Stripes are a critical part of a classic aesthetic. They can brighten and sharpen a wardrobe. White stripes can make great colors even better, and even make moderate colors acceptable. As with most classic attire, they can be dressed up or dressed down.
Here are a few thoughts:
- In more egalitarian styles, there usually should be only two colors. One color should be white, with the exception of the following pairs: pink and green, navy and pink, and blue and green.
- For "old school" items such as Repp Ties, University Scarves, Cricket Sweaters, Braces, etc, three colors can work;. when they do, the stripes tend to be vertical, or angled.
- Stripes should only be used with classic styles, including rugby shirts, jacket linings, crew neck sweaters, oxford shirts, polo shirts, and the occasional T-shirt.
- If you are unsure, the stripes should be of the same width.
