Five Plus One is our weekly series of buyer’s guides. We pick a specific category and dig up five great options along with one that’s a little outside the norm.
Camo isn’t for everyone, but honestly, it’s easier to work into most wardrobes than you’d think. Especially one filled with other heritage-inspired fabrics like raw denim. Featuring neutral colors and classic patterns, these jackets are easy to pair with jeans or khakis, boots or sneakers, and pretty much anything else you find yourself wearing on the reg.
With fall in full swing, we thought it was time to revisit our camo jackets edition of Five Plus One, bringing you our selection of autumnal camos plastered onto some of the finest outerwear silhouettes in the land.
If you need to scrub on your knowledge of camouflage patterns before delving into this guide, check out Understanding Camo: The 13 Patterns to Know.
1) Rogue Territory: Tanker Jacket in Palm Camo Khaki
Rogue Territory‘s Tanker Jacket in Palm Camo might not feature a traditional camo pattern, but this palm print and its khaki hues would look at home in any military archive. Made in the USA from 10 oz. Japanese canvas, this jacket shares a lot of similarities with traditional work jackets and truckers, although the hidden buttons and slit pockets give it a bit more of a refined, sleek look that balances out the wild camo perfectly.
Available for €179 from Cultizm.
2) Todd Snyder: Down Parka in Camo
If you are looking to flush out your winter wardrobe but are also looking for something camo, then Todd Snyder might have the answer. Their Down Parka in Camo is made with a Nylon exterior, 700 fill interior, and an absolutely classic duck camo pattern. With leather toggle pulls, an oversized hood, and pockets galore, this is the perfect cold-weather jacket for those who want to blend in. Unless it’s snowing, and then you’ll stand out,

3) Kapital: HAPPY PEEK-A-BOO Camo 1st Jacket
Kapital‘s HAPPY PEEK-A-BOO Camo 1st Jacket is here if you’re looking for a classic trucker jacket with a camo print rather than denim. This jacket uses a Type I pattern with the classic cropped fit, vertical pleats, and back cinch. This iconic silhouette works very well with the duck camo pattern, which itself is elevated by little peeks of Kapital’s iconic smiley. And if you are interested in matching pants, want not! Kapital has you covered there, too.

4) Joe & Co: Crossley 1 Cordura Biker Camo Biker Jacket
Joe & Co‘s Crossley 1 Biker Jacket is the water-resistant number on this list. Made in England with traditional biker details, such as the snap collar and tight fit, this jacket features YKK hardware, corozo nut buttons at the cuffs, and water-resistant Cordura nylon fabric. If the fabric is up your alley but you’re looking for a slightly different style, despair not — Joe & Co. has a wide selection of outerwear that utilizes this same camo fabric.
Available for $318 from Joe & Co.
5) Dehen 1920: Winston Jacket in Camouflage Jacquard Wool
While Dehen 1920‘s jackets and knitwear are always at the higher end of the price scale, you definitely get what you pay for. This is evident in the Winston Jacket in Camouflage Jacquard Wool. Made in USA from deadstock 18 oz. Pendleton wool, this jacket features jacquard wool camo fabric, contrasting ribbed cuffs and hem, large patch pockets, and a luxurious rayon satin lining. Despite being camo, the centerpiece is that mouton collar, a grand but wearable detail that will be the fuzzy cherry on top of any fit.
Available for $575 from Division Road.
Plus One – Kiriko: Camo Patched Military Jacket
Kiriko makes a ton of great pieces that feature patchwork or fabric accents, but their Camo Patched Military Jacket is really something special. They started with a standard, but quality, camo field jacket, cut off the colar and replaced it with a fabric lining, and then added Japanese fabric patches and embellishments to turn this piece into something truly unique. Available with many different fabrics as the added accent, this isn’t the kind of piece most of us would choose to wear every day, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less deserving of being a daily driver.
Available for $285 from Kiriko.
