I think a wide (5/8-1") mid-dark grey chalkstripe looks smashing in DB and consider it a staple. The others would look great too. I personally like plaids and windowpanes in SB and chalkstripes in DB, though I do cross over.

Presently, I like nail head with a windowpane. Like blue windowpane on grey nail head. Not hard to find in cloth sample books.

Tomasso: Do you just have these photos ready in case someone asks about a certain piece of clothing, or do you just find it necessary to show parts of your collection at random?

The thread title made me titter a bit. No pun intended.

I agree about the chalkstripes, and about preferring windowpanes in SB. Both DB and windowpanes are relatively uncommon these days, and combining them only heightens the effect.

(Of course, who am I to talk .... My latest infatuation is the three-piece in windowpane.)
