The checked shirt is a favourite with men who insist on comfort, but it can also be a classic item.
Depending on the size of the checks, it can go well with a classic look or a casual outfit.
Checked shirts: how to combine them?
Shirts in single-colour Vichy-type checks are elegant and can easily be paired with a formal suit and perhaps a solid-colour tie.

Linen tartan shirt
The tartan shirt (also known as "lumberjack") is made in thick but comfortable fabric. It's ideal for a sporty look and can be paired with jeans or even worn unbuttoned over a t-shirt. This type of shirt is better with a generous cut; slim-fit versions are best avoided.
Lastly, checked shirts also include the vintage-style houndstooth pattern, traditionally black and white, but now also in shades of pale blue. It goes well with jeans, but also with smart trousers or chinos.
