I’ve never been a fan of camouflage clothing but I had no idea it was illegal to wear in many countries until reader Karol sent me . It reads: “A number of Caribbean countries, such as Barbados, Jamaica, St. Vincent, Grenada, Dominica, and St. Lucia, ban the wearing of camouflage by non-members of their military. So unless you want to be fined, or jailed – leave those camo shirts, shorts, wallets, and purses at home.”
It turns out the Caribbean is not the only place it’s illegal (it’s also illegal in many African countries, for example). , and from an Antigua visitor on TripAdvisor. Without going too much further into it, I’m guessing there are other countries and places (, as well) with rules/laws against it, so do your research.
