We will still be the most lethal fighting force the world has even known even if our belts don’t match for the next few years.”

A New Camouflage Pattern Now in Fashion for the U.S. Army

Just in time for the Fourth of July, the United States military is getting a new look.

To be specific, the Army is getting a redesigned combat uniform, with tweaked detailing and accessories, which entered select Military Clothing Sales stores Wednesday, and will gradually be absorbed into soldiers’ existing wardrobes. While some of the changes are subtle: the mandarin collar is replaced by a fold down version; the sleeve sports two pen channels, rather than three; combat boots come in what the Army calls “coyote brown” (very J. Crew) — one change is broadly significant: the print.

    Combat fatigues are not meant to be fashionable, the type worn depends on the theater of operations.

    • They have to let in Gays now so the uniform must be fashionable.

    This is the Army’s third cammo pattern redesign in the last twelve years, and every time they change, it costs a fortune.
