Checks aren’t new to any wardrobe. In fact, they form an essential and unmistakable staple in every man’s collection. Affordable, durable, and smart, with checks you can never go wrong. There is so much that can be done with the pattern itself.
Here are some of our favourite check shirts from the BSC collection to own this season:
1. TARTAN CHECKS
Originated from Scotland, this pattern is made by crisscrossing multiple horizontal and vertical bands. New colours are created where different colours overlap. A classic pattern that brings tradition and style together. So, if you’re the one to stay true to the time - honoured style and yet make your mark in the crowd, go for our Pear tartan checks or the Scottish tartan checks from the BSC collection.
2. TATTERSALL CHECKS
The popular and ultra stylish Tattersall checks are made by crisscrossing a horizontal stripe with thin even vertical stripes resulting in perfect squares. It consists of different coloured lines on a lighter background. A Tattersall check shirt is perfect for casual weekends. Pair one of our Charles Tattersall shirts with shorts and loafers and step out in style for an evening barbecue party.
3. GINGHAM CHECKS
A favourite in men’s wardrobe, Gingham is a two-toned pattern, most popularly sewn in blue and white or red and white. It’s a yarn dyed cotton or linen fabric. The yarn is first dyed and then woven. Affordable, durable, and light-weight, the BSC collection flaunts blue, oak, Thomas Mason vintage, Roseate Dress and more gingham check shirts to upgrade your wardrobe.
4. PLAID CHECKS
Very similar to Tartan checks, plaid is formed by crisscrossing lines of varying widths in one, two, or three colours. In plaids, the pattern of the vertical stripe does not necessarily have to match the pattern of horizontal stripe like the pattern of the tartan. Our Glen plaid check shirts are truly a gentleman’s outfit and perfect for formal occasions.
5. JAPANESE CHECKS
Made of 100% cotton and woven in Twill, our brand new and distinct collection of Japanese Brushed Check shirts are soft, heavier, and drape very well on the body. The fabric is distinguished by its texture that gives a brushed feel and is perfect for both formal and casual arrangements. Besides the classic black and grey checks, the BSC offers a range of handpicked Japanese checks in combinations of olive and blue, cream and grey, and blue and white checks.
