I've never owned a gingham shirt before and know nothing about the pattern other than that I like it and I'd like to have a shirt in navy gingham.
I have a big neck and skinny body so buy all my shirts tailored from here Tailor-made shirts, chinos, polo shirts, underwear and accessories online.
They have two gingham looking navy and white fabrics but the checks are very different sizes. Can anyone recommend what I should be looking for in a good ginham and which of the following you think is better please?
Soure, navy shirt fabric Soure, navy
Pombal, navy shirt fabric Pombal, navy
Thanks in advance

I prefer finer gingham so the Pombal is the one I would go for.

I think finer gingham is easier to wear.

You guys are just reminding me I need to go to tailor with my Gingham! ): However, I also a agree, the fine is the way to go. Though, I just have to say I believe it is cheaper to buy your cloths not on that site and then bring it to your local tailor. It is usually under 20 dollars (£10) to get your shirts altered.
