A University Stripe is a very popular style of dress shirt fabric featuring alternating even stripes slightly under 1/8″ in width. This is a timeless style that can easily be worn with a suit and tie in business settings. These stripes are almost always color and white, but occasionally you might see a color and color University Stripe.
You can pair University Stripes with a solid, striped, or patterned suit and tie. If you’re wearing a striped suit or tie with a University Striped shirt, go for something with a larger stripe–two smaller stripes together can be a bit too busy.
