate turtle shells which is significant considering the Geobukseon or Turtle Ships are recognized to be the first armored ships and were used by the Koreans to thwart Japanese attempts to conquer Korea in the late 16th century.

All Skill No Luck has taken Flannel to a whole new level; Field and Combat Style Shirts.

Called the NTCHWAIDUMELA and NTCHWAIDUMELA STV (Shed The Vest), they are made from cotton flannel, so no FR properties. But, think of the comfort.

OCP – Now In Technicolor

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Looks like the OCP color issues are worse than we thought.

This isn’t just a hat like we showed last time, this is the entire uniform for a Four-Star General, forward deployed, in a combat zone. These are unaltered DoD photographs and the shading problem is obvious next to the other uniforms.

The Army has got to get this printing locked in. Of course, they wouldn’t have this problem if they’d have just kept using MultiCam.

OAF Nation Introduces The Worlds Ugliest Christmas Sweater

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

OAF Nation claims that this is the world’s ugliest Christmas sweater but I disagree. I’ve seen Christmas sweaters which are much uglier. In fact, they’ve got a few alternatives which are definitely in the running fir the title.

This sweater is called ‘Tools of the Trade’ and is nothing short of awesome! Consider the design. It’s got guns and grenades. Since it’s a Christmas sweater, you can get away with sporting this in a lot of locations where a gun T-shirt wont fly.

Oops…5.11 Tactical Europe Misidentifies Arc’teryx Pants As Own

Monday, October 17th, 2016

5.11 Europe mad e a bit of a mistake earlier this weekend when they made a great post with a quote from a user about their Stryke Pant on Facebook. Unfortunately, most of the accompanying photos 5.11 shared, feature Rescue Global members wearing Arc’teryx LEAF pants.

It’s been noticed, particularly by Arc’teryx fans, and is a good reminder in general to brands to be careful about outsourcing social media management, although it may not be the case in this instance. Furthermore, the tactical consumer is a very savvy customer and even the smallest details do not go unnoticed. Even 15 years later, there are still remarks about H&K’s infamous backward rounds photo.
