PLA Chic

Whether making a fashion statement or blending in with the masses, the 3501 Peoples Liberation Army Surplus Store on the East Third Ring Road has what you need. Camouflage yourself with a combat jacket for RMB100, or make a retro statement with faded olive drab fatigues.

 

 

Maybe your mama doesn't wear combat boots, but you can for a cool RMB246. For the hardcore adventure traveller the store sells binoculars ranging from RMB80-910, with a battle-hardened case for an additional RMB60. Or head off into the wilderness with an entrenching tool that combines a shovel, pick and seat all in one nifty implement. And after a long day of digging, you can curl up in a sleeping bag (RMB450) or rest your bones on a portable field stool (RMB20).

For the knick-knack inclined, there are PRC fiftieth anniversary pocket watches for RMB70, and other PLA memorabilia. And when you want to either look tough or wear something special for a night out clubbing, check out the camouflage t-shirts (RMB65) with the ever-so-hip urban color scheme of white, black and gray. Pair it up with a cool army hat (RMB8) in either mottled or woodland camouflage.
