Now that you mention it and I look closer, it's not a true glenplaid, just windowpane with some, I dunno, micro houndstooth in the field. Certainly looks glenplaid when you first glance at it from a distance. So call it dub plaid/trip windopane, dub stripe.

nice fit clags.

i like the use of using a PS as a matching pattern. its small and unobtrusive enough that i think it can still be tasteful. sucks for me lol.

Subscribed and will post a fit tomorrow. Good idea for a challenge.

x-post WAYWRN - Figure skating has the triple axel - this challenge has the sextuple stripes, as below. Hairline striped shirt, striped suit, tie, braces, cufflinks, and socks.

Tried out a few combinations for the challenge but didn't really like any of them so instead settled for a partial match with the (reddish) checks on both the shirt & jacket. Up to AAS whether it's a close enough similarity to qualify... and to the wider audience whether it hews closely enough to the rules to garner any votes! laugh.gif

Close-ups on shirt and tie to prove there are stripes and give a better sense of the color.
