Have you ever thought about custom made shirts? The one you are currently wearing looks rather tent-ish

^True, it's an old RTW. It's actually going to become pockets on my next pair of cream flannels. I'm gradually phasing all my RTWs out as a make more shirts up, the trick is finding the time. I'm going to buy a buttonholer soon, which should knock 4 hours or so off each shirt.

By coincidence today I went for a five pattern bingo, including patterned strides ...

Nice, Duke. The tie and square are too close in color and pattern for me. But I like the way the tie brings out the overcheck in the pants. I think often success in patterned pants relies on tying together the top and bottom half somehow, as otherwise too much attention gets attracted to the pants on their own.

The thread is not just about how to incorporate really loud patterned pants, but also about how patterned pants can be better or at least a pleasing diversion from solid pants. Don't just ask what you can do for patterned pants, also ask what patterned pants can do for you.

Yes the blue overcheck (more visible if you open the pic in a new tab for supersize image) really make that outfit. I thought the trousers were good till I noticed it - then I thought they were great. Also pulls off the patterned trouser & patterned shirt mix successfully - I usually cop out and stick to a plain shirt.


I like the concept I've bolded; I guess I just automatically thought about loud patterns. I do like that specific look with the blue windowpane. I'm not sure I'd like it less without it, but it certainly is very well chosen. I am not so fond of some of the other examples shown, but they are very difficult things to manage well.

That is a nice patterned combination. Not too loud.
