Army patterns get a run in the mandrobe
When considering the correct manner in which to don army-printed fashion, images of Nickelson Wooster come to mind. The mustachioed, tattooed alpha male is an arbiter of cool when it comes to sporting a structured look of khaki tones.
While Nick seems to enjoy curating outfits of block olive, khaki and camel colours to create an army-related overall look, more and more all-camouflage-printed fabrics are appearing on the streets. While traditionally military camo is meant to conceal one from vision, in today’s urban jungle the print stands out, its pattern recently remerging from the bottom of our 1990s chest of drawers.
For those wanting to embrace this return, The Herschel Supply Co. Brand has a camo collection of bags as well as a range in olive tones for holding the day’s essentials. Italian label Diemme produced a limited-edition hunting boot in a camo-printed haircalf leather, while Sydney label D.A.C is also partial to including a khaki item or two within its collections. If you’re not yet ready to fully embrace army-esque apparel, make like the lieutenants of yesteryear in beige or khaki pants, a crisp white t-shirt and aviators.
