The digital boonies call for a digital boonie hat. Ours is cotton with adjustable chin straps and a headband divided into a dozen sections so you can clip stuff onto it. New, from Mil-Spec™. We’ll pick one in a size from 7 to 7-3/4.
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.
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.)
Genuine U.S. military surplus athletic supporter, unused, never issued, brand new, still in the box, we swear on our mother's combat boots. This military supporter does date from approximately the Korean War era, but some things never change. Size medium, with a 3" wide waist-band.
With Austrian troops climbing ev'ry mountain and wearing these fatigue caps. In dark olive drab, with little vent holes and that Austrian army target-like red and white circle logo on the peak. Pre-worn in Austria for your convenience. In Euro size 54/55, which is US small, 6-3/4 to 6-7/8.
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.
These cold weather caps were made for the East German military, and are a gray wool blend with nylon faux-fur on the front and the standard pin-up ear flaps. New surplus from the late 1960s. Front has a 3/4” dia hammer & compass cloisonné medallion, the erstwhile symbol for E. Germany, that is just pinned on so you could wear it with anything! Size is Euro 57, which is 7-1/8, or a medium.
These French military field suspenders are olive drab canvas and are marked “PARIS 1978” inside the yoke. (And the yokes on you.) In an H-shape, they have 1-7/8” wide x 10-3/4” long straps on the front, narrowing to 3/4” wide adjustable straps for another 6-1/2” with clips on the end. The back has a pair of 7/8” wide x 27” long straps with hook-and-loop fabric on the back to close on itself. Front straps have a D-ring each for French grenades that we don’t carry.
You prefer shemagh? OK, make it scarf. This one’s in coyote brown woven in a traditional pattern from the standard soft, breathable cotton meant to keep you safe from sun and sand in desert climes. Measures 42" square. From Voodoo Tactical®.
