Fashionable men should not overdo their use of pattern, a style guru has commented.
Ed Biado, writing for the Manila Standard Today, remarked that many men overuse both colour
, leading to a cluttered and mismatched look instead of the elegant coolness they may wish to exude.
Solids are safe, he commented and stripes, herringbones and other patterns
can be a good addition to an outfit but must be limited to avoid a style solecism.
Mr Biado added: "Stripes
, herringbones and argyle
are fine as long as they make it onto your outfit on their own ... For an added kick, match the patterns
of your tie and socks
Recently, a troubled fashion fan wrote to Men.Style.com asking whether he should match his socks
to his shirts for casual dress.
The publication suggested that socks
did not just have to be picked to match a shirt colour but could also be selected to match a jumper, a person's car or even their eyes.
