A men’s check or gingham shirt is a timeless wardrobe item – it’s a style that’s versatile, often colourful and always being reinvented in new ways. The benefit of a check shirt is that it can be incorporated into many outfits with ease. It’s a simple way to bring colour to your overall look and it offers a dynamic or interesting element to an otherwise plain outfit. A check shirt can tick many outfit and occasion boxes, but how do you style a checked shirt? It can be dressed up with a suit and tie with ease, making it a popular choice for those who work a corporate job in an office. If you plan on wearing a checked shirt as part of your office outfit, consider matching your tie to a share within the checked pattern. A check shirt can also be worn open casually over a t-shirt with a pair of jeans and sneakers for a quick and easy put-together outfit on the weekend. Our range of check shirts offers easy-wearing fabrics that are simple to care for and work effortlessly with other items in your wardrobe—think cotton and cotton blends available in a wide range of colourways and patterns. You could make a statement with a bold check pattern in a navy or green mix, or, if you’d like to achieve a more formal look, try pairing a dark-coloured check shirt with some chinos and boots—pop a woollen jacket on to complete the look if the weather is cool. A thicker-style checked shirt makes for a great winter wardrobe staple. Check is such a versatile pattern that you can even wear it in a pared-back fashion, for instance, choosing a check shirt with fine lines on a white or pastel fabric is understated yet stylish. And how about deciding what pants to wear with a check shirt? Think about balancing the colour and pattern of your shirt with a pair of plain pants. Alternatively, opt for denim jeans in a wash of your choice, a pair of dark or light-coloured chinos or travel pants that complement a shade in the check shirt’s pattern. Whether your personal style leans towards bright and bold colours or you prefer to look neutral and understated, a checked shirt is a great addition to any wardrobe across all seasons.
