I just got this suit off of Ebay (I know the criticisms of Burberry that you sometimes see on this board, but I quite like their patterns and find the quality to be fairly good -- especially for $40 bucks. I'm hoping the condition is as good as is claimed). It looks like a gray suit with a subtle deep red/burgundy windowpane pattern. I actually don't own any windowpane suits, which is why I desired this one ($40 bucks for a Burberry seems like a good way to see how I like the style). I really don't know what to wear with the windowpane pattern other than a plain shirt. Would a checked shirt be too much? Is a pinstripe shirt out of the question? Also, does the red windowpane limit the range of colors that I can have in my shirt and/or tie? Thanks. I'm learning so much from the wise men here.
