Dyed in the Canvas

  • Najib Benouar

... and the camouflages just keep on coming.

This latest installment comes from the collective minds of LA-based label U.S. Alteration (yes, that is Lupe Fiasco in their lookbook) and one of our favorite men’s shops, Union. They’ve taken military-issue fatigues and put them through an over-dye process, giving the camo a muted look—except for the few patches they’ve left exposed. It might be the most inventive repurpose of camo we’ve seen yet. They’re launching the gear this weekend in LA with a big to-do, so those of us not in town will have to wait till the stuff makes its way onto the Web.

In the meantime, take a closer look at the “Over-Die” collection after the jump.»

Mountain Men: Justin Timberlake and Lupe Fiasco scale Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for the worldwide water crisis. We feel more aware already. [Pitchfork]
