Along with herringbone, houndstooth pattern is starting to make a bit of a resurgence, though I’ve got mixed feelings about this come-back, especially if, for some reason, pure houndstooth or herringbone sports jackets, much beloved of rich American schmucks and comedians, start creeping into style.
I doubt that they will, despite my suspicions that there’s already a couple of Nathan Barley types out there strutting around in them. Hopefully the design will only be utilised on a smaller and more tasteful scale, as is the case with these sweet Lakai Bradys (£49.95). Wear ‘em down with a pair of scruffy jeans; they’d also go great with a pair of neutral-tone slacks.
