The Best Camp Menswear from Mr. Porter

It’s the first Monday of May, which can only mean one thing: the Met Gala. With this year’s theme being something as fun and subjective as ‘Camp,’ it should make for a delightfully tongue-in-cheek red carpet. (Fingers crossed.) For those of us who won’t be attending the benefit tonight, we’ve rounded up some of the best menswear items from Mr. Porter to add a little camp to your everyday look before you go see Camp: Notes on Fashion when it opens on Thursday. Read on.


Gucci Camp-Collar Printed Silk Shirt


Gucci is the official sponsor of the exhibition, with creative director Alessandro Michele serving as one of the hosts, and this heavy-metal-inspired graphic shirt is the perfect way to show gratitude.

Paul Smith Pencil Silver-Tone And Enamel Cufflinks


These cartoon-like pencil cufflinks are the perfect way to add some risible flair to an otherwise mundane business look.

$125, available on



Balenciaga Printed Cotton-Twill Shirt

Prada Logo-Appliquéd Printed Neoprene Track Jacket


A trippy take on an Italian Renaissance painting printed on a neoprene jacket? Couldn’t be more camp if Elton John sewed it himself.

Vetements Flame-Appliquéd Leather Boots


Vetements easily codes as camp due to its general disinterest in participating in the fashion cycle circus. These flaming boots are no exception.

Neighborhood Wide-Leg Printed Cotton-Corduroy Trousers


This ambiguous interpretation of camouflage pants is a woodsy and whimsical take on outdoor dressing.
