If you haven’t already guessed it, I’m a bit of a (really huge) sucker for menswear & mixed prints. So, the fact that a happy little combination of the two is one of the hottest fashion trends for fall/winter…well, it probably makes me happier than it should.
Here’s a cheat sheet of menswear patterns for you, courtesy of MenStyle Digest. Lots of helpful pictures.
Herringbone, houndstooth, pinstripe, glen check…names you never thought you should probably know. But, see how many points you score when you properly throw out one of these names like it ain’t no thang. Tell someone you like their “herringbone trousers” and watch them be not-so-secretly impressed (and probably slightly confused, but impressed nonetheless).
