The use of monochromatic patterns is the essence of tailoring. Plain colors can be worn in nearly every circumstance. In addition to changing the tone, is the inner weave of the fabric that creates its own subtle strength, like for twill weaves. Solid colors are the basis for excellence: bright colors take the role of macro checks for the day-time garments, dark shades are perfect for the evening and the ceremony.
It is a distinctive V-shaped weaving pattern usually found in twill fabric. It is distinguished from a plain chevron by the break at reversal, which makes it resemble a broken zigzag. The pattern is called herringbone because it resembles the skeleton of a herring fish and is one of the most popular cloths used for suits and outerwear. Typically, the suits will come in dark colors such as black, charcoal grey and navy blue for formal and business purposes, but it is also perfect for a classic ceremony.
It is a timeless classic. The fabric is made with an open weave, and usually with a herringbone pattern. The cloth’s warp is beige in colour, with a red weft to reflect sunrays away, making for an excellent summertime fabric. Solaro is a sort of chameleon, changing its colour depending on the strength and direction of light source. Shades of beige, green and red combine to form a unique colour. It is not conceived for a very formal end result, it works best in casual offices, as leisurewear.
The pinstriped suit is a must in the classic men's formal day wear, and it has become especially associated with a conservative business attire. This pattern can be divided into two styles: the classic pinstripe with thin stripes and the chalkstripe, with wider stripes. Its vertical lines are mostly in contrast with the background.
Between solids and stripes in formality is bird’s eye or nailhead, which examined closely has the appearance of tiny dots of a lighter color on a darker background, resembling a little bird’s eye. A bird’s eye suit generally appears similar to the effect of an Oxford cloth shirt.
Checks come in a number of different styles and colors, as micro checks or windowpane, a much more bold option where the stripes forming the check are far apart, creating a checkerboard effect. Checks are ideal for day-wear garments with a strong contemporary taste.
Prince of wales check
Often called glen check, is the iconic English pattern for excellence. It ensembles a tartan, though it is primarily monochromatic. It utilizes bands of vertical and horizontal stripes which, when viewed as a unit, create a wider check effect in the fabric.
