To be well dressed you need at your disposal a sea of knowledge that helps you connect the past with the personal style you are trying to carve out in the present. Understanding menswear terms, enables you to quickly bring ideas together opening up your sartorial choices and keeping you one step ahead of the pack.

Appropriate for the fall/winter season, Challis is a lightweight wool fabric that traces its roots back to England (circa 1830) and works well for ties and pocket squares. Popular patterns include medallions and paisley (but other varieties can be found). A nice way to inject a shot of traditional into the contemporary wardrobe.
