When you were a kid you wanted to be a soldier, but then you realized that being a soldier is, like, really really hard. No, seriously, they have to do push-ups and run and carry heavy things. ... Yeah, you should probably wear the Quiksilver Bellamy Jacket instead. It uses military-inspired style so you look like a soldier, but don't have to do any of the hard stuff.
