Isaia made-tomeasure starting at $4,595

A few years ago, plaids like these might’ve seemed outrageous and daring. But right now? They’re wearable suits that’ll work with a tee, a turtleneck, or a tie. The move for 2016 is a classic menswear pattern in a fresh color combination whether you go muted (like Boglioli) or loud (like Dior, Isaia, and Paul Smith). Or, like actor James Ransone, pictured above wearing Dior Homme in the Fall issue of GQ Style, chose a palette that you don’t often seen in tailoring. We asked creative director Kris Van Assche about the inspiration behind his collection’s bold color theme. “The red and black symbolize the duality of the collection,” he tells us. “New-wave romanticism combined with the sporty easiness of skaters.” Here, check out six more of our favorite, most-gangster plaid suits of the season.
