CLOAKED IN CAMO
20 BEST CAMO HOODIES FOR MEN IN 2020
You’d be forgiven for thinking hoodies are a fairly recent garment, but the truth is they can be traced right back to the Dark Ages when monks and villagers who worked outdoors, donned hooded cloaks.
However, the style of hooded sweatshirt we know today was first produced in the United States in the 1930s.
The iconic streetwear brand, Champion is credited with first producing the contemporary hoodie, which was marketed to outdoor workers dealing with freezing temperatures in upstate New York.
However, it wasn’t until the 1990s and the rise of the hoodie in hip hop culture that it was actually termed a “hoodie” or "hoody".
A few of the hoodies in this list are street classics that are sought after and unfortunately difficult to find.
However, this list mostly features classics that are available for 2019 with the freshest military inspired prints.
1. BAPE COLOR CAMO HOODIE JACKET MENS

3. Yakuza Sicario Mens Hoodie
When a label is branded after the name of a powerful Japanese mafia (Yakuza) and the hoodie is named after the Mexican word for a drug cartel hitman (Sicario), you know badass is the look the label is going for. We think they pulled it off.
From East Germany, Yakuza is a streetwear label created out of the back of a van with a desire to create "an exceptional company that lives up to the dark artistic vision of real lives lived".
Just be careful wearing it in certain parts of Tokyo and Mexico City.

Along with Bathing Ape, Supreme is one of the most respected and hyped streetwear brands out. Box Logo Hoodies are also some of those most sought after, so to find one you may need to check out second-hand retailers.

We don't know much about the Eastern European label O&T, other than that they make tactical gear and this reasonably priced hoodie with a quality cut and cool camouflage print.
