    I've seen a photo of a Tommy Nutter suit with closely-spaced horizontal stripes - not bad, but I think I'd prefer a windowpane check instead. Versace did some diagonally-striped suits a while back: [​IMG]
    Tommy Nutter made a horizontal pin striped suit for Elton John - with the stripes picked out with bugle beads . . .

    I saw one in the Marurice Sedwell shop a couple years ago. Looked gimmicky even in the window.

    I've seen corduroy pants with horizontal wale. Cool. Different.


    I own a plaid corduroy jacket, a tie with wide horizontal stripes (which I have worn with a bengal-stripe OCBD [vertical stripes]) and I would also wear horizontally striped corduroy. I draw the line at horizontal stripes on a suit and I don't think I'd wear a dress shirt with horizontal stripes either. It's OK for more casual wear, but not with a suit.

    The MASH episode was great, as many are.

    Ha, I was just thinking of that. Trapper is crowing throughout the episode to Hawkeye about the great deal he's getting having a suit made (don't recall if they actually use the word "bespoke", but probably not) by a local Korean tailor out of beautiful pinstriped cloth he picked up somewhere. In the final scene, the suit is delivered -- with the pinstripes running horizontally.

    I remember a few traditional shirt makers had these in the 80's to wear along with an otherwise classic suit. The stripes were horizontal on the body and vertical on the collar. Darker color stripes like navy were a little too strong and looked odd except when paired with a white collar and cuffs. But, lighter colors, like a pink/white stripe, looked rather nice when paired with a great tie.

    I remember Elton John was on Leno about a year ago, he had on a Pinstripe suit, except some of the pinstripes started going all over the place around one shoulder only. It resembled strings unraveling, although the rest of the suit had straight pinstripes. I thought it was spectacular. Anyone heard of who makes this?

    For horizontal, there was an early M*A*S*H show that had Hawkeye and Trapper going to Tokyo or Seoul for R&R and ordering suits from a cheap tailor-- then finding out the hard way that he liked horizontal chalk stripes.

    in the series mash there was an episode about a local tailor who made a suit with horizontal stripes.

    does nobody read threads anymore?

    So there was this episode of M*A*S*H, where this guy was unnervingly fond of horizontally striped suitings.. come to find out, Joel_Cairo has a vagina.

    Yes, thus my use of the phrase "of that" to refer back to the globe's post, quoted immediately above. [​IMG] [​IMG]
