Glen Plaid Fabric Pattern


It’s typically a bolder dress shirt pattern and great for those who want something that makes more of a statement–to be avoided if you’re looking for an interview shirt. It is most commonly done in a broadcloth construction.

We suggest pairing a glen plaid shirt with a solid suit and tie in most cases. Glen Plaids are one of the boldest patterns, so keeping the rest of your outfit toned down will keep you from looking too aggressive.
