W Magazine, a fashion publication, recently released images from a photoshoot about military trends for Fall 2016. Featuring scantily-clad models draped in navy blue dress coats, sporting camouflage tank tops, and adorned with jewel-toned dog tags, the magazine’s “Make Love, Not War” spread pays homage to military garments.
While the fashion industry has long had an infatuation with civilianizing military gear, we just had to ask: Who wears it better, soldiers or models?
W magazine believes “models are the best candidates to rock military trends.” But we think otherwise.
Who do you think wore it best? Tell us in the comments.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.

U.S. Coast Guard cutter Bertholf left California on January 20 for a months-long mission in the Pacific to support U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, the largest of the U.S. military's geographic combatant commands.
Coast Guardsmen aboard the Bertholf left Alameda on the 30th day of what is now the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. They left a few days after not getting their first paycheck since that shutdown started and without knowing when the next will come.
