Any opportunity to channel your inner lumberjack and throw on a checkered number should be encouraged. I’m not a die-hard check fan, but every now and again there’s no harm.
It should, of course, be worn with caution and I would always live by a ‘one piece’ rule. Never double check. NEVER! I can just about cope with a double denim outfit, but that’s at a push as long as it’s done well. I worry that the sight of a double check look may just offend me on so many levels that it would completely shatter my restraint to shout fashion-fueled profanities. That’s a situation I never want to find myself in.
When styled correctly and the pattern is given the appropriate respect, it can make for a really classic and understated look. Whether you’re giving a gentle nod to your Scottish heritage, or you just simply love a glass of whisky on a weeknight so you basically qualify as an honorary Scot, it’s a great fashion choice to go for the check.
It's definitely going straight on my Christmas list, it's just a shame I'll have to wait so long!
