When does something stop being a staple and start being just plain boring? If it's a menswear trend, it's when every man within a 50 mile radius is wearing it. And we've certainly reached that point with check shirts, which is why a small crop of designers have taken to sprucing up the pattern.
Swedish brand Velour have done with this shirt, which mixes stripe and check patterns. While on paper this sounds like an awful idea, it actually works rather well. Still, we hope this is as far as it goes. www.numbersixlondon.com
