There comes a time in every man's life to upgrade from a solid colored suit to a patterned suit. This plaid suit is a head turner as the pattern is very distinct. The secret to wearing a patterned suit is to pair it with a solid white shirt. A patterned shirt will clash with the pattern of your suit and create a very noisy outfit. This is one of the many times a white shirt makes sense so make sure you own more than one.

Looking for a pocket square that pops? Choose red. A classic suit often involves neutral colors like grey, black, white, and blue. Add some personality and include a bold red pocket square.
