If there’s a part of your wardrobe worth bulking up, it’s your tailored shirt options. You can wear the same khakis for 3 days straight and potentially have it go unnoticed, but the same cannot be said for your favorite OCBD. A few colorful solid options are a smart choice, but to really add visual interest to your work wardrobe, a few patterned shirts are worth the investment. Our first choice? A blue tattersall.

So what makes tattersall differ from your standard plaid shirt? Tattersall has regular, evenly spaced lines that run vertically and horizontally, resulting in a repeating square pattern. Very clean and geometric, tattersall is a great way to introduce visual interest to your work wardrobe.
