Although I'm not in the anti- paisley camp, I think that they are horrendous for shirts; certainly for mens' shirts.

After seeing A Harris' post, I had to rethink for 15 seconds. I suppose if they are to be worn like that, I could survive, but only if I would only see them once every couple of months.

oh man, these pictures remind me of a Tommy Hilfiger shirt I bought 2 years ago. It was on sale for $15 at TJ Maxx and I thought "Awesome! What a deal!"

Well, it's 2 years later and I've worn it, oh, zero times. In general I can pull of pretty wacky shit, but even this was too much for me. Too loud, even under a conservative sweater or blazer.

To the OP, be very honest with yourself if you can pull off paisley with your wardrobe. Otherwise you'll have a very colorful shirt decorating the back of your closet.

Agreed, I've bought some loud-ass shirts in the past that end up as very expensive closet decorations.

Paisely can be a cool pattern for ties and accessories - maybe you should start there and see how it matches up with your wardrobe.

Paisley reminds me of those Indian carpet rugs with the floral leaves and whatnot. It generally doesn't look good on white men.
Nice schtick...
Digging up rando old threads, and planting your racist flag.
It's what the ignore button was made for.
See ya, Borat.
