After stocking up on the staple solid dress shirts that every man should own, it’s time to freshen things up with a sharp, well-tailored piece in an interesting pattern. Italian designer label Brioni offers you exactly what you need with their gingham check cotton shirt. The white-blue checkered pattern is extremely versatile, lending itself nicely to both casual and formal looks.
Your go-to combination with this shirt should be your timeless navy blazer, with the two offering you a great starting point for many different outfits. You can easily sneak the shirt into your business dress shirts rotation, again with a navy suit and brown Derby shoes.
For a more business-casual look, swap your silk tie for a thick navy knit one and go all out with a flashy, patterned pocket square. This classic ensemble gives you room to experiment with your accessories, and the blue gingham helps strike the perfect balance between muted and playful. The refined pattern allows you to practice the ‘two out of three patterns’ rule without the risk of appearing over the top.
This Brioni shirt is equally suitable for a relaxed, casual look and can be combined with just about anything. It is perfect for those days where you feel like dressing down but still want to look your absolute best – easily achieved by pairing the blue gingham pattern with khaki chinos and your favorite leather belt.
The button-down collar, curved hem, attention to detail and high quality make the garment a worthwhile investment piece that can anchor a variety of different outfits and combinations.
Brioni’s luxury shirt is made of high quality 100% cotton and retails at £250 over at Mr Porter.
