In the January 2010 issue of Esquire, we are treated to an article titled "Gentlemen, May We Introduce You to the Shirt & Tie?" Not a bad piece, but on p. 105 we are shown a photo to illustrate how to "pin down your patterns." They say: But ... the photo they use to illustrate their point shows exactly the opposite! The shirt stripes have exactly as much space between them as do the dots on the tie. The scales are exactly the same! Alan Flusser's pattern matching theory is confirmed by the photo. That is, when matching two different patterns, one wants to match the scales unless both patterns are small, in which case we want difference. By the way, I love matching stripes with dots in exactly the manner illustrated in that photograph. So are you going to believe Esqure or are you going to believe your eyes?
