We’re usually all about helping guys stand out in a crowd, but this season, it’s time for you to blend in a little bit. Camouflage is back and better than ever—it's more grown-up, less boy-band, and never to be confused with a piece of hunting gear. From shirts to shoes, there are plenty of ways to incorporate camo into your wardrobe. We’ve rounded up a few options below.
Runway to Real Life:
Perhaps the most common way to wear the pattern, camouflage pants are a classic we’ve seen many times before. Switch things up from the typical green by going lighter, like the Alpha Khaki from Dockers ($68, dockers.com), or darker, like the Slim Fit Jungle Camo pants from 21 Men ($30, forever21.com). Both are great ways to incorporate the print into your wardrobe without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Every man needs a good go-to jean jacket, especially now that the temperatures are dropping and you can’t leave the house without a few layers. This option from 7 For All Mankind ($298, 7forallmankind.com) is a masculine way to sport the print and will probably earn you a lot of compliments due to its unique look.
For the shirt-and-tie guys of the world, Tie Bar has got you covered. Maybe this Woven Tie ($15, nordstrom.com) isn’t all that office appropriate, but it will definitely be a trendy way to accessorize your weekend or night-out look.
Who doesn’t love a good puffer vest? We’ve recently discovered that they don’t only look great over sweatshirts, but that they also work well underneath blazers, too. No matter how you choose to wear it, the American Eagle Puffer Vest in Army Green Camo ($60, ae.com) will keep you warm and is a purchase that won’t break the bank.
Jeans, chinos, cords—almost every type of pant can be paired with this camouflage crewneck sweatshirt from Zara. ($60, zara.com). Aside from the print, it’s another extremely comfortable layer that we’ll gladly wear over and over again.
By now, you’ve probably heard patterned socks are having a moment. The Recruit Sock is a pixilated pair by Richer Poorer ($20, clubmonaco.com) that will definitely stick out from under your suit pants…in a good way.
There’s nothing more classic than pairing a sharp-looking blazer with a good pair of pants. Whether you opt for a collared shirt or a plain tee, keep whatever you wear underneath a solid color and let the Minimum Blazer in Camo ($143, asos.com) be your standout piece for the day.
