Know your camo
Vintage camouflage patterns have been replaced with digital "pixelated" patterns that are highly effective at blending into the background.
The original Canadian Disruptive Pattern - CadPat was adapted for the United States Marines and renamed MarPat, using different colors in the same basic pattern to produce camouflage for woodland and desert locations.
Similar to the uniforms worn by US troops stationed around the world now.
The Urban Camo pattern, in black and grey colors, is produced for the consumer market.
Choose the size and pattern you like from military surplus stores and designer labels. Some brands come in 10-20 different patterns and solid colors. For the best fit, refer to a chart of regulation clothing sizes.

Mens camo cargo pants and shorts
Oakleys come in four styles of camo shorts. Adventure Walk Shorts and Cruise Walkshorts have standard pockets, and they're "amphibious" so they can double as swimming trunks.
