Patterns Worth Knowing

“Why bother with bright colors and eccentric patterns,” they’ll say. “It only adds busyness to your already busy life,” they’ll advise. I get it, and to each their own. But here at FashionMR we cling to the notion that we all have one life to live and that it should be a blast. So lets embrace new patterns and colors that aren’t considered “safe” or “easy.”

Gingham
Reminiscent of a classic picnic table cover, the Gingham is a rather trending shirt pattern. Found in a variety of bright colors, this pattern is perfect for many occasions. And the bright colors make this perfect for adding some modern splash to any outfit. If you’re looking to add some colorful changes to your setup, I suggest you start with these patterns.

Tartan
The term itself might not be familiar, but the pattern definitely is. Popular in kilt form and as a Burberry pattern, this pattern isn’t as easy to match as the Gingham. Since most Tartan patterns come with multiple colors, if you plan on finding a color to match with, commit to one color. Your outfit will just look cluttered and busy if you try to match with all the colors.

Dots
Dot or polka dot pattern is a minimalistic and classy design. Commonly found in shirts and ties, the size of the dots vary as well. For a more subtle, sophisticated look, the smaller dots are highly recommended. Much like the Gingham pattern, dots are fun to work with. If you prefer traditional and safe colors like black and navy, a shirt with a white dot pattern can add a tasteful amount of flair.

Paisley
This next pattern has been around the block and back. And with men’s high end fashion being on the rise, I doubt that it’ll be fading away anytime soon. Quite bold and eccentric in design, the paisley pattern always seems to be saying, “Hey look at me!” When wearing Paisley, try to wear it with solid and darker colors. Doing so will add a bit of contrast to your outfit.

Herringbone
Herringbone, much like paisley, is another pattern that keeps returning to the limelight time and time again. A timeless design such as this, deserves a place on our list. Common with shirt, suits, jackets and ties, the Herringbone pattern.

Gingham Shirts by Twillory

Whether you’re a cubicle creature, a king of the hill or a window office executive, a nice clean shirt is a staple in your wardrobe. In the meeting room, a sit-down with clients or social gatherings, a form fitting shirt could make or break any situation. And even if you are stylishly oblivious, you might’ve noticed that the shirt pattern that looks oddly familiar to a traditional picnic table cover is trending. Because of this, the shirt game is saturated with brands that carry this style. First off, if you’ve been calling it the “picnic table pattern”, lets start off by calling the shirt design by its rightful name, “gingham”.

Twillory follows this same design trend with a collection of gingham shirts; with spread and button-down collar options (for more info on collars). Made in five colors, all the shirts ooze quality and an attention to detail. Any brand can stitch similar fabrics together and sell it for competitive prices. But the gingham shirts from Twillory, give the feeling that you are getting more than what you paid for.

The fabric is hardy yet smooth and it feels like the shirt can handle many washes and battles with the iron. At a 120 cloth count, it is tightly woven. Also, the cuffs provide an extra bit of adjustability with another set of buttons. Up front, the shirt is adorned with mother of pearl buttons; commonly found in high-end shirts. And remember that “attention to detail” feel mentioned earlier, well the spread collars come with steel collar stays.

For $79, it is rather affordable for what it offers. But, be sure to know your measurements. An individual with a small body frame might find a medium, loose fitting for a tailored fit. Find them at Twillory.
