O P Tactical figured since we were getting a real warrior as Secretary of Defense, they ought to celebrate the event by offering a War Department T-shirt, complete with the original logo. For those of you unfamiliar, the current Department of Defense (Initially named the National Military Establishment) was created 70 years ago in 1947, during the post-WW II reorganization of the National Defense Act. Before that, there was a War Department and a Navy Department.

Columbia and Disney have partnered up to produce a line of officially licensed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story apparel. The three pieces, Women’s Jyn Erso Rebel Jacket, Men’s Captain Cassian Andor Rebel Parka, and Men’s Imperial Death Trooper Jacket, will be officially available starting 12/9/16 at select Columbia store locations, as well as for online purchase.
In my opinion, the Jyn Erso jacket is actually the coolest looking piece of the three. It actually looks like authentic Star Wars garb. The Death Trooper jacket is pretty overt in its design, but looks like a decent outer layer, even though you might have to be a pretty big Star Wars fan to wear it on the regular. As for the parka? Well, it really reminds me of the Hoth parka from Empire, which makes it pretty neat.
If you’re looking to make your Christmas just a bit more ‘Tactical’, and the traditional Tactical Christmas Stocking isn’t enough, then you might want to look into OAF Nation’s ‘Tools of the Trade’ Christmas Sweater.

A reader sent in a pic of a Roark Revival ‘Fear The Sea’ mesh snapback hat they found at Sun Diego Board Shop in Mission Beach, San Diego. The hat itself is a “premium trucker hat”, with front panel “Fear the Sea” patch, adjustable snapback, and foam front and mesh back. What’s of real interest is the camo pattern, and how it differs from the one presented on the company’s website. This in-store variant sports an interesting blended woodland-esque pattern, however the example shown on the website is clearly different:
The example on the site (in the ‘Cam-Cam’ variant) shows a pattern that has more than a passing resemblance to Brookwood Transitional pattern. If I saw a hat more like the one on the site, I’d pick it up in a heartbeat. I don’t wear trucker caps very well, but Brookwood’s camo patterns are pretty cool.
Thanks to A.J. for the tip!

Their first product was the Cavalier t-shirt, and they’ll soon be expanding their product line with the Cavalier Dress Shirt.

SilencerCo’s new Spring clothing line was designed to promote the new millennial shift and consumer in the firearms industry. Through this new line, SilencerCo is pairing Marvel characters and other iconic images with their #FightTheNoise campaign, as well as placing special focus on their upcoming Maxim 9 integrally-suppressed 9mm pistol.
Below is a quote from SilencerCo CEO Josh Waldron regarding the direction they’re taking with their new lifestyle line:
“SilencerCo is able to reach the younger millennial audience because that’s actually a large portion of the people who make up our company. We can understand and market to that group because we are that group. My advice to companies looking to reach a younger demographic would be to consider hiring professionals from that particular demographic to run your marketing division; that way, you produce content that speaks to your desired market and really hits the mark.”
