Calico Space Force. Is your brain scrambling to make sense of that? Are you wondering what it could possibly be?
How did I come to be wearing a tactical vest that looks like it’s made of calico kevlar?
You know how these things go.
Something catches your eye on Yoox, you put it in your Dreambox, it’s so strange that it sits there — unmolested — for 18 months until it’s gone through so many price reductions that it’s practically free and you say to your computer monitor, Would you like to come home with me?
The fabric looks like a calico-esque print, except that it’s only two colors (or, non-colors) and printed on a windbreaker fabric.
Come closer and take a look.
Had I realized that the squares just below my collarbone were metal and non-functioning, perhaps I would have pulled back from my rash invitation.
Overall, however, I like this. I particularly like the way the hem of the vest works with the hem of this shirt. A very nice parallel.
The Photographer, as always, sees a sci-fi costume.
He thinks this is more Star Wars than Star Trek.
I think it’s more Calico S.W.A.T.
You can see my striped shirt in another context in this post.
Have a fantastic weekend!
