Yes, it sounds very odd, but there's certainly reason to give it credence.

Many of these garments, mainly outerwear and shirts, were designed with maximum comfort and functionality in mind, and come in a wide range of sizes to suit the needs of potential wearers. Some countries (like the US) have more "standard" sizes, I'll admit, but other European countries (like France and Germany) have sizes based on your overall height, and chest size - making for a nearly tailored fit.

The best part is, surplus by nature is sold at hilariously low prices, and oftentimes for new or like-new condition items. Barring the occasional weird odor from decades of storage, most of these pieces are ready to go, and need little care as they were designed to last for many years. Another plus is the fact that a great deal of modern fashion is based around "military" styled clothing, so there's the added joy of knowing you own the real thing, while others are paying nearly tenfold for a trendy imitation.

Still skeptical? Take a look for yourself! The Finns are my go-to place for all my winter / cold weather needs, and they just introduced $8 shipping to the US. Of course, this is just one of several great online stores - many brick-and-mortar surplus stores still exist.

This Czech M85 parka was one of my first purchases, and is still the first thing I reach for when the temperature drops far below zero - it doesn't look too bad either!

I don't own any military surplus pieces but hell yeah they look and feel great. I've been looking into buying an Alpha Industries MA-1 flight jacket or the same jacket but in a slim fit. Despite the hate, I'm really digging Kanye West's fashion line too, since it's very military inspired.

Alpha makes good MA-1's for fashion wear, but unfortunately I cannot attest to the quality of owning an original one - despite them being one of the initial contractors for both the MA-1 and M65.

Here's my personal collection, although it has grown a bit since I last updated this image.

If you're curious about anything, you're more than welcome to ask.

Woah, awesome collection. Digging a lot of pieces in there. Sucks that all the surplus stores that I've found in my area only stock lame Australian stuff

Not Clothing is way too edgy for my taste fam. Also their pieces are loud as fuck

edit just so I don't triple post: I Love Ugly has been one of my favourite brands that I forgot to mention. Their early pieces were a little fuccboi-ish but lately they've been hella improving with their vision. Lots of looser fitting garments which I'm totally into. Last piece I bought was a pair of raw denim Edo pants, and they're basically the only pants I've been wearing.

I don't have a brand preference. Whatever fits and has a decent amount of pockets is good for me.

If it's Australian stuff, that's actually pretty highly valued on the surplus market.

AUSCAM, and all variations thereof (especially Air Force) can fetch pretty high prices - I'd even consider purchasing some, plus a finder's fee of course.

Most of this stuff I've purchased and collected came from complete strangers on the internet anyways.

Well, if you're talking about the predominantly red / orange / green jacket, then you're in luck!

That would be Swiss "Alpenflage," and it's currently cheaper than air in most online stores.

http://www.keepshooting.com/swiss-m83-field-jacket.html

This would be your best bet, buy some now before supplies dry up! It's a very comfortable, practically-made jacket and will last for years if cared for properly.

As for the black and white spotted one, it's actually navy / light blue - it's a US Navy NWU (Navy Work Uniform) deck parka, designed to keep sailors warm from the chilly sea mist. I actually got that one free as a gift, and it's the only thing in my collection that doesn't fit me. I don't think it's one of the Gore-Tex ones, but I'd still be prepared to drop about $50-$80 for a nice one - your best bet would be eBay or any surplus store that has more modern garments for sale. Here's what the pattern looks like:
