You've mastered pinstripes and have a working knowledge of tattersall. This spring, raise your game by adopting a button-down shirt in gingham. Yes, gingham. Let go of any preconceived notions you may have about the breezy fabric (red-and-white pizzeria tablecloths, Dorothy's blue-and-white dress from The Wizard of Oz) and instead see it the way Bottega Veneta designer Tomas Maier does: as a remarkably masculine alternative to your daily shirt routine. For spring, Maier puts gingham on double duty, applying a slightly abstract version to a tie and then pairing that with a traditionally patterned shirt in the same color. The tone-on-tone coupling will have you seeing gingham in a new way as well as questioning all your more conventional shirt-and-tie combos. Courtney Colavita
