Wouldn't that defeat the point of the camo?

Anyway, it's been at least reasonably popular ever since I remember out in rural areas (and we're talking Northeastern Maryland too) so I suspect Kentucky would be far more prevalent. In 90% of the circumstances, I don't see the big deal either way.

Although a friend of mine did go to a wedding in Kentucky (sensing the pattern?) where everyone on the groom's party wore camo. She, on the otherhand, had to buy an expensive red dress.

Re: When did camouflage become acceptable attire?

I saw people on college campus in the early 70s wearing camo, and not all of them were veterans. Even though Vietnam was an unpopular war, there were still a few imposters/poseurs/military buffs during it who wanted you to think they were ex-military.

The thing I don't understand is pink camo. Where exactly does that help you hide? I also don't understand the digicam pattern, are we hiding inside a computer monitor that we need to be pixelated?

But as for tux accessories coming in camo pattern... you can get vests and ties patterned in cartoon characters, so why not camo?
pink camo is my pet peeve. Where would you hide in that? the field where Horton loses his clover?

In a cluster of little girls who watch too many princess movies?

Why is there an ad for HP in your post??

ETA: NM, now that I refreshed, it's gone. That was odd.

While it may serve a function in a military of hunting context, its also a pattern/design in a fashion sense no different than stripes, dots or paisley.

Girls in camo skirt are hot and the skirts can come in a wide array of camo colors.
