    take it as seriously or as light-hearted as you like...

    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.." :rolleyes::lol:), 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... :rofl:).

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

    the articulated knees and the wraparound ankle strap kill me...
    not to mention the reflective strips...
    they are some sort of light wool soft gauze-like fabric fused onto some nylon kind of tech fabric...
    amazing...

    :wub:...

    The day news of the apocalypse broke :ninja:, what I actually wore was a black wool Lanvin crewneck dress with puffed sleeves, black tights, and black glazed kid pumps.
