I fell for the meme and ordered a German flecktarn parka. I know there was a big thread on this a while back, but i have some questions about dyeing. What kind, and how much dye should i use to get it to look like pic related?
>>12018575>What kind, and how much dye should i use to get it to look like pic related?look in the archive fag.
>>120185752 dylon packs of machine wash. although i would maybe go with 1 and a half packs because mine turned out a little darker than OP by using 2 packs
>>12018582Ctrl+f doesnt work on mobile and im too lazy to scroll.>>12018583Thanks m8
>>12018582Could I pull this off using rit dye?
i'll see you mine if you're stateside. running out of room in my closet and i don't wear it enough. it's dyed
>>12018583Different anon here, I'm also waiting for a meme parka in the mail, were the packs you used the 350g ones?
Fell for the même too and only used one pack of dye, might have to do a second run or maybe keep it that way I dunno
>>12018583heard that shit jus turns it blue
>>12019014Thanks! >>12019046Still unsure how I should dye mine, or if I even will.
>>12019055ask yourselfis the trend worth it?
>>12019071We shall see
>>12018583can confirm this, used about 1 3/4 packs and it turned out just like the pic
>>12018871>>12019173 hereI used the 350g ones
can you give a link where you bought the parka
>>12018575depends on the % of cotton and how black do you want it. I dyed my 65% cotton one as in OP pic with 2 packs of simplicol back to black.
Would be willing to sell dyed parka if anyone wants to buy. Can't remember exact bw size but I am 5'8 and it fits me a little baggy, basically how OP's pic is If anyone is interested shoot me some offers, I can take some pictures later as it's at my other place
>>12019350What is your chest size
>>12019350german army clothes aren't about higth, but also how wide the chest is. The should be a number between 6 and 15 (?) inside.
>>12018575where to buy parka
>>12019027I used one dye pack too. I kinda like it this way desu
>>12018829not same guy, but bumping for interest. I used rit dye on a camo balaclava and it turned out similarily, but that was a fleece type material and much less of it. Just ordered a memetarn last night. >anyone have experience with rit dye for this project?
>>12019917I think someone in one of the recent archived threads used it and advised against it. Dylon looks like the simplest way to do it.
>>12018829>Dyeing the flagIf you fags are going to steal my epic /k/ meme jacket at least have some god damn respect.
>>12019558>>12019514i believe i'm 95cm but as I say, it fits pretty big and the sleeves are wide so it's no where near sitting close
>>12020026It's supposed to be that way. The german army hands out another padded jacket with the parka, that goes under the parka. The parka itself isn't that warm and isn't padded, so this jacket has to fit under it. Maybe even a bulletproof vest in addition to that. So your parka is probably exactly your size.
>>12020014You are like 6 types of fucking idiot
>>12019702Not sure if can pull it off of with that color, might post some shitty fit tomorrow for some advice
>>12018575shoes id fag
Anyone have any more inspo? This is all I haveAlso will Rit get this color?
Anyone dye any other camo jackets? I was thinking of buying a woodland M65 and dying that black.
>>12020192check the the archive, iirc some had trouble with rit. dylon is better.
I wanna dye some milsurp lavender, if I tried a fleck bdu with Dylon would it actually come out lavender or be a muddy ugly color
How'd I do?
>>12020812we had two good threads last month (thanks for everybody keeping them alive / topicalwarosu
>>12018829>>12019917>>12019976can confirm; rit is a pain in the ass, go with dylon
>>12020865Nice place my dude. Also nice jacket.
>>12020865where sweater get
>>12020865more interested in your houselooks /comfy/, post pics
>>12020869the archive only goes back 7 days. Is there a separate one like /mu/ has? excuse me, im an idiot
>>12020777Not sure but id love to see it if you try it out
does anyone have a sizing chart for these
i did this shit a couple years ago pls don't make it a meme
are yall just getting these are military surplus stores or what? like whats the best quality buy
I fell for the meme too but my coat is oversized. Ia it still acceptable if it almost touches your knees?
>>12018575I bought a parka for the first time? Any tips one wearing it? It's not a fish tail though.
>>12018602>Ctrl+f doesnt workYou don't need a keyboard Y.o.u f.u.c.k.i.n.g n.e.w.f.a.g
>>12018575what's the point of wanting to dye this completely?IMO the meme was getting some subtle camo pattern after dying.
>>12021015kommandostore Think it's owned by a guy on k
>>12021638Here's a picture of what it looks like
>>12018602Find in page, fuccboi
>>12018911Gr 8 which I think, which is like a medium in chest and length. I'll put it on grailed if anyone is interested, I'm moving into a smaller place soon and I won't be able to store a dozen jackets like I am now.
>>12022522interested, hit us up with that link once you do anon
>>12018575Holy shit, you're a fag
>no parkas below gr6 RESTOCK YOUR SHIT, IVAN
>>12021015>>12021743Can confirm. Bought from Ivan a few times. ALWAYS get IVAN'S nuts when you checkout.
>>12018575Mine turned out pitchblack with only one package of dylon. Luckily I have a shop in walking distance that sells them dirt cheap.I want to patch mine up, tho, and shipping to germany is insanely expensive - anybody know any good german shops for patches?
>>12020014>respecting a flagHeh. I replaced mine, actually. And I am german, myself.
Is this a fashion thing? I'm a kissless virgin robot and have been rocking one of these for years, guess I'm ahead of the curve :^)
>>12025129>And I am german, myself.Ahmed please go.
Someone rec me some reasonably priced boots to go with this jacket
>>12025150I´m literally as aryan as it gets. At least in Hitlers definition of an aryan.
>>12020190iirc they're austrian paratrooper boots
>>12025151USGI Jungleboot. $30 you can't go wrong mfer. get lace in zips g e t g o o detgood
Forgive my ignorance but what are the sizes like for these things. I'm about 5'10", 140lbs so pretty thin.
>>12025508> 5'10", 140lbs>thinlolI'm 5'11 and 130lb and GR12 fits me perfectly, although I have very broad shoulders and a very narrow waist
>>12025512I'm 184cm/85 kilos, broad shoulders (i'm /fit/). Would a gr.12 do the trick mate?
>>12025501if you buy them for 30 theyl fall apart within a month
>>12025129what did you replace it with? if put another flag on where did you find flags in the right size?
Sorry kommandostore but i was looking to buy from amazon, this seller/jacket look fine?https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00LUVS046/ref=pd_aw_fbt_468_img_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=VKW810D3ENGQX5WQDZN2
>>12020014how do you not dye the flag? how did you keep it intact?
>>12025146They were big on /fa/ about 4 years ago
>>12027242not him but I would imagine putting some duct tape/other waterproof tape over the flag would keep if from getting dyed.
>>120266582 expensive i got it for like 20 bucks>>12027242You unsew it, then sew it back on.Same here op fell for the meme. it came out pretty good but i'm too small can can't pull it off. i'll post pics later
Plenty of them for a decent price here https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/bw-parka-flecktarn-surplus/1155?qref=bw-parka
Tried to dye mine twice using some cheap brand and only got a dark brownish taint but with is fine but I'd prefer going full blackIf I use pic related will I archive it or am I stuck with a dark camo?
>>12027566Also there are other blacks and quantities which one would be the best?
>>12024158Stop posting without your name on Ivan.
>>12024158Hey Ivan are your nuts any good? I might actually get some even if Chernobyl left them with a funny aftertaste.
>>12025152Post a fit, Ahmed.
>>12026315That patch over the whole shoulder and the flag of Rohan replacing the flag on the other site. it´s too big, sadly, but looks fine nontheless.
>>12027814I don´t post fits, I just get some inspo on here.Also not Ahmed. Fucked a syrian girl for a while, tho, so there´s that. Not a refugee, because that would tick you autists off.
Can the parka be effay without dying it black?
>>12028900I saw a guy wearing one at an ATM two days agoDidn't look good
>>12028900It can,but it´s hard to pull off. Before I dyed mine, I wore it over a suit from time to time when I had to wear one and didn´t want to look like a banker - it worked due to the contrast, but I was never really happy with it.
tfw i bought a flecktarn from our guy ivan to dye black but it actually looks great irl and i'm not sure if i even want to dye it anymoremight buy a second desu but i'm not sure i'll ever actually wear it (camo pattern is a lot bolder than the usual boring minimal desaturated black/white/gray/blue/khaki palette i usually use)
>>12029631I have the same problem>>12028900I have one and i wear it every now and then so i feel like im getting my moneys worth but im never thrilled with how i look. Thankfully it was 20 bucks but just be careful
>>12029631same it looks so good...
Where can I buy one? Is there a significant difference between Amazon ones and others?
>>12029752https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/bw-parka-flecktarn-surplus/1155?qref=bw-parkahttps://kommandostore.com/german-bundeswehr-flecktarn-parka/amazon is just more expensive than these, there isn't any difference in the product as far as I know
which size do i have to buy to have it fit like OP pici'm 6,1 and 154 pounds
>>12028900looks good with black skinnies and docs. my asian friend has it and rocks it, being skinny and tallish helps ofc
>>12031339The kommandostore page on >>12029911 has a table to show the the measurements of each size if you scroll down
can anybody tell me how much a flecktarn parka weighs? I don't own a scale
>>12028900I wear mine every day and have a few fits. Can dump more if you want
pls do ^^. thx mate
Here's me bunning 5 zoots in it
>>12031530how's life as a 15 y/o?
the one i bought was too big. any way i can shrink it down?
when it comes to dyeing it black, does it matter whether it's the pre- or post-2005 model?
>>12031530you literally look like a school shooter
>>12033057They fit perfect mate dw about it
I'm honestly toying with the idea of getting a flecktarn parka to try out dyeing.I've seen people suggest taking off the German arm flags prior to dyeing, Which I was thinking of doing but then replacing them with patches because I'm not too keen on being associated with Germany any more.Tell me if pic related or the imperial German flags maybe would be a good Idea to patch on or not?
>/fa/ does diy>multiple 100+ reply threads for the same damn thingThis is why knoch left us
>>12034020knoch left because he's got a life. he doesn't give a shit about /fa/
>>12033977id on boots?
its a shame they look bad while wearing a backpack
>>12031339Everybody will say gr12, but i would go a little shorter. I have the same measurments and gr12 hangs almost to my knees.
>>12025661Nah, they're military surplus, meaning they might not be the best quality, or the most comfortable, or even comfortable period, but they're going to be rugged as fuck and last forever.
>>12034270tbf who needs a backpack when you have that many pockets
Similar topic, are old ike jackets taboo to wear with rankings in public in America? I thrifted an old WWII jacket with lance corporal chevrons on the deltoids and I wasn't sure if I'd be bitched out by some old veterans for wearing it?
>>12031530>can dump more if you wantno ty
>>12034654Are you near a military base or a military town? Search youtube for stolen valor videos and decide. Ask yourself, is the trend worth it?
>>12034654just cut off all the shit you didnt earn
>>12033965don't put imperial german flags on it. you'll look like the edgiest faggot on earth
>Be britbong>Cost of shipping is more than twice the price of the parka
here's mineDyed with 2 packs of Dylon. I'm wearing it with this+austrian paratrooper boots/german army trainers depending on my mood. Also various jumpers, but in this fit it's red. I think it may be one size too big, but nevermind
Second pic w/ GATs
>>12034818I assume stolen valor only really applies if you claim to have earned any of it; not to mention i'd be a 20-something wearing a 60 year old jacket.>>12035089That's what I'll likely plan on doing. It only has two lance corporal patches on each arm and a few USMC buttons and shit, I put some new patches on it in place of them or something.
Alright i'm gonna order one from Kommandostore soon, i just have a few questions. So first i'm 71" height and 36" chest and slim/skinny whatever you wanna call it, would a gr7 be best to have it fit like OP's pic, also how do I go about dying the thing without blacking out the flags?
>>12035913Only black people wear stuff like that with the ranks still in. Go to a tailor and get them removed.
>>12035913Yes but the unstable military faggots that actually give a shit dont care if you claim to earn it or not. Just the act of wearing it is a crime. Youll have depressed ptsd ridden time bombs confronting you with "muh dead brothers". Maybe i just have a disdain for loser govt welfare military people. I was harrased once buy a shabby homeless dude in mcdonalds. You know the kind. Hes there everyday on a laptop using the wifi claiming its his office. Anyways he followed me to my car once and yelled about me wearing camo, asked if i had ever served and started pontificating about his time in nam said I didnt deserve to wear his colors.
>>12035913Yea, Military member here it would be best just to go to a shop to remove the stripes to be safe or you may be approached about it either positively or negatively while just walking around.
>>12035675These objectively look like shit when they're dyed.
>>12036397>tailorjust find an old sewing kit in your house and use a seam ripper
>>12037276a sharp knife works too. lol paying money to have someone take it off
