Guys, there’s no escaping the fact that we’re fully in the throes of fall. There’s a definite chill in the air. Shorts are officially in storage (if you’re organized like that). Your jeans, khakis, and corduroys are back in full rotation. But what should you be wearing on top? We have the answers – that also happen to be totally in right now.
Let’s go back. Way, way back. To a time before Seattle grunge and even before the Brawny Man. Okay, we’re there. Look around. See that? Guys are wearing plaid. Guys have always been wearing plaid. Plaid is a bona fide classic. And as any guy even barely hip to today’s menswear scene knows, tradition is having a serious moment.
So now that you’ve realized you can’t live without a plaid shirt (or ninety), let’s talk about how you wear it. Because though tossing one on by itself is easy stuff – and perfectly fine – you can do better than that.
