The New Gingham Shirt

The blue and white gingham shirt is a classic—one that can be worn with everything from white denim to wool trousers and unlined khaki blazers to charcoal suits. It's appropriate anytime of year, but looks particularly cool and crisp during the warmer months. And while they often feature button down or standard point collars, designers have recently cut the shirts in a range of spread collar styles, giving the all-American look a dose of British elegance.
