The Captain

Menswear has always been dictated by The Kaiser of all items; the military jacket. From the colourful pages of history lessons and tapestry, to the trenches and no-mans-land of summer festivals, and even in the heart of the business districts, the military jacket is essentially...historic. And I've recently joined the ranks with a decadent one from http://www.loveclothing.com/ . It has all the indie charm of The Libertines and The Strokes, with a subtle throwback to The Beatles. Lined with a stinging red it's hard to resist, and the gold buttons electrify the design. It bullets all the way up to the neck, looking industrial and tough. But left undone with a distressed graphic t-shirt underneath, the jacket takes on the role of the 'camden man' who lives and dresses through his rock'n'roll calling and spirit. For those wanting to inject a bit of Vivienne Westwood flare into their festival and social soundtrack this Summer, a jacket like this is a high voltage essential. Head to http://www.loveclothing.com/ to see their military range in designs to suit every army mind and rank, or click the banner on the right.
