i'm conscripting

JACKET - ARMY SURPLUS/JEANS - TOPSHOP/TSHIRT - TOPSHOP/CREEPERS - OFFICE/WATCH - CASIO (VIA AMAZON)
Army jackets are, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most popular and possibly over worn pieces that are new to the scene this season. Having said that, I have lovingly worn mine since the start of the summer when I wore it to R1's Hackney Weekend (see here), and will continue to do so as we really get into winter. My jacket formerly belonged to my brother, and as he was an army cadet he got it from an Army Surplus store - I'm sure a quick google will let you know where your nearest one of these is! I love the authenticity of the camo version, however am equally enamoured by the high street's offerings; in particular the infamous khaki-and-pleather sleeved variety found in Topshop, River Island, or on Ebay (you all know the ones I mean). 

As for the jumping shots, well, who knows why I did that? It was amusing at the time.

How are you wearing your army jacket this season?

You look so good in the khaki green/camo! I know what you mean about it being everywhere though. Wish I'd of bought something a couple of months ago, but now I think I'm too late to join the trend!
