    Alexander West Style Guide:  Stripes or Checks?

    A few fabric pattern guidelines to keep in mind when choosing stripe and check shirts:

    1.  Shirts become more CASUAL as the number of colors increase

    2.  Small checks and thin stripes will be more FORMAL compared to big checks and thick stripes
