what to wear with window pane jacket?

should i only go with solid colors? like the one below?

Nah, not with a pane of this width, which is almost a solid or neutral. I would go for a more densely striped shirt, though and definitely not a tattersall or anything having anything horizontal going on. Could probably even pair with a paisley tie, but that might be too much.

I think a lot of traditionalists would say solids, but I think it can be spiced up with a medium or small checked shirt. I kind of feel that nii, or spoo would do something interesting with it, playing with colors and mixing paterns. I think it has to look pretter deliberate to make it work, like an equally dandy pocket square, otherwise it will just look like you didn't know how to match it.

I have heard the opposite, but I feel that mixing patterns looks best when the width of the overall patterns are different. Like the wide panes with smaller checks. Whenever I see checks that are equal to the width of pinstripes to me it looks like an optical illusion.

Then I would stick to my second paragraph. Also i think bengal stripes would look good.

Perhaps a puppytooth, which has the virtue of not really being a pattern, but still adds a smidgen of interest.
