Militant State of Mind: MAGIC STICK SS17 “DEATH FROM ABOVE”

The label uniquely sourced premium woven tiger camo fabric from garments/accessories of the Vietnam war era for their oversized styles. The utilization of the dazzle camouflage pattern, which was first seen on World War I battleships, is brilliantly displayed within knit patterns and graphic prints throughout the offering.

The brand presents a strong range of timeless, earthy-toned streetwear essentials that includes a coach jacket, luxe knitwear, hockey crewneck, track jacket, themed-graphic chester coat, baseball jersey, oversized poncho, embroidered MA-1 bomber, and pile anorak.
