Thanks @makinsiadly! Hope to see you out there one day!! #drownedinblack#battlevest#kutte#metalhead#scsa
Happy Independence Day! This is Sgt. Stubby. Stubby has been called the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be nominated for rank and then promoted to sergeant through combat. Born sometime between 1916 and 1917, Sgt. Stubby was a pitbull mix who was the official mascot of the 102nd Infantry Regiment, assigned to the 26th Division. He served for 18 months and participated in seventeen battles on the Western Front. He saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, found and comforted the wounded, and once caught a German soldier by the seat of his pants, holding him there until American soldiers found him. Following the retaking of Château-Thierry by the US, the women of the town made Stubby a chamois coat on which were pinned his many medals. He also helped free a French town from the Germans. He was later injured in the chest and leg by a grenade. At the end of the war, his owner, Robert Conroy, smuggled Stubby home. After returning home, Stubby became a celebrity and marched in, and normally led many parades across the country. He met Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, and Warren G. Harding. Starting in 1921, he attended Georgetown University Law Center with Conroy, and became the Georgetown Hoyas' team mascot. He would be given the football at halftime and would nudge the ball around the field to the amusement of the fans. Sgt. Stubby died in his sleep in 1926. After his death, he was preserved with his skin mounted on a plaster cast. Conroy presented Stubby to the Smithsonian in 1956, were he remains today, still a very good boy.

Incase you didn't know, we sell blank vests for you to sew your patches on. Or, if you can't sew / don't have the time, we'll happily do it for you (in exchange for some dollar dollar bills). They often come out looking pretty gnarly like this piece here. Plenty in the works right now so I'll get back to it. ENJOY and thanks for following ⚔️ #drownedinblack#battlevest#battlejacket#patchvest#kutte

A relapse of my body,
Sends my mind into multiple seizures,
Psychologically a new human being,
One that has never been... We hope you didn't have seizures looking at this.. but it's always rad to see vests out there and how they're holding up. @ericthebull won this in a contest we ran a little while back... Our t shirt giveaway is to be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned. #drownedinblack#cannibalcorpse#vaginalskin#battlevest#denimvest

Back in 2015 Peter Beste grabbed a blank black vest from us. Here's a snap shot of what he did to the front. Like all vests, it's all in various stages of modification and re-works. He's also got a couple more he's working on right now so give his @peterbeste page a follow to stay updated. #heavymetalvest#battlevest#drownedinblack#keepittrue
2 blank vests going out today for the genius @peterbeste. He has been documenting black metal for the past 15 years and within the last year or so has taken on the project of photographing heavy metal vests for a new book. His site lists the festivals and shows he will be at this Summer... So if you're a battle vest enthusiast, I highly recommend you follow his page, check out his site, and find him at a festival. #keepittrue#battlevest#battlejacket#drownedinblack
