How to wear checked jackets this summer
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT
When it comes to stand-out men’s suits, a bold check makes a real statement. As a jacket, an eye-catching checked pattern lifts a look – and works with casualwear just as well as with smart ensembles. Scabal’s new range of bold checks are just the thing to add a dash of showmanship to a gentleman’s wardrobe.
CHECKS AND BALANCES
The secret to check success is balance. The simplest way to make a statement pattern work is to pair it with something plain like a checked sports jacket twinned with neutral chinos, say.
WHEN TO WEAR
As with any look-at-me statement piece, bold checks are best used sparingly and sported with absolute confidence. Though heavier plaid styles are synonymous with the colder months, there are checked styles – gingham, houndstooth, glenchecks – to suit all year round, for both formal and informal occasions.
