What is army surplus supply?
Army surplus supply are goods that are sold or otherwise disposed of when no longer needed by the military. Entrepreneurs often buy these goods and resell them at surplus stores. Usually the goods sold by the military are clothing, equipment, and tools of a nature that is generally useful to the civilian population, as well as embroidered patches, name tags, and other items that can be used for a faux military uniform.
Military Wear In Fashion
Fashion and the military have a long and complicated history — reaching back long before Hugo Boss was sketching uniforms for the Nazis.
However, the case for civilians wearing military dress for fashion or other non-military purposes has a number of creditable arguments of its own. One goes that wearing military outfits can be a powerful but peaceful form of protest; a phenomenon that took off in the Vietnam war era when young people in the antiwar movement wore fatigues, camouflage, army jackets and cargo pants at public demonstrations.
Another school of thought views fashion as an important art form – as valid as music and visual art – and that means that, just like those other mediums, appropriation and borrowing from different cultures, creeds and regalia isn’t just an inevitable part of design evolution; it can be important as well as beautiful.
