Urge to wear cammo.

Post by Korky » Fri Feb 08, 2019 12:01 pm

Since buying my MT I have been having the urge to wear cammo. Admittedly cammo looks the part on the MT but having a government surplus bike has got me into government surplus stuff.
As a cheapskate suits me fine, I love the cammo shirts, I can usually get one for £3. Strong and well made the cammo hides the dirt, good for a builder. I also managed to get some Gore Tex cammo trousers for £8 because the zip in the bottom of one leg was broke. Great for keeping water and dirt off my legs because the MT front mudguard doesn't!
Er Indoors doesn't mind as long as she's not with me.
I'm converted no designer clothes for me, just surplus specials.

It's always a bad move to have your wife double up as your therapist

It doesn't matter what your job, no-one wants to wear work clothes when they don't need to. I've come across a few who think by wearing Olive Drab later DPM kit that it somehow makes them tough They're the same ones who whinge and whine when they've been pushed a bit, no food , no sleep, hurry up and wait orders, changes of plan, rain , snow, cold etc etc

I would enlisted tomorrow if they would take a 55 year old and I could go straight in as a General!
I don't think the clothes make me tough, the clothes are tough and good for building in, plus they're cheap as chips.
