    tactical foods are supposed to make you constipated for the duration of the mission so you don't have to take potty break. lol

    Yup! That's why you never chew the gum that comes with your MRE until the mission is over and you have the "luxury" of dropping trough.

    The pizza cutter and BBQ fork go with the previously posted BBQ apron. I'm shocked y'all missed the Tactical Laser-Guided Tie.

    Around here I think the tactical trend is slowly dying... replaced by "retro" and "heirloom" now... Filson gear, leather, Converse black and white hi-tops, flannel shirts, dark (sometimes raw) denim, etc. Hasn't yet picked up the steam that tactical has/had but I see it coming.

    That kind of classic look has never really gone out of style - it's either co-opted by hipsters, or is really freaking expensive to pull off well.

    Unfortunately, it has been co-opted by hipsters on a fairly large scale making classic, quality gear difficult to find.

    The thing is, classic, non-tactical looks outnumber the contemporary tacticool ones, so there's plenty of stuff out there the hipsters are not buying up to resell to their peers at ridiculous markups. i go for hawaiian shirts, comfy slacks, comfy shoes. i like my bags cheap and plain, and i like my knives too shiny to be tacticool

    See, I'm sort of the same way, but I consider it to be tactical of a different sort. I think it's both fun and practical to practice urban camo. I'd rather be Jack Bauer than a SWAT team member, in other words. Who stands out more in a crowd: the guy in jeans, a fleece jacket, and a messenger bag, or the guy wearing 5.11 pants and a camo molle backpack? Which one would you expect to be carrying a handgun? Who, when he pulls out his pocketknife to cut the tags off his clothing purchase in a mall, draws more attention: the first guy with his shiny 3" blade or the second guy with his black, 4-inch, serrated tanto folder? If you ask me, the first guy is the more tactical, and the second guy (unless he actually is an LEO) the more impractical.
