Rise of Military Camo: "The emergence of aerial and trench warfare during World War I gave rise to the strategy - and art - of camouflaged battle dress, sparking an unexpec…tedly fruitful collaboration among soldiers, artists and naturalists like Abbott Thayer, whose 1909 book "Concealing Coloration in the Animal Kingdom" became required reading for the U.S. Army's newly launched unit of camoufleurs. "Now that troops had to avoid bombs dropped from the sky, mines underfoot and bullets from pretty much everywhere else, the gloriously regal (not to mention flamboyant) garb worn in an earlier era of warfare began to seem a bit outdated, if not downright dangerous. "It is a wonderful opportunity, this game of hokus-pokus," the New York Times mused in a 1917 Op-Ed about the newfangled concept of "camouflage," borrowed from the French word camoufler, "to disguise." "Military camo went mainstream after a hunting enthusiast named Jim Crumley used a Magic Marker to draw vertical tree-trunk lines on a few pairs of tie-dyed coats and pants in the late 1970s. A decade and two mortgages later, his patented "Trebark" design had gone from being featured in a few small ads in Bowhunter magazine to appearing in nearly every major outdoors catalog in the country. Origins of Hunting Camo: RealTree Camo "In 1986, very early in the camouflage revolution, Bill Jordan decided to try his hand at designing a camo pattern. "Sitting in his parents' front yard one day in 1986, with paper and colored pencils, Bill began by sketching and coloring the bark of a giant oak tree that grew there. Bill believed that by layering the images of twigs and leaves over a vertical bark background, he could create a three-dimensional appearance that would match a variety of terrain-and make his pattern distinct. And thus Realtree camo was born. Mossy Oak Camo "Mossy Oak began in West Point,Mississippi, with a fistful of dirt. Obsessed with the notion of getting closer to critters, Mossy Oak's founder and CEO, Toxey Haas, gathered up a bag of leaves, sticks and dirt from under his favorite hunting tree, walked into a fabric factory and dropped it on the counter. Facing an audience of startled faces he made a bold request, "Can you print fabric that looks like the stuff in the bag?" "People snickered, shook their heads and probably contemplated calling security. Little did they know he was on to something big. "Toxey realized that the key to developing natural looking camouflage was to use natural elements: dirt, leaves, bark and limbs, along with their natural colors to allow the wearer to blend in perfectly with their natural surroundings. Before then, most camouflage patterns simply obscured the outline of the wearer, which made the person more difficult to see at a distance."
That is strictly a matter of personal taste. If you plan to carry it in the woods then Mossy Oak would be the way to go.
The French military instituted the first camouflage unit in 1915, so the first official military use of camo was then. However, people have been using clothing and patterns to… conceal themselves from time immemorial.
