HOW TO WEAR HERITAGE CHECKS FOR AW17
By Libby Banks, 22 September 2017
Windowpane check is another heritage stalwart ready for revival. Once favoured by the Duke of Windsor and Clark Gable for their Savile Row suits, you might have noticed that early adopters around the urban landscape are wearing it in a totally different way.
Windowpane works well if you want to smarten your 'fit up without looking too traditional – and it's the natural partner for a bold stripe. The trick is to keep your colours tonal, but play with proportions. So mix an oversized blazer with cropped slim-fit trousers. While a V-neck sweater layered over a zip-through top is the perfect way to update classic casuals styling.
To give this cult item an update for autumn, wear with tapered heritage check trousers, Reebok trainers and white tube socks. Tuck the hoodie in for a fresh take on normcore styling.
