STYLE NOTES

3 ways to wear checks and stripes

Patterns and motifs can become the highlight of your style. For a contemporary look, play with checks and stripes, wearing them alone or in unique combinations.

For a look that is consistent, but impactful, go for a double-breasted suit in wool-silk-linen with this season’s iconic pattern: horizontal blue stripes. Pair with a lightweight shirt in a silk-cashmere blend, finishing off the outfit with a silk pocket square featuring contrasting polka dots and soft, three-tone calfskin loafers.
If you prefer cardigans to jackets or checks to stripes, we suggest the destructured but distinctive approach. Blue striped pants go well with a check button-down shirt and a cardigan with the same motif and contrasting borders. Tuck in the shirt and cardigan to up the formal quotient.
Mixing and matching results in a relaxed and extremely balanced look in terms of shapes and colors. The iconic, double-breasted dust coat gets a Springtime makeover in cotton and linen with barely-there chalkstripes, to be worn over a dual pattern sweater – checks on the front, solid in the back – and a pair of wool-silk-linen pants with more pronounced stripes.

 These are three different looks that evoke the sartorial spirit of Canali while meeting the ever-changing needs of the modern-day man.
