The Camo Shirt Spectrum

Styling Tip

A subtle pop of pattern underneath a cardigan or jacket is one way to wear these without standing out too much.

Camouflage is seemingly everywhere these days, which is ironic, considering its original purpose. A mainstay in streetwear brands and surplus stores, menswear's camo moment doesn't seem to be going anywhere at all. During fashion week in New York, we've noticed a lot of guys adding a camouflage button down shirt into their outfits, whether worn untucked with the sleeves rolled up, or under a blazer to give a suit jacket a rugged feel. Here are a few we've got our eyes on, available now in a range of prices.


ASOS, $52 / $21

An affordable option, cut in a popover style from a bright, bold ethnic camo.


Stussy, $78

Chambray printed with woodland camo—a menswear staple mash-up.


Wings + Horns, $195

A jacquard cotton button-down with chainstiched seams in black and white.


Staple, $64

Designer Jeff Staple takes a tan cotton workshirt and adds a woodsy feel.


Mark McNairy, $175

A reimagined button-down in a desert-patterned ripstop nylon.


Hamilton 1883, $265

Nick Wooster takes his love for camo and translates it into a fun shirt.
