Don't get too worked up over the names of things. Sometimes things pick up a name years afterwards that was never used originally, like those cargo pants I mentioned. When they were originally issued in the 1950s, they were officially called field pants and I never heard them called anything else. Reenactors buy M41 field jackets (sometimes called a Parson jacket). They were officially termed a "field jacket." The M43 outfit had a "field coat" (followed by later variations) that was forever afterwards called a field jacket.

Club Stubborn H1 vest and flying shorts 2.0. Both excellent for summer- the flying shorts especially are  a nice lightweight nylon and are getting a lot of wear as the weather warms up.

Where'd I put my lighter? Too many pockets is always a good thing...

We were issued four sets of khakis, which were referred to as khakis and nothing else.

Great background, thanks BlueTrain! Good catch on the chinos v. khakis, I didn't even catch that anachronism.

I'm digging those slippers

Thanks Mr. Q! They're normally just house slippers, but I occasionally forget I'm wearing them and leave he house for errands.
