Depends how dark/defined the lines are.If dark and well defined it becomes to a large extent a "country" shirt to wear with a tweed sport coat and wool knit tie - or similar - like a Tattersall.If a faint line that is indistinguishable unless up close then its just like any other shirt depending on the ground colour.
