8921 UPCYCLED HOODED INSPECTOR LINER
Vintage Military Surplus - maharishi Patches
- Hand worked chest & hood appliqué
- Ribbed cuffs
The Upcycled Hood Inspector Liner modifies a vintage military food inspector smock with split hood detailing — allowing it to be worn as a full hood, standing collar, or lay flat across the shoulders. It also features the Buddhist mantra ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ — detaching the military surplus from its violent past.
"THEY SHALL BEAT THEIR SWORDS INTO PLOUGHSHARES, AND THEIR SPEARS INTO PRUNING-HOOKS: NATION SHALL NOT LIFT UP SWORD AGAINST NATION, NEITHER SHALL THEY LEARN WAR ANY MORE" - ISAIAH (2:4)
Recycled military surplus has always been a permanent feature of maharishi's mainline collection, including vintage surplus items that are recut and updated with accessory and cord systems.
Due to the surplus garments and fabrics used, each piece is slightly different and details such as military insignia/patches may differ from those shown in the photographs.
