As if you needed any more convincing that the recent influx of camo-print fashions still held relevance, the Toronto Raptors announce the NBA’s first ever camouflage jersey. The move to create the camo jerseys is rooted in the Raptors’ ownership group’s support of the Canadian military. The jerseys will make their first official appearance on March 21 as part of the Canadian Forces Night. The print is mocked up in Canadian Disruptive Pattern, a traditional Canadian computer-generated digi-camo that has been used in a variety of climates and military operations through the years since its development. Although the application of the camouflage print aesthetic is questionable, the back-story of this NBA jersey iteration makes it more than mentionable.
