It's no secret that I love camo, especially all of the modern tailored applications of the design. Growing up in a rural part of Florida, I was surrounded by people who used it for more practical purposes in hunting or the military but never as a fashion statement. Now designers, mass market and high end alike, are creating camouflage pieces for your everyday life that are just as chic and eye-catching as anything else in your wardrobe. This Paul Smith bomber is a primary example: perfectly tailored with a luxe wool spin on the typical camo print. It's the ideal companion for a rugged look like the one that I'm sporting here, or it can add a touch of rebellious style to your work look. With the modern options of camo on the market, it's safe to say you'll never blend in.
