ABOUT THE DESIGN:
These battle tested, vintage Dutch BDU shirts are tough as nails and have been altered by us to give them more of tailored fit. A cotton/polyester blend, they are made from a light and breathable material. Front snaps and zippered pockets add to the utilitarian and industrial look of the shirt.
On the back is the MIR Eagle logo. This eagle emblem has been around for thousands of years. It was first used by the Roman Empire. This type of Eagle was a powerful anti-establishment and anti-authority tattoo during the 50's and 60' . In Russian prison subculture, this type of symbol was usually meant to show disdain for the system and the Communist government. The eagle conveys the message "Strike first, Dont wait for them to hit you!"
MIR is a Russian word for "peace". But its an acronym for "Menya Ispravit Rastrel" meaning "Execution will Reform Me".
ON THE FRONT: SHTRAFBAT Division(~shtra'afba'at) comes from the Russian term "Shtrafniye Battal'yoni" meaning "Penalty Battalions". It was the name given to the penal battalions that were drafted from various prisons and camps around USSR during World War II. Inmates were told that if they joined the army to fight the Germans and help the Motherland, then their sentences would be commuted and they would go free after the war. Needless to say that after the war was won, Stalin ordered those inmates who served in the SHTRAFBAT to be put right back where they came from, the "Zona" (prison).
