    Hay, I bought these camo trousers from an army surplus store, a few days ago. They are a cm to an inch too long (they're a little baggy, too)—I guess rolling them up/living with it is my only option? I am not paying for them to be hemmed! They are 65% polyester/35% cotton—I know, tell me about it! Anyway, do you think this works? Please ignore the pleats (also, my total anti-smile)—haven't ironed them yet! Thanks! [​IMG]

    Shame those are about a cm too long. Really throws the entire look out of balance.

    Thanks! I know, in America, Camo has become a bit of a trend or, at least, is just dying out. In the U.K., our last camo trend was in the 90's (oh, America, you're so far behind! [​IMG])! I like this print—for army surplus, it's pretty nice! I considered a flek but it was too dark, for navy shoes/anything! At least, the beige works with the navy.

    Oh, har har! I hate it though when you get trousers that are too short to hem but still make a funny break!

    I quite like that outfit, but he looks a little douche-baggy/urban. Trouser could be tighter/shorter, shoes are average and hair is douche-y, imo! Great jacket and bow-tie, though!

    lol, that's because that urbanaesthetics guy is a douche. The bow-tie looks awful.

    Well it is black against blue. Like it with the outfit, though. Would work better with a light blue gingham or tartan, imo!

    The German army's digicam's awesome, if you can get your hands on some. Had a joint military exercise with them last spring.

    marc jacobs has some digi 'city print' camo (weird building outlines, hands, shapes, etc) that is pretty cool. I am banned from wearing that kind of stuff from the wife, though, which is understandable given her current career.

    Damn, SAS. Nothing tough, was a tankie. Leopard tanks.

    Camo's always awesome when done well.

    [​IMG] Love that blazer—where can you find one? Think the tie may be too much, but works with the pink. Hate it when people put tie bars too high! :/
