How To Wear Vintage Checked Shirts

A check shirt is a classic piece for any man's wardrobe. They're versatile, easy to wear, and can be worn on any occasion.

It is hard to go wrong with a check shirt because you can match them with almost anything: jeans, chinos and even a suit! A vintage chequered shirt is also an easy way to add some colour to your outfit without worrying about it clashing with anything else you're wearing.


The Classic Red And Black Check Shirt

The classic Red and Black check shirt is a staple of punk fashion, but with its clean lines and versatility, it's an excellent choice for the connoisseur of all things classic. This shirt can be worn on any occasion, from casual to formal, making it a perfect addition to your wardrobe.

We recommend pairing your red and black chequered shirt with a suit for those looking to add some flair to their outfit. Try layering over a t-shirt or tank top with jeans or khakis for something more casual. If you're dressing up for an important event or want to show off your unique style, pairing this shirt with a tuxedo will give you an "I don't care what anyone thinks" look while remaining sophisticated. 

Summer Vintage Chequered Shirts

Check shirts are best worn in the summer because they're so lightweight. The short sleeves make it easy to show off your tattoos, and the bold patterns make you look like a total badass. If you're going for an even more casual vibe, try pairing your favourite chequered shirt with sandals, jeans and a t-shirt. For something more formal (for example, during summer weddings), pair it with stylish loafers or boots and a collared shirt underneath. A tie is optional but never discouraged!

Rock Your Aesthetics Through The Summer

Seasonal trends are great, but sometimes you need to find ways to make your wardrobe work for you all year long. Chequered shirts are a great way to add some colour and texture to your outfit, no matter what the weather is doing outside. Check shirts are easy to wear with almost anything, making them perfect for summer or winter—or any season between! 

Check shirts come in many different styles like plaid and can be worn with any type of pants (jeans or shorts). They're also relatively affordable—you'll find them at high-end stores and budget retailers alike.

Tartan Check Shirt

Tartan is a pattern of interlocking stripes. It's been around for centuries and is the most traditional of checks, originating in Scotland. The name comes from "tartan", an old Gaelic word for woven cloth. Tartan fabric was originally only made in one colourway but now can be found in any number of colour combinations and patterns. For example, Robert Graham's Classic Check has red and white stripes on a blue ground; Ben Sherman uses green and tan tartans as its background for navy and white blocks; J Crew features plaids with subtle stripes that are narrower than their neighbours. The versatility of tartan means it can easily be worn with anything from jeans to khakis to chinos, depending on your mood or occasion.

Wear Your Vintage Chequered Shirts With Style Anytime

Check shirts are classic, versatile and always look good with a boating blazer. They are a staple in any man's wardrobe and an excellent option for casual and formal wear. It's a great way to give your look some contrast without going overboard, making them a perfect choice if you want to create an outfit that stands out from the crowd.
