MILITARY CLOTHING

Bolshevik Buttons

Add the glitter of bright, brass-tone aluminum buttons, 9/16" dia, to tops, jeans, purses, backpacks. The buttons are new and convex, with a stationary 1/8" sewing loop on the back, and an embossed star and small hammer and sickle design on the front. All right, so they were from the Soviet military (circa late 1970s). The design is very discreet. And we weren't the ones who had to tear down a wall, so you can consider these the spoils of a cold war. (Lots and lots of spoils. Left-leaning artists who want to cover a giant canvas or Soviet statue with them should call for a volume discount.)

Hey Sailor, Nice Hat!

From the U.S. Navy stock of unused Gob hats (no, we don’t know where that name comes from) or more familiarly “dixie cups,” in white cotton twill. We’ll pick from sizes 7 through 8-1/2 if you’re going for the Cracker Jack look, but if you turn the sides down like Gilligan, one size fits every noggin. Upright, it should be squared up for authenticity. Group discount available for drama teachers staging South Pacific.

Headed Overseas?

That’s where these military overseas caps started out, on Deutsch köpfe. Slightly shorter than the U.S. garrison cap, and with a jaunty curve, front to back, they’re in dark blue-gray with orange piping and a German army insignia on the front. We’ll pick a pair in (2) different sizes 58-63, which is approx 7-1/4 to 7-7/8 on American heads, but the envelope design gives them some size leeway.

Beetle Bailio Lid

Flip up the 2-1/2” brim on this soft, camo battle cap from the Italian military, and you’ll achieve something like a Beetle Bailey insouciance, with an Italian flavor. Call it sprezzatura. (Just go look it up, Sparky.) Sized M, but ours was a touch tight on a 7-3/8 capo, so think S/M. Has an elastic band in back, and little vents on the sides for you hotheads.

Suisse Nuclear Poncho

In a material like extra-thick trash-bag plastic, this is a late 1960s Swiss military Nuclear/Biological/Chemical protective poncho. Measures approx 50” long x 38” wide with snap closures in the front. We’re thinking it’d be handy for sudden rain storms but we’re a tad skeptical about its effectiveness in the case of nuclear rain. Best check with Switzerland before going out in the fallout.

NBC Mittens

Like the ones Johnny Carson wore? No, like the ones the Swiss military uses to handle Nuclear, Biological or Chemical stuff. NBC. These are new, still in the package, olive drab-ish, in a mysterious plastic-like material, 18-3/8” long x 7-1/2” wide, and are constructed like mittens with index fingers, the better to free up your trigger-finger, we assume. Our each is (3) pairs, complete with rubber loops to secure them to your forearms. When worn, they give you an (uncooked) lobster-like appearance, so costumers take a hint.

CHINESE MILITARY WINTER HAT
NEW

People’s Republic Of Hats

From the Chinese army. Gets noggin-numbing chilly in the northeast, and these very dark green winter hats have fur-lined ear- and neck-flaps, plus thick padding all around, and tie under the chin. Most are medium sizes, but have a certain amount of give. Our sample was cozy and snug on a copywriter’s 7-3/8 cranium.

Isn’t It A Pithy

Yeth, it’s just pithiful. These authentic-looking pith helmets have a woodland camo pattern that goes with everything.Inside, it measures appx. 8" x 7" x 4-1/4" deep, and the brim measures a 14” x 11-3/4” oval. The name comes from the fact that these helmets were originally made from the pith, or spongy insides, of the stem of the shola plant. Use that trivia at your next dinner party--while you’re wearing one of these helmets. Made in Vietnam.
