SIMPLE GUIDE TO EMBRACING CAMOUFLAGE

Camouflage has been unmistakably popular in the fashion world for decades. Men have been trapped by its masculinity and ease of styling.  Arguably making it the most used go-to fashion for men.

 

History of Camouflage

Camouflage hasnt always been used for fashion. Borrowed from nature, the military used camouflage for very practical and strategic reasons. Soldiers wear camouflage to disguise themselves and make it harder for the enemy to find them in the heat of the war.  The first practical use for camouflage was in the World War I era. The changing war tactics had urged a need for camouflage to disguise soldiers and make them hard to find against the air borne and other such long-distance warfare. Recently in the US-Afghanistan war 70,000 camouflage uniforms were made to disguise the troops within the muddy and mountainous terrains of Afghanistan.

Historically the US military has a special unit compiled of artists and designers employed to make the best and most practical use of camouflage. After all, that is the whole point of camouflage.  Adapt.  Camouflage patterns for the US military have seen various changes since then, each big war in a new territory pushing them to make it even better.

Transiting back to civilian life, this emerging need for camouflage stirred up an interest in the fashion world and guys started wearing it off the battlefield. All types of men identified with the military. This frenzy caught up like wildfire and people all over the world started wearing these camouflage prints. The urban jungle these camouflage prints made created a vibrant fashion line and men started incorporating it in T-shirts, shoes, hats, wallets, underwear and any other thing wearable.

This bulletproof design seems to have taken an unshakeable place in mens fashion industry. With the wide range of variety in patterns, colors, fabric and products, every guy is able to wear camo.

Style your camo

Whether you are new to experimenting with camo or if you are a seasoned expert, these style tips are on-point.

Look sharp and keep it simple. When first experimenting with camo, go easy. 

Pair your camo print with a solid color. Choose a contrast color, for example, White or Black.  My personal favorite in the summer is to rock a denim shirt with faded camo shorts. No risk.
