    I always love to dress masculinely. One of my new obsession is to dress like military. There seem to be in style nowaday. You can buy caps, pants, short , dog tags, tank tops and all kind of other outfitted. They are durable, comfortable and sexy as hell. Most of the material sales here is make in Thailand and really affortable. You can also find an exact copies of those military uniform wear use by American servicesmen in Iraq, a used military jacket use by Taiwan and Thai army and so many others. This sudden interest is strange since I leave the service almost 13 years ago.

    Anybody else enjoy this type of clothing. Let discuss fashion guys.............

    Around my neck of the woods---as they say here---if you are wearing anything military style, it is cammo. Even the redneck girls wear cammo. And you'd have a wad of tobacco in your cheek, too. So....no. No cammo for me.
    I do like seeing some guys in cammo, though. Just not with a pot-belly and spittle on their mouth. That, and carrying a empty Coke bottle or paper cup to spit into. YUK! Disgusting.

    I've been going about town dressed in military fashion for some time now. I'm not too hip on current military fashion, though. I prefer something a little more, um, traditional.

    Like it or not, you can buy here at some street vendors. They are fake though but look just like the real things. Unfortunately , American copyright law didnt apply in South East Asia.

    tacky. makes me think of high school computer nerds who make their own backpacks out of duck-tape: they have a penchant for military boots and fatigues and caps and jackets sometimes- i think it makes them feel powerful or intimidating. or it makes me think of redneck hunters- neither is a good connotation. i'd say, unless you're in the military, don't wear military clothing. its costume-y; you're pretending to be something you're not, and hoping to artificially borrow any sexiness the military can impart, without the actual discipline, fitness, bravery, or experience. its sort of also like driving an unreasonably large vehicle- compensation in your 'masculinity' for something you worry you're lacking? just don't. its false advertising, and its tacky as hell.

    i admit to having a thing for military guys myself, but would never go on a second date with a guy decked out in military attire if i learned he wasn't even in the military. yuk.



    and i donno who told you it was 'fashionable,' but you need to go and buy yourself a copy of Details and GQ today, cause i can promise you that camo military pants are nowhere in them.
    its true that the military has inspired fashion trends for hundreds of years (just look at the peacoat), but there's a difference.

    Not sure it's completely in style. Michael Jackson has been dressing like that for decades (and looks ridiculous ;))

    icon_eek.gifHell...I wore cammies for 20 years. It does rub me wrong a little to see the uniform on someone who hasn't served...although HOT, I don't find it in good taste. Leave it to strippers.

    for the sake of self-knowledge and insight,
    you may also want to re-consider your phrase, 'dressing masculinely'- by all means, dress how you feel most comfortable and confident, but don't imagine that Harley Davidson tshirts and military boots or flannel and budweiser baseball caps are any more 'masculine' than a suit or a nice polo with good jeans, or anything a man may find himself wearing.

    the masculinity lies with the man, not his clothing- a confidently masculine man can wear almost anything and make it look hot.
    however, an insecure man doing his best to hide it with obnoxiously butch clothes and a big truck is an instant turn off (to many- though i'm not saying to all)

    Its probably not in GQ , but I see all kind of guys wearing it, especially western tourist and backpacker when I am in Thailand/Vietnam. Of course , I am not wearing military style from head to toe (that is plain crazy) , but probably a caps, a pant and those jacket.

    Frankly, I am not trying to look macho or anything. I just find it look good and comfortable. Just like I use to enjoy dressing in western cloth. I do it for my enjoyment not to impress othe people. For those Harley Davidson t-shirt (this is another topic), I wear it , collect it, and enjoy because I am a bikers enthusiatic, not because I am trying to show how tough I am.

    well then you have my stamp of approval icon_smile.gif (being facetious there) -like i said, do whatever makes you happiest- that's the ultimate advice. i just can't in good conscience tell you that its 'in style,' especially if its what a bunch of sweaty texans backpacking through asia are wearing :p

    I don't know when camouflage became fashionable. It's kinda tacky and a little ironic. Sorta like yuppies and soccer moms driving Hummers.

    Camouflage was big with the gays. I remember a while back, every other gay guy at the gym was rockin the cammie cargo shorts during the summer. The good thing about it was that it helped fine tune my gaydar. icon_lol.gif

    I grew up in a country where the military lifestyle is prevalent, even somewhat enforced. Half of my relatives from my father's side was in the military, and i went to school where military classes were mandatory.
    So because of these influences i've developed an attraction towards the men and their style of dress.
    I love the shirts with epaulets and the navy jumpers and peacoats. And of course the Tom of Finland clothes. And then when Tom Ford came out with the military influence as inspiration, i was floored!

    I never and never will wear camo stuff. I don't find it fashionable at all, I grew up in a military family..so yeah lol

    I did see someone at a restaurant wear camo stuff, it was obviously old since it was the old camo..not the newer digis. Honostly I wanted to yell at the guy, since I mean he dressed like he was in the military but he clearly was not, I thought it was disrespectful..and stupid.

    They may be "camo", but I doubt they help w/ the blending in or hiding.
    I mean, I'd notice a guy wearing 'em in the woods.

    After you've spent your entire life around that sort of thing the cammo/bdu's sorta lose their appeal. Damn if I'm not a sucker for guys in their blues though and I love the way the Marines dress. Hot.

    Military attire is a turn-off in my eyes. I never thought is was attractive... even when I was in middle/high school.

    When you're raised in the military, you see it more as a function of the service rather than an "appeal to be serviced".
