lol you don’t own an MA1 jacket yet?
>>17894457because i'm not a naziyet
>>17894457Nigger this is /fa/ everyone here owned a bomber 5 years ago
>>17894457I've had a few over the years. Over all I don't really like them. The cwu-45 pattern just looks better.
>>17894457I got one in 2010. Then the normies hopped on that trend. In a few years I can start wearing it again.
picked up an m65 long at a thrift store for 5 bucks recently. didnt even know what it was just thought its a cool looking jacket and im a bit bored with bombers. what do you fellas think (not my photo)
>>17894457So zoomers like bomber jackets afain?
>>17895823fuck should i think about a random photo from the internet
>>17895823i hate being european why cant i have this without shelling out so much fucking money
>>17895844>i hate being pourftfy
>>17895844i am european, balkans. im thinking its surplus given from nato from the war in the 90sthere was nothing to indicate its a copy so i think its original. some guy in the store came looking for it later and losing his mind saying it was just there a second ago and started yelling at his wife>>17895842if it looks good to you and you like my jacket. its not a random photo, i picked it myself. would you like my own photo of the same jacket?
Tried on a few over the years. They are supposed to be quality pieces and people have fallen for the Alpha Industries memes. Mine is a Buzz Rickson and wasn't cheap, but it looks much more flattering and authentic.
>>17894457Yeah no I’m not from the year 2016“I’m in my mid 30s, I used to be a big Kanye fan and I really loved the movie drive, I had a kid and I stopped caring about clothes or fashion, yo dawg are those ultraboosts?? Those are the shit remember 2016? I miss being young :(“
>>17895844you just dont know where to look
>>17895823for me, it's the M81 Woodland M65High levels of comfort, high levels of based
>>17894477It does not have that association anymore, its def the 'im a cool guy" jacket of the last decade.
>>17894457does the alpha heritage actually have the classic silhouette or is it shallow marketing
>>17894984Travis doesn't wear an MA1 but a "Jacket, Combat, Winter"
>>17897397Was literally just about to ask that.
>>17897397>>17896852Why not just get a surplus one?I got an alpha industries 1970 made one (with wool insulation) for less than the cost of any repro.
>>17897615Anything made by Alpha Industries is garbage. When they were the supplier for the US military it was during a time of extreme cost cutting.
>>17895844Why not opt for something European? With the climate variations across the EU I'm sure you can find something that you like
>>17895844IDK if people still post some of the old milspo guides
where to cop one of these headbands?
>>17899259kek, it’s the wrong time to be wearing one of those.
>>17898017Recommend a brand then.
>>17899265for you maybe
>>17898732I call this facial hairstlyle "The Paperboy"
No but I’m looking into getting a light grey Members Only jacket since I gave my other one to my brother because it fits him way better than it fits me. Also, I’m hijacking your gay thread for my question: How do I make a light grey Members Only jacket more punk without damaging it in ways that would make it less functional as a jacket?
>>17894477>current year >not a nazi jew hate is in yo
My longest owned garment and favourite piece. Picked it up in winter 2006 from an army surplus shop with my first payment from my first job (sandwich artist)Got slagged off at the time for wearing it (most by my country's equivalent of gopniks) only for shittier but x3 more expensive versions to become must-haves.
>>17899773>$799.99kek, retard.I’ll stick with Alpha
>>17904265It's priced for people who care about quality as opposed to people like yourself who want a cheap disposal look that you'll be over in two months
>>17904330>both brands get their nylon distributed from the same manufacturer>”but muh quality”>spending more money on a hipster brand to make yourself feel more important than othersI bet you don’t drink coffee unless it comes from Starbucks too. God, I hate people like you.
>>17894477Be a smarty join the nazi party
>>17898732This guy definitely has like a huge resin ball and thats all he smokes, like whisping it off a bobby pin, his fingers, nails, and pockets all have the unmistakable tinge of smelly tarry resin
>>17904489Buzz M65 contains no nyon as it's based on the second pattern design which uses a much heavier 100% cotton shell.Their fabrics are also all sourced and hand made in japan on cold war era vintage looms that Toyo enterprises has operated and maintained for nearly 80 years.
>>17894457Never owned one. I'm the one who discovered them though.
I'm not bothered about it. So yah, in shorthand time we get automatical cloth production by machine hand. Lest of half year for you.
>>17905911snake oil>M-MUH M65!just buy a milsurp one, you'll pay 1/4 for a mint condition one as opposed to a BR repro
>>17906162Post your shitty fit so we can laugh.
>>17898017>Anything made by Alpha Industries is garbage. When they were the supplier for the US military it was during a time of extreme cost cutting.Every one of my m65 models and ma1 are made by them and they've held up well
>>17894457no but I have one of these flecktarn bdu parka liners. I originally got it to complete my bdu set but it's really good for the nam send home look
