Stussy night camouflage jacket. I love this camo it was designed to fool nightvision goggles in the first gulf war. the iraqi NVGs had a grid pattern iirc.

Nothing takes the wind out of military clothing like seeing aging colonels wear their fatigues on the metro.

edit I made a bit ago - I think technicals are wild, kind of the 'tacticool' thing with military clothes and basketball shoes as discussed in episode 7 of the care-tags show - meld of military technology (big ass gun, camo, fatigues) with 'civilian' technology (pickup truck), especially with their use by militias who might be wearing t shirts or something. lots of intersections, reciprocities
Spoiler:
The shaping of modern technology by the military is central
to David Noble's account of the development of machine tools
after the Second World War(12). While the diffusion of
interchangeable parts manufacture was an unintended
consequence of its use in small arms production, David Noble
has argued that the American military have played a very
important role in developing numerically-controlled machine
tools to de-skill workers, and make them part of a strictly
delineated hierarchical system of production for both civil
and military products. The dynamics of modern capitalism and
modern militarism are no longer seen as the opposing ideal
types of the nineteenth century progressivist vision. It is
not a question of swords becoming ploughshares; rather,
ploughshares become increasingly swordlike. Military
technology, and its technology of production, embodies
military ideas about human organisation, displacing
alternative civil notions of what technology could be like.
