Cheery, colourful and confident – this uplifting checked shirt is ready for summer
From gingham to tartan, our love affair with checks knows no bounds. My personal favourite is the Madras check, a 150-year-old pattern applied to a fabric that came over from, you guessed it, Madras (now Chennai), India, in the late 1600s. Usually bright, the check is irregular and bold, making it quite the statement, so pair with a plain, darker colour. It’s also perfect for achieving a put-together preppy look, with the button-down collar adding a more grown-up counterpoint to the playful tones. And who doesn’t need a little spice in their life?
