i might start with this...

Bulletproof Bomber Jacket

Quote:
One of our more popular products is the BulletBlocker Bulletproof flight jacket. It has NIJ IIIA body armor and weighs in at only 7.5lbs This classic extra full cut jacket offers a discrete way to conceal a lightweight, removable NIJ IIIA bullet-resistant liner. Jacket style body armor is designed for as inconspicuous a fit as possible when worn while standing and walking. Ballistic panels provide front, side and rear protection with torso coverage up to the collarbone area and protective extensions on the sides.

Inspired by the original MA-1 flight jacket this style jacket has been issued by the United States Air Force since the early 1940's to Air Force and Navy pilots. The MA-1 was designed to serve as an intermediate weight flight jacket for use all year. This flight jacket has timeless style and best of all it blends into any casual atmosphere. Great for spring, summer or fall.

Features and Benefits
* Extra Full cut
* 100% Nylon water repellent outer shell
* Reversible orange lining
* Ribbed collar
* Poly fiberfill lining
* Two side slash pockets
* Utility and pencil pocket on left sleeve


Ballistics
* Removable Kevlar bulletproof interior liner for cleaning and maintenance.
* Meets NIJ IIIA standards that will stop a 357 Magnum, 44 Magnum, 9mm, .45, hollow point ammunition and more. Threat level IIIA is the highest level of protection available in soft body armor.
* Provides identical anti-ballistic protective coverage area as traditional law enforcement body armor vest.
* Utilizing the latest in soft body amour protection, BulletBlocker use the latest in DuPont Kevlar XP technology, and panels have been tested by the Department of Defense.

and maybe these margiela boots...

I'd wear pretty much what I always wear (black tee and black trousers with whatever footwear), but I'd throw in one of these (in a scabbard over my back).... I'd prolly go with sneakers over boots for the agility/speed factor.

alternatively I might feel like wearing a typical off-white suit by helmut lang if possible with bare feet.

Maybe I'd recreate my Timberland 'Give racism the boot' T from many years ago (this would be a perfect time to reissue it!) ... plus some kind of jacket (best to cover the skin) and matching Timberland boots (something I've never owned, but hey, it's the apocalypse).

I like what Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg wear for the apocalypse in Melancholia (which is the type of quick apocalypse I would prefer thank you very much!), but I would upgrade it a bit.. first I'd take my mom's own apocalypse recommendation (earthquakes/flooding= "wear decent underwear because you don't want the paramedics to wonder.." ), and then something like this.. gloves for sure, and a harness.. I still can't get over the fact that in free fall (airplane disasters for instance, or an explosion I bet), people lose things like jeans but somehow remain seated with the seatbelt on.. and underwear. I either end up naked or with all of my clothes, but you can survive longer with clothes on so I prefer the latter!

(it would be really funny to be found with no clothes but underwear and a harness... ).

I'd wear this too (I love Y-3 Sport).... But, I'd have a samurai sword strapped to my back!
