Check out these camouflage pants from Loudmouth Golf. Sure, they’re Woodland-esque, but they have a little something extra going for ’em.

Nick Wooster + Leffot = Woodland Camo Shoes

Monday, February 27th, 2012

A collaborative effort between Nick Wooster and Leffot has led to these woodland camo shoes. The Brogue Cap Toe and Wingtips, made in England by Alfred Sargent, are made from camo suede with triple leather soles. They’ll debut in September of this year, priced at $750 for the Brogue Cap Toe, and $695 for the wingtip. Pairs can currently be reserved with a 20% deposit. The materials are nice, but you’re definitely paying for the name with these shoes.



Sophnet – Camouflage Knitwear

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Japanese fashion label Sophnet has developed two pieces of Camouflage knitwear as part of their Spring/Summer 2012 line. The Camouflage Knit Cardigan has the blue sleeves and full-back camo while the Camouflage Crew Neck Knit features the single sleeve camo. Pricing for the Cardigan is ¥26,250 ($330 US) and ¥23,100 ($290 US) for the Crew Neck. If you ask me, the line needs more MultiCam and A-TACS, especially at that price.

SHOT Show 2012 – Wilderness Dreams

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012


I knew as I passed this company’s booth at SHOT that it would be among the highest levels of irresponsibility for me to not write something about them, right? Anyway, Wilderness Dreams sells lingerie, nightwear, and swimwear in three camouflage colors: Pink, Snow, and Mossy Oak Break Up. Seen above is the Baby Doll Set in Pink. They also have a smaller line, only three items so far, of menswear in Mossy Oak Break Up.


UES Camouflage-Printed Leather Sneakers

Sunday, January 15th, 2012


These Woodland-esque camouflage-printed sneakers by Upper Echelon Shoes feature a side zip, rubber sole, and padded insole. They also feature ‘gold’ chains that lay over the laces, which, depending on taste, may be a positive. If not, then a good pair of wire cutters would remedy that design choice real quick.

Available for purchase here.

A-TACS In Star Wars?

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

They may have existed a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but it seems the Rebel forces were a bit ahead of the curve with the camouflage they used on Endor.

Gorillaz Special Edition Converse Chuck Taylors

Monday, November 28th, 2011

Coming February 2012, Converse will be releasing special edition Chuck Taylors based on cartoon hip-hop/electronic band The Gorillaz. Four prints will be available, all taken from artwork done by Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the band. Appropriately enough (for this blog, anyway) the only print images released so far are of the camouflage seen on the ‘Geep’ featured on the cover of the band’s self-titled debut album. They’ll be available internationally from select retailers and online stores and will retail for approximately 60 USD.

MultiCam In Call Of Duty And Battlefield

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

MultiCam has gained more prominence in the entertainment industry, being featured in recent movies, tv shows, and video games. Here’s a few examples of some high profile games that have featured MultiCam in some capacity.

The first instance in the CoD series featuring MultiCam starts at Modern Warfare 2. Though not directly mentioned, it seems like members of the multinational Special Forces group Task Force 141 featured in the campaign and Multiplayer are wearing a MultiCam variant that makes up the coloring of their kit and pants.

Modern Warfare 3 is one of the few games that feature MultiCam by name. If you’ve played MW3, or watched any videos online, then it’s likely you’ve noticed that Metal Team, the campaign’s resident Delta operators, are decked out in MultiCam battle uniforms, as are the Delta multiplayer models. It’s also an unlockable weapon’s skin that can be used on all the game’s primaries.

Finally, Battlefield 3 has MultiCam as worn by the Marine EOD operator in your squad in Single Player. It’s also an unlockable multiplayer skin as ‘Paratrooper’ camo (pause at 0:47).

0’Clock Camo Watches

Monday, November 7th, 2011

The 0’Clock Watches are Italian-made time pieces with a simplified design: the clock face features no numbers and has a Woodland camo design. What they lack in detail they make up in customization. The time piece is easily removed from its silicon band and can be placed in similar bands of varying colors and sizes. Each 0’Clock watch also comes in a sealed can with a pop-top lid, an amusing feature that mimics opening a can of food. 0’Clock Camo Watches can be purchased from Tactical Distributors.

Army Commando Costume

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Available at Target, the boy’s Army Command Costume consists of two pieces, the uniform and helmet. It’s made from 70% polyester and is available in small, medium and large sizes. My favorite aspect of this costume is the ‘Army’ tag; it’s a nice touch that lets other people know: “Yes, I am pretending to be an Army Commando this fine Halloween’s night. Candy, please!” There’s also something familiar about the camouflage that I can’t quite put my finger on…

Thanks to Gordon from Indy for the tip.

Designer Diapers In Camouflage

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Apparently designer diapers are a really big thing right now. This naturally has led to Huggies coming up with camouflage diapers (since camouflage is always fashionable, amirite?). Now, while I can’t vouch for the effectiveness of this Navy-esque pattern for your toddler in the field, there is a good cause behind it: every package sold equals a diaper donated to a needy military service family. If you’re looking to buy some of these, they’re available exclusively at Wal-Mart.

G Weekend Worrior Camo Bikini

Friday, August 5th, 2011

It’s never an inappropriate time to show a picture of a gun-toting bikini model, at least on this site, and since it’s Summer this image is even more fitting. The subject of interest this time, however, is the bikini itself. The G Weekend Worrior Camo Bikini comes in three camouflage patterns: ACU (seen above), AOR1 and the ever-popular MultiCam. Each bikini also comes in a same-camo bag and is available in sizes small, medium and large. And before you ask, yes, the spelling of ‘Worrior’ is deliberate.

G.I. Joe Camouflage

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Did you see Dennis Quaid in ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’ and notice that interesting camouflage pattern he was wearing? Although from a distance it looks a bit MultiCam-ish, the pants actually “…feature a traditional woodland pattern, as well as mixed digital squares and the G.I. Joe logo.”, the later of which is a neat little addition you can see in the image above. The official description came from PropStore.com, who is offering the General Hawk Abernathy uniform in its entirety.

Along with the Joe camo pants above, then set also comes with an Army Green XXL Under Armor shirt with the official G.I. Joe insignia and a tan belt with metal slide inclosure. Besides the uniform itself, the buyer gets a set of production tags that display the text “Hawks” and “Chng #5/Hero” and an official Certificate of Authenticity from Paramount Pictures. The only problem is, it ain’t cheap.

Vinoflage – Grape Leaf Camo

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Available from Francis Ford Coppola Winery, this unique camouflage pattern was developed by Anahid Nazarian, Director of the American Zoetrope Research Library, while working on a film for Coppola. She got the idea from observing various countries’ camouflage patterns. After noticing that several patterns featured shapes very similar to grape leaves, Nazarian decided it would be a fun idea to develop camo constructed entirely of a grape leaf pattern. Besides the available apron, shirts with this pattern were also made available to Chris Morisoli, a 1st Lieutenant formerly stationed in Iraq. Originally one was sent to 1st Lt. Morisoli in a care package from Nazarian sent on behalf of the Coppolas. He liked it so much, and so did the men in his unit, that they donated additional shirts so every one of his fellow Soldiers could also wear them.

TakTik LunaTik Woodland Camouflage iPOD Nano Watch

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

The common iPod may be slowly dying off, but if you happen to have a Nano 6th Generation, then you may have found its second calling. LunaTik offers a number of premium conversion kits for turning an iPod Nano 6th gen 8/16GB into a dedicated primary wristwatch, although the classic TakTik is my personal favorite, for its woodland inspired camouflage pattern, which due to the manufacturing process is unique for each watch. The kit itself features an anodized housing made from aerospace grade aluminum, solid steel hardware that is PVD plated, and straps made from high grade silicone rubber. The result is a fairly inexpensive digital watch with a number of useful features.

Backyard Safari Camouflage

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Backyard Safari Camouflage is effective scrim covering from a surprising source, a collection of outdoor gear and toys meant for use with children. Available in two seasonal colors, this scrim is 5×8 feet with a unique, stretchable die-cut design. It’s made from sturdy rip-stop nylon and stands up to wet weather. Great for use as a tent cover, sun shade, blind, or for building a shelter, along with its obvious use as environmental camouflage. It’s pretty cool to see playthings with more practical applications.

ARMA 2 Army Special Forces (Multicam) v1.0

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Binkowski of the Bohemia Interactive forums has released a patch for ARMA 2, a tactical FPS, that adds Special Forces decked out in MultiCam. Specifically, the patch adds six character models modeled after US Army Special Forces ODA’s and two translators, four backpacks, and a communications pack that functions as a UAV pack. The author of the patch admits the MultiCam swatch is somewhat out of date, but the dedication to keeping up with current military camouflage usage is commendable.

Ghost Army Tactical is now working on their own line of gear, including the “Penumbra” Boonie. Each Penumbra is made from 50/50 NYCO Ripstop US Army Issue Multicam low IR Glow material. 550 Para cord attachment points cover the hat, allowing for the addition of gillie suit scrim, while loop Velcro panels allow for the attachment of patches, IR glint tape, and an IR distress beacon attachment.

Elusion Camo

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Most camouflage simply breaks up your form, but these designs by Lee Dufresne of Elusion Camo are designed to seamlessly blend into the environment. Pictures are taken of trees, bushes, cornfields, ect. and are layered into a non-repeating linear pattern, which is then vaporized and transferred onto fabric. The camo itself is made from a thin, baggy material designed to go over clothes, which reacts to light in a more natural way and makes proper use of shadows. The camo also features pockets designed with the hunter in mind and uses a less noisy form of Velcro. Elusion Camo is fully made in the USA.

Blackhawk! Advanced Boonie Hat

Friday, May 13th, 2011

It’s the classic Boonie hat design, but with a few modern features added by Blackhawk! to appeal to the modern warrior. The hat itself is 50/50 NYCO with a self fabric brim lining and self fabric side-band branch loops. It includes mesh side vents and crown lining, and a hidden mesh map pocket. A square VELCRO loop on the crown allows for attachment of badges and other materials, and a drawstring with rear cordlock can be used as a chinstrap or cinching cord. The DM3 Desert Digital camo model is shown above, but MultiCam is also available, which I happen to own. It’s a very good Boonie, although I suggest going a half-size above what you normally wear for a hat, otherwise it could be a bit tight.
