I like these chevron-pattern shirts...

I do not know the correct term for the red-circled pattern (I call it chevron)...

If you'll forgive a few random thoughts on the topic, as the question's already been answered...

 

I used to have a few herringbone shirts; they can look very pretty. The problem I found is that the herringbone weaves can create quite a strong visual impact, making it difficult to match a jacket and tie to the shirts (unless you go solid and fairly untextured for both). I didn't like that constraint on my jacket and tie choices, so I don't get herringbone shirts any more (in fact, I don't really like shirts with any really pronounced weave. End-on-end is as crazy as I go in terms of shirt weave; I prefer colours/patterns to add interest where desired instead). There are some fainter/less-pronounced ones around that minimise this issue, but never entirely.  Still, if you love the weave, it's probably worth getting a shirt or two and see how they practically work for you.
