I've worked in and around security since I was 16. Fashion is a non issue; functionality, durability, and pragmatism are the tools of the trade. Working in an urban environment, however, brings the need for discretion, which opens the door to aesthetics.
I work around weapons every day. You have purses, I have pistols. They're all accessories. There are brand names, chic guns, ugly guns, clunky guns, guns that explode when you try to shoot them, knockoffs of brand names from south america. Functionality is important, but when it works the same, why not choose an elegant weapon over an ugly one?
Weapons are fashion, just like anything else. I like simple. We'll see where this project goes. I'm sure I'll get some fantastically nasty comments, but what's a gay boy to do but work with his surroundings? Ma vie.
