Patterns: Houndstooth

This is a houndstooth dress shirt from Paul Fredrick.  I got it for $20 on clearance.  (If Paul Fredrick has a shirt--any shirt--on sale for $20 in my size, I almost always will buy it.)  You may have seen this type of print blown up large on women's coats in the past few years.  The pattern looks like a whole lot of Space Invaders to me.  You can also get such fabric on a suit, often in black-and-white, which can look sharp and give you a relatively neutral base to work with.  It's kind of a high-contrast look, though.
