Celebrated Japanese clothing brand BAPE translated its edgy streetwear styles to formal cuts, resulting in a number of camouflage suits, graphic button-ups and satirically dapper images in its Fall/Winter series.

Though the clothing genres are typically on the opposite side of the fashion spectrum, BAPE shows that camouflage prints and mustache-sporting apes are possible for any occasion. The Fall/Winter line features functional looks and designs that are sure to garner its wearer a room's attention. Camouflage suits are accented with the army patterns lightly, with one showing it on the pockets and the lapel with a black on grey color scheme.

A three-piece version features a more traditional pin stripe however and is depicted with a mustache-printed tie and shirt. A crew neck shows the ape logo is a formal light, with the brand calling it 'Mr. Bathing Ape' and adorning it with some handsomely groomed facial hair.
