Tattersall is a pattern featuring alternating grids that are interwoven into the cloth. They most often have one grid that is a darker color and one grid in a lighter color. Tattersall came into popularity in London around the 1770s and has been popular for a more sporty look. That being said, we find that tattersalls can be a great option for guys that want to add subtle pattern to their business shirt collection.
Tattersalls can be paired with most solid, striped, or patterned suits and ties. Consider going for medium-to-large scale patterns, though, as small patterns don’t look best when paired with a tattersall shirt.
