I chose the army fatigue cargo pant as an “essential” simply because of it’s versatility and standard. This may also be the reason why this pattern is being used now more than ever in the fashion industry. People are starting to realize that fatigue is the new black, offering a unique pop when needed. While at the same time providing a neutral balance to pop color. This trend has influenced many brands to produce merchandise such as boots, shoes, bags, ties or anything they can think of, with this disruptive pattern material.
Now, does that mean that this fall trend will run out quickly like others? I say no. Simply because there are too many ways you can pull this pattern off, and it has the ability to last forever due to fact that fatigue was made to imitate nature. Fatigue has been passed down in my family for generations and I plan to carry on tradition by passing this beautiful pattern down to my offspring. History will always find a way to repeat itself. – K.R.T.
