Mark McNairy’s Camo Heroes in History

“Hey hey, my my. CAMOUFLAGE will never die.” If designer Mark McNairy’s Twitter declaration didn’t make his opinion clear enough, the T-shirt he shut down his show with last year (on the chest of rapper Pusha T of Clipse and Kanye West’s GOOD Music fame, no less) could not have provided much louder an encore.

Curious why his position on the pattern is so resolute, we asked McNairy, “Why will camo never die?” He replied simply (and in all caps): “BECAUSE, UNFORTUNATELY, WAR WILL NEVER DIE.” Keep reading to see McNairy’s top-five camo icons of all time, culled from decades of menswear’s form-meets-function lineage.
