I ended Wednesday's post with a question about "checked" versus "plaid". So, I looked it up. Checked is a pattern of squares. Plaid consists of crossing bands or stripes of color. According to those definitions, this guy would be wearing a cool skinny plaid tie and holding a unique plaid phone -
Now is this next guy wearing a checked or plaid shirt?
I'm leaning toward plaid. But whatever it is, I love this bold combination with the argyle (just to throw in another pattern) sweater vest.
