Camouflage Returns In Men’s Fashion

Camouflage Returns In Men’s Fashion

A little history of military style

From time to time, styles that set standards return, and fashion historians say that every 15 or 20 years, a trend resurfaces. Just in the year 2000 many men went crazy with a very peculiar trend: pants, shirts and jackets with camouflage or military prints.

The origin of this clothing is right between the end of the 40’s, some gentlemen had to wear this style just because they were part of the battle squads, of the countries that were at war.

When World War II ended, men used their field uniforms for everyday life. Women did too. The detail is that they had nothing else to wear, no money to invest in other clothes.

What was born as a necessity became a fashion. Some time later, just in the 70’s, with the appearance of the hippies, the military print started to make shy appearances. At that time, the clothes were not worn as such, but rather patchwork fabrics that were placed in pants and jackets.

His return to fashion

It was in early 2000 that military prints made their formal appearance in the fashion world. Men and women wore large jackets that combined with basic white shirts, rarely black.

They also wore jeans with these prints that combined with white sneakers or big boots. It was the trend of the moment. The more daring ones went a bit further and made combinations with leather or fur, so that the print was the protagonist.

The best thing about the style that was formally born at the beginning of the year 2000, was the versatility of the garments. Thanks to the jackets, there was no need to worry about the cold and the large pockets could hold whatever you wanted.

And although fashion was somewhat masculine, some women simply adapted their figures to be in fashion.

Camouflage is back in men’s fashion with these clothes

military styleThese days, designers tend to be more inclusive in the clothes they make for the general public. An example of this is the fashion of the 90s which was recently reinterpreted. In addition, they try to make everything as versatile as possible because men need to do everything and have almost no time for anything.

Today’s man demands clothes that he can wear in several facets, in the same day. Of course, everything has a limit. Although there are several garments with this print, it is not that you will wear them all at the same time, you must combine them with basic elements to enhance the camouflage.

The colors that characterize this fashion are: metallic gray, dark green and earth tones. Not everything is printed. In addition to our website, department stores have several proposals that are ideal for this season.

Basic elements

  • Jeans: The main garment is the jeans, which in 2000 were worn quite wide but now the proposal is a little more modern and adjusted to the body. More ‘aesthetic’ cuts are proposed by the designers to the quite demanding public that is commanded by the millennials.
  • Joggers: also known as ‘exercise pants’ allow the man to feel more comfortable and to be able to do his daily activities without major setbacks. These pieces are quite tight to the body and have a waist band to adjust it to the wearer’s liking. They are tight at the ankles, so they give more prominence to the shoes you wear.
  • Jackets: the best thing about the camouflage turn in men’s fashion is that they give a rebellious and chic touch -at the same time- to whoever wears them. Jackets are usually in high demand for this autumn-winter season. With this print there are usually basic and even more than that, they are a must for your outfit.
  • Bags: they can’t be left out, they are very comfortable and you can wear whatever you like in them. Nowadays, men usually carry big bags due to their daily requirements (clothes for the gym, several meals, gadgets, etc.)

Military jacket plus suit. You dare?

In this winter season, gentlemen find it difficult to make certain combinations, especially since some pieces are not very functional for certain occasions.

The military style jackets are usually an excellent bet, which will highlight your joviality and keep your body in an optimal temperature. One option would be to combine the military green of the jacket with dark beige tones of a suit and a blue shirt. With this you will break the seriousness of the suit, but at the same time you will project style and a lot of elegant shoes.

Military boots: stylish footprints

They’re making appearances in several major brand showcases. They are characterized by good skin and very warm, ideal for the winter. There are several options that you can combine according to your style.

One of the models is with black leather -the military boot itself-. Its height reaches the middle of the calf. There are others that emphasize the color, which is a light or dark brown.

In general, it is usually risky to wear them, but with enough style, you can achieve a solid look. You can project a lot of masculinity and all the girls will fall round at your feet.

Accessories: military watch

A good one will always give a man projection. In addition to the shoes, women always see the watch the gentleman is wearing. As with any piece of clothing, accessories should be cared for and worn in style.

There are several brands that have taken advantage of the triumphant return of military prints to bring out limited editions of watches and wallets. Watches with this style are usually sober. They suit all those who love vintage aesthetics.

Not all of them have the military print itself. There are colors inherent to this style, some are olive green and others are black.
