With the change of season’s comes the change in wear - this should answer recent questions about how to wear a military inspired jacket without going camo (which I have no issue as long as it is not “ironic”).

Most important is “FIT & BALANCE” - some have had great luck at army surplus stores, not me but that doesn’t mean one has to spend a lot. For example this M65 inspired jacket is from MUJI from about 3 years ago & we all know MUJI is not expensive.

FYI - the below was Winter 2012

The (Partial) Week that was..

Well that was QUICK & one of those days where the elements wreaked havoc on the flights & hence removed any chance of enjoying Melbourne outside a board room.. There’s always a next time.
