If you are wearing BDU's because you like the look, then whatever.

If you are wearing BDU's to make people think you are military and sell more stuff, that's dishonest and I don't like it.

If you are wearing BDU's and you are/were military and you are doing it to sell more stuff, I still don't like it. You can capitalize on your service for monetary gain but you shouldn't use the uniform to do so.

Sounds like this guy either was military or is pretending to be military. Either way I agree that it's disrespectful to use the uniform for commercial gain.

I wanna rephrase that a little... If the guy is in the military, the above standards should and do apply from what I'm reading. A civilian however, that would be a different story because now you're dealing with freedom of expression and speech, etc, etc that a soldier doesn't get to enjoy typically.
That clause got a young woman tossed from West Point...

Army logo on a BDU blouse un buttoned with BOOBIES hanging out will do that... However... If your a civilian I doubt it something that would be pursued.

If he's not doing anything more than sell commemorative artwork, leave him the hell alone. I could understand if he was being genuinely disrespectful. But artwork honoring service members ain't disrespectful.
