Amongst some of the more ubiquitous patterns out there, checks and stripes are a perennial favourite amongst designers due to their open-ended qualities, whereby each respective pattern is constantly open to reinterpretation, notwithstanding their established histories.

On one side, there exists a more formal and subtle camp of checks and stripes. Think preppy Breton stripes and the relaxed yet rigorous formality of the men at Pitti Uomo, dressed in checkered wool blazers or checkered suits. On the other, is its more riotous and youthful counterpart. This season’s check and stripe ensembles by Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, Comme des Garçons Homme Plus, Issey Miyake and more represents the latter camp, with silhouettes that reflect a more playful and exuberant quality.
