Can’t resist: Lumberjack checks

lumberjack main

Who doesn’t love a lumberjack check? There is something so undeniably cool about the check. It is the perfect at play look, and we can’t get enough of it. Be it lumberjack check shirts, jackets or even jacket linings, we have become obsessed with those little coloured squares.

You feel stylish when you wear a lumberjack check, why is that? Perhaps, because it’s the answer to a casual night out or daytime look. Or maybe it’s because all the fashionable celebs wear it, or even that it looks hot on girls as well. Who knows? It just works.

Yes, we have an ongoing love affair which doesn’t look set to end soon. But how do you wear the lumberjack we hear you cry?

Well, it’s easy, take one pair of jeans, any pair will do, a pair of shoes, can be formal or trainer, then throw on a motif tee and layer with your lumberjack. It really is that simple. What’s more it’s going to be hanging around for a while, so you can buy now and wear right through until spring. Oh how we love you lumberjack check… can we pull off a deerstalker? Maybe that’s a step too far.
