READING BETWEEN THE LINES

Shirt patterns for spring

Shirt fabrics that once featured wide-opened expanses of background color between the patterns are now reading between the lines. The latest of shirt collections achieve an airy effect not so much from the usual expanse of white ground, but from the lightness of the lines that criss-cross it. You’ll note the fine lines grouped into clusters and the accent stripes in subtle neutral tones that seem to pick up whatever color suit or tie is worn with them.

Instead of solid stripes in a single color on a solid ground, note the selection of multi-dimensional stripes and multi-hued checks. Such elements add an architectural sophistication to your wardrobe.
