Enduring Classic

Bengal Stripes

Bengal stripe fabric actually originates from the classic gingham weave, which was first woven and shipped from India's Bay of Bengal. And like its checked brethren, the shirting can come in varying gauges and color combinations, but it looks best in a simple blue and white. A graphic statement that helps you look leaner and taller, it's a timeless style—one that can be worn with everything from wool trousers to beat-up denim, unlined blazers or charcoal suits. And while you can find them in button-downs or point collars, look for one with a spread or cutaway collar for an of-the-moment interpretation of this enduring classic.
