Over the weekend, the Russian government divulged images of President Vladimir Putin on vacation in southern Siberia, where he stayed for a three-day holiday.
Posing for action shots, Putin kayaked, snorkeled, and fished in the vast outdoors of Siberia, while kitted in a serious array of camouflage and military garb that could have been straight out of a WTAPS collection. Putin’s low-key fire outfits even garnered coverage on the e-pages of publications like The New York Times and The Guardian.
Check out our (completely unserious) guide to Putin’s Siberian vacation ‘fits below.
You can’t deny the layer game here. Putin could have easily mixed up the patterns with a classic BAPE camouflage jacket, or something more technical from ACRONYM. For his next Siberian expedition, a layering piece from Stone Island might not be a bad fit either. At the time of publishing, we were unable to locate any retailers stocking the twig accessory pictured above.
For lugging around fishing and camping gear, we would recommend Porter’s Counter Shade backpack, or this roomy duffle from Filson. Oakley’s Radar Pace sunglasses aren’t far from Putin’s Speznas shades, packing a punch with built-in earbuds for covert communication with the Kremlin.
