How to wear Camo and why it's back

How to wear Camo and why it's back

Camouflage is a pattern inspired by mother nature that dates back to the early 1900s. This pattern of disguise was originally worn as uniforms during World War I. The popular pattern has come and gone over the years, continuing to make an appearance from time to time. Today, camouflage has made its voice loud and clear again, after being silenced for roughly 15 years — ever since Cady Heron wore army pants and flip flops, so everyone wore army pants and flip flops.

While this pattern is reminiscent of early 00s fashion - or even men at war - us fashionistas have taken camouflage and added our own modern-day flair to it. As for the SS ‘18 fashion shows, this pattern was painted among men’s collections - which became a defined fashion statement for upcoming streetwear appearances. Designers Zadig & Voltaire both displayed camo pieces - including boiler suits and cargo pants - in their lines. Jeremy Scott introduced camo trousers, while Michael Kors dabbled with camo jackets. At Brooklyn Cloth, we also wanted to jump on the bandwagon-in-disguise. We will be adding 28 camo pieces to our fall collection - we know, that’s a lot of “hidden” content on our page.


Blend in at the BB gun tournament

Details of this jacket include a “Savage” box logo on the front – ensuring your BB gun pals know you mean business.

Camo Savage Anorak Hoodie  

This jacket is a perfect piece for a brisk night with the attached hoodie and drawstrings, as well as the front flap pocket. We *dabbled* with splashes of red for the drawstring and the “Savage” logo box to add that modern-day camo flair. We also offer this jacket without the logo, as well a child’s size with a “Notorious” logo box, so that you and your little bro can match at the bb gun tournament.

We’ve got a Camo Cozy Knit Hoodie to pair with your new shorts for a killer combo. I mean, if denim on denim can happen, why can’t camo on camo? Give it a go, pal!
