Three of my most often used camo things - an old replica-of-a-helmet-bag I've had since the 90s, an APC freebie tote and my worktools roll
Two years ago, I wondered if the camo print will be the "new florals" for Summer. It's taken some time but I think it's happening (see here, here, here and of course this cool dude here who has a big part to play in placing camo in the fashion spotlight)!
Today, I wonder if long-time lovers of this utilitarian fabric like myself would get sick of the print or be embarrassed to be seen in some (don't want to be mistaken for late bandwagon-jumpers) the day it truly becomes ubiquitous in a fashion-y way. Or see it as a sign to stock up on things never made before in the standard US Woodland/ERDL/Tigerstripe/Digital camouflage patterns! Or time to Ebay away our decades-old collection to new fans. Or look forward to seeing fresh designed-purely-for-fashion camo prints in wacky colour combos! Or, perhaps, the day might never come. Haha. Right now, however, I'm thinking of my next camo (small) bag purchase in this East German it's-camo-but-doesn't-look-like-camo Falling Rain pattern. It could have been mine weeks ago if the army surplus store didn't have such irregular opening hours. Bah.
