The military appearance in popular culture
The military appearance in popular has become commonplace. On this episode of Cigars and Sea Stories, Mike and Bennett are talking about the popular culture in modern society adopting a more military look. The haircuts are faded and the beards are long. Some are rocking the lumbersexual look in a huge way. It’s not just the style, it’s also the uniforms themselves. For decades the tri-color cammies of yesteryear have been donned by everyone from “Rambo” to the landscaper outback. Now Marine Corps MARPAT is coming into fashion. Civilians are picking up military surplus uniforms and wearing ’em to the club. Fitty with his dress blues and hipsters rocking service A coats with newsboy caps. It’s a GD trip! What’s both ironic and hilarious is the only civis rocking the misappropriated service and dress uniforms seem to be the only ones unwilling to actually serve?. Hmmmmmm.
That’s not to say the guys are ragging on these stylish types, much rather the opposite. If you wanna look like the cool kid club, by all means. Just don’t go dressing up for discounts. You may wind up tripping off a curb. Stolen valor aside, the military look is a stylish blend of woodsman gunfighter meets urban tactical. Just don’t go mistaking a vet for a hipster. Some of these beards ain’t just for show — RAH!
