Chris Kos’ Gingham Shirt

Today’s featured item in The Canvas is the men’s gingham shirt modeled by Chris Kos for our Real Style, Real Value photo shoot.

Though gingham, meaning “striped” in Malaysia and Indonesia where it is believed to have originated, can be found in a variety of bold colours, blue and white is the classic colour combination for this print and can work for a variety of occasions.

The Looks


A gingham shirt may not be the classic print for the office, but paired with the right trousers and accessories it’s all of a sudden the glue that keeps this look together. Wear it with sleek accessories such as the semi-rimless Persol 0PO2324V 896 Gunmetal glasses and show off your flare for fashion with a wool bow-tie.

Night Out

This bold print is perfect for a fun night out on the town. Match this gingham shirt with dark wash denim, a simple cotton v-neck and vintage inspired frames that feature a prominent brow line similar to the Derek Cardigan 7010 Smoke glasses.

Day at the Beach

Add a punch of colour to your beach attire with a blue and white gingham shirt. Wear it with a pair of classic cotton shorts, casual boat shoes and a pair of glossy black shades similar to the Maui Jim Maui Cat III Gloss Black Maui HT 209-02 sunglasses.


Throw on a gingham shirt and look stylish while running those errands. After all, you never know who you may bump into. To get this effortlessly cool look, pair this shirt with slim khaki pants, a classic white v-neck, luxe suede dessert boots and rectangle Ray-Ban RB5225 5036 Dark Avana Transparent Beige eyeglasses.
