Gearhead Getaways: 5 Things to Do for Labor Day 2012 for Car Lovers
What’s your favorite design from our Car Couture™ collection? We have oriental, leopard, zebra, and our new two-tone mats — just to name a few. Each of our 14 patterns is stylish and unique, but it’s the camo pattern that is perhaps the most versatile.
Camouflage is a French word, derived from the verb camoufler meaning to conceal. The term, often shortened to just “camo,” became widely used in the English language during World War I. But it did not take long for the pattern of irregularly shaped splotches of green, brown, tan, and black to go beyond the military realm and enter the fashion and consumer world.
Today, the camo pattern is still wildly popular with both men and women, and it’s used in clothing, home decor, pet accessories, and more. Over on Pinterest, we’ve been pinning a lot of camouflage-themed inspiration for this post.
Here are 9 of our favorite camo items!
Camo Car Mats
Not only does GG Bailey have the best in luxury-weight, stain-resistant carpets, but each mat is custom made to fit your car exactly. Even large, protective cargo mats like this one are custom made.
Camo Jacket Two Ways
If you were doubting the versatility of a camo jacket, doubt no more. In this photo you see how two very similar jackets can be paired with very different styles.
Camo in Men’s Fashion
Camo is so versatile it can be used by men or women, for polished or grunge fashion statements. It all depends on your personal style.
