Captains Ring

Stolen from a thread in the mil forum.

First we had the epaulette war, silver/gold plated 1-5 bars.

Then we had the flightsuit hangbags at dawn, green/blue or pink.

Now we have the ultimate for ripping the piss item for all pilots.

The captains ring


If anyone know's anyone who own's one please out them.

I'm glad somebody has copied my thread from the Mil forum to here, it will hopefully achieve a wider audience of ridicule.

Would anyone admit to wearing such a chavvy piece of tat other than those with egos to match?

Stylish it ain't

These people obviously know the "poser" market well. I am sure they will sell loads. Look at Brietling, etc.

Be fair, it's a perfectly reasonable fashion accessory....

Where is the half-crown/sixpence adjuster?

I have not laughed at a thread on here that much in ages! Absolutely brilliant.

Only a true weapons grade tool would buy one of those.

What is worrying though, is that some people clearly have...

If you were anorexic you could wear them on each arm instead of epaulettes.

But bloody hell, I cringed so hard when I saw the ad, I nearly turned inside out.

This will surely be at the same danger level as a bottle of water and security will stop you taking it on the aircraft!
