Two ways to wear camo


GQ magazine posted an article to its website recently titled How GQ are you? 3 Ways to Wear Camo. Apparently, wearing camouflage is trendy again, but I would argue there are only two ways to truly wear camo that stand the test of time:

  1. In military service to one’s Nation.

  2. In search of wild game.

What the urbane hipster fails to recognize is, camouflage is for concealment, not to stand out. Being a more refined variety of redneck myself, this is what I think of when considering camo as fashion (notice the redneck fire alarm on the wall behind him):

And… There is currently only one man that can pull this look off well:

And since this use of camo is a part of an overall hunting lifestyle, I think Uncle Si gets a pass.
