Stripes Have Gone to the Dark Side
There’s a reason why you can find striped clothes on shelves no matter what the trends are or what the weather is doing outside; they make every guy look more handsome and put together, without being particularly difficult to style. This winter we’re feeling thin navy and red stripes for work and beyond (but especially for work). Whether you’d describe your style as rocker, athletic, minimalist, or “hmm, not really sure” you can fold this pattern into your wardrobe with your eyes closed and still come out looking cooler. Here, 14 buys we endorse, in nautical stripes, pinstripes, and Mick Jagger stripes.
