Mad about plaid! Gingham, madras, windowpane, oh my :)

Seeing this great outfit in The Sartorialist (Prada, Milano) got me thinking about plaid.

Specifically it got me thinking about all the various types of plaid there are. I know alot of them, but for a great list, I turn you over to Alexander West’s site is a run down of the various patterns in men’s shirts (and suits, for that matter): Know your shirt fabric patterns | A Shirt Style Guide.

Now that summer is coming, the Madras plaid will be everywhere in men’s wear. But this windowpane plaid in this photo looks great too.

P.S. Glen plaid is short for Glen Urquhart plaid, the place where it came from.
