    As for camo then - it can be gotten right just fine, it's simply the case that almost nobody does. My favourite camo piece is this wonderful cardi from Comme Des Garcons:

    Which would look smashing layered with other neutrals.
    Problem is, I bet it's a lot more expensive then it should be... (you're right, it does look nice).

    You bet it is. About £300 and no suspect rip-offs in sight...
    Mentioning no names.

    A pocket square should NEVER match your tie unless you're forced to at a wedding and then only at gunpoint.

    And the pocket square and outfit in question in all kinds of awesome.

    Agree totally with you but at £125 is the pocket square worth it?

    Nice affordable camo pocket square here (20USD + £USD worldwide shipping). (Some lovely ties too but unfortunately only skinny and I like mine slightly wider.)

    I personally quite like the print.
    As other have mentioned All Saints have a few camo items in their look book for S/S and they look great.
    Not sure whether I'd be able to pull it off (probably not), but I would definitely look into it if I saw a jacket / cardigan in a shop somewhere to see how it looked.

    What with print being quite big at the minute I don't see how camo is being labelled as a no go area. Particularly when some of the printed items that are currently available are even more garish and have to be carefully selected or layered with a solid colour to stop you looking like you don't have a clue. Camo is what it is. I reckon it's just as easy to get right as it is to get wrong.

    But I like it!

    I would get a pocket square and that's about it, I just don't see any longevity what so ever. Spending £100+ on that ghastly All Saints biker jacket or blazer would be a terrible decision.

    I agree about the current crop of All Saints items: the blazer and biker jacket especially are nothing special. The camo print they use is virtually identical to vintage military items, and thus for the price you really are over-paying.
