You won’t be awarded the purple heart for shopping at I. Goldberg, the Philadelphia Army Navy store that outfits the rugged urban soldier, but you will be awarded some fashion brownie points.
Stocked with standard surplus gear like wool pea coats, bright-orange hunting vests, and water canteens, along with brands like Carhartt, Timberland, Levi’s, Wrangler, North Face, and Dickies, these clothes, shoes, and accessories are designed to get you ready for the trenches, but they also make good understated-yet-stylish city wear.
