The best camo menswear styles for fall 2018

Camo Gets an Upgrade ... Again

Here's how to wear the bold new take on the classic pattern

It's not really shocking that camouflage is back. It never really went away. But then again, why should it? The military motif is ruggedly masculine and muted in a way that allows it to somehow read as understated. Which is why high-end designers and mass brands find new ways to reproduce them season after season. So yeah, camo patterns have been hot before, but the stylish reinventions for Fall 2018 provide a fresh way to liven up your wardrobe without looking like an off-duty soldier. The volume has been turned up a bit. There's a more athletic and slightly luxurious feel to the pieces. And we're all for it. So find a piece or two to suit your style. Herewith, a few of our favorites.
