    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! :/

    [​IMG] Master Coat, yoox, $295??
    Dunno, construction looks a little naff, and the camo is a little dark/off—thanks, though! Btw, you have the funniest avatar I have seen, in a while!

    I think this particular camouflage pants pattern you have is way too distracting of your overall look, but you are keeping the rest of your outfit simple which is the way to do it! Unfortunately, you might want to get them tailored a bit for a slimmer silhouette. Much respect for getting balls and pulling it off!!

    Na this is wrong. Being all tailored and buttoned down and then throwing in a huge piece of incongruous print doesn't work for me. Throw in some extra stuff to set the outfit apart dog. But don't just smash together a bunch of blog-trash-approved statement pieces and call it a day like that other guy in the thread.
