The Brave and the Bold

Just a little while ago while election excitement was at its peak and the trades were stuffed with images of teary eyed voters in patriotic colors I started to wonder about the design flexibility of the american flag. I've been jealous of the union jack for a long time. In my mind its associated with british punk as much as with the Queen. Even though I have some rights to a dual citizenship I've lived my whole life with apple and rather than kidney pie. Perhaps its just my own personal familiarity but I can't see the american flag looking as cool on anyone as the british banner.

This photo taken by Facehunter makes me think of colonial costume, revolutionary war re-enactment, and Sam the Eagle.
