On the Snow: Camouflage

army surplus jacket for skiing

There is a lot of buzz lately about the camouflage “trend”.  Agreed, camo is everywhere – from Valentino’s Spring 2013 fashion collection to utilitarian L.L. Bean Hunter’s tote bags and nearly any other functional or frivolous product you could desire.  I see the pattern more as a standard and accept it as commonplace.

There is no shortage of camo on the slopes manufactured by ski, snowboard and outdoor gear brands.  But this guy caught my eye with his army surplus jacket appropriated for skiing and paired with technical pants.  The jacket looks right on him – and what he likely lacks in performance of sport-specific outerwear is balanced out in style with authenticity.
