It’s difficult to find a well cut gingham shirt that hasn’t completely drifted into the realm of casual. You’ll want a shirt that you can wear with jeans as well as a nicer pair of chinos. A shirt that would fit in at home as well as at work. Like a 1MX with checks. The GAP Tailored Gingham shirt is one of the few that hits all those points, but it’s a little pricey.
An in-person fitting found that the sides really are tailored. It’s just not lip or label service, it really is nice and trim at the sides. Same with the circumference of the sleeves. No extra poofy cloth at the triceps. The check is neither too big or too small size. The collar is sustained by stays, making this a shirt that could work for… work. But the tail is too long to wear untucked. It’s either tuck it in, or take it to the tailor.
Beware the colors as well. It’s not a white and blue gingham, but instead a North Carolina light blue under a medium navy. That’s going to be a nice bit of variety for some, but a detail that won’t fly for others.
If they’d expand the color selection, cut the tail by about two inches, and drop the price about $10? Then I’d take one in every color.
