    I'm not a fan of army print anything. But, if you like them..

    I do, however, like military INSPIRED pieces. Just as long as they don't have the camo all over them.

    Gotta agree with Shirtmaven. Any time you see anything Army, weither it's camo print anything, or anything inspired by military gear, check out a surplus store. Not only will it be considerably cheaper, but usually it will be more durable. The stuff is made for people to be training/fighting in so its got to be built well.

    Example- My cousin bought a peacoat for God knows how much. A friend of mine got one- same color, cut, everything- at a surplus store for like 25-50 dollars. My cousin complains that the coat isn't warm enough and by my closer inspection I noticed it was a lot thinner wool than the "real" one. The "real" one is meant for people to be wearing them on ships in the middle of the ocean in all sorts of hellish weather. The designer one was made to just look good.
