Patterned shirts have become important to me lately. I believe it is because they evoke the essence of summertime. Lively, playful, relaxed, but eventful. Pairing a patterned shirt, and a suit is a great way to entertain the contrast usually produced by a suit and tie. Adding a charming tint of color, and texture, the playfulness of the patterned shirt tends to play down the seriousness of a suit when paired together, which makes for a great balance between casual, and formal.
