Tactical Friday

Tactical Pants, Hawaiian Shirt, and AddidasIn just a few hours it will be Friday here  on the US Pacific coast. Some office workers will wake up and choose to wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans to work.

This is an American tradition I suppose. It signifies an admiration for the weekend, which is when Americans pursue their right to happiness the most. It also personifies that very American habit of being laid back on purpose.

In a sense, it’s a legacy system that harkens back to those days when suits and ties were the norm.

Hawaiian shirts have their place but I don’t feel comfortable in them. I don’t think I’ve ever worn one to the office since I took my first job.

Instead, I opt for Tactical Pants on Friday. They are after all the pinnacle of utility, comfort, and shooting sports fashion. You can move in them, and conceal equally well a pocket camera, or a pocket pistol, or both. They’re durable enough for use in the field, but more importantly they are comfortable enough for the weekend, or once you have the pockets emptied–a nap.

They are not fashionable in the least, or at least no less fashionable than a Hawaiian shirt.
