Hi guys,

Just wondering if you approve of these checkered designs for smart/formal, to be worn with a tie? Pretty much a novice when it comes to checks (as well as stripes!!)...

First is a blue/light pinky check shirt...


Second blue check shirt...


Probably to be worn with a plain tie or perhaps with spots.

Thanks guys

Assuming you are being pretty liberal with the word formal, yes, those shirt could pair well with a jacket and tie. Solids are your best bet IMHO.
