The check print goes back way before the ’90s (yes, it predates the era of grunge and punk) and Burberry is perhaps the biggest fashion brand that made a name off of check. In the 1920s Burberry saw its brand breakthrough with the use of Scottish tartan sewn into coats with a beige base, accented with the colours black, red and white.

Checks (or plaid) would later find its way into the subversive punk subculture where it became a mainstay in high fashion labels like Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier.

The checked print has now found its way into the closets of many men and here are 7 ways you can level up your sartorial game.
