Absolutely. In addition to the usual suspects of dark grey or black glen plaid check on a lighter grey background with no overcheck, blue overcheck and brick red overcheck, I also have suits with:
- Dark navy glen plaid check on air force blue background with red overcheck;
- Dark brown glen plaid check on mid-brown background; and
- Dark brown and cream glen plaid check on light brown background with blue overcheck.

Yes, absolutely. I also have a very pale grey linen jacket with a large-scale glen plaid check and it looks great with a pair of navy cotton trousers in summer.
