The classic pattern in the menswear, a simple geometrical line – stripes have been in the industry since the medieval times where it was stereotyped as a statement for prisoners, workers or criminals. Only later, Queen Victoria of England dressed up her son in stripes for a Royal Yacht event and white and navy stripes came to be associated with everything nautical. With the pattern becoming a statement for a variety of orientations such as suits and shirts, stripes now are also a part of the accessories, bottom wear and the headgear family.
Also known as seersucker, this stripe is a thin, puckered, all-cotton fabric used for making spring/summer wear. With a wrinkled appearance at some places, the fabric is produced in a variety of colors resembling milk and sugar for its smooth and bumpy texture respectively.
A pattern of narrow white stripes alternated with that of another color typically pink, this fabric is mostly used for shirts and sportswear. Distributed as equitable, the white background and another color run along duplicating a candy cane.
Typically used for shirt fabrics, this two-color vertical pattern is distributed equally and is narrower than candy stripes commonly done in white and another color. The fabric is shipped to the world markets from Bengal, India.
Resembling tailor’s chalk lines, this pattern once restricted to white and off-white color now is of any color and is wider in general referring to both size and style. Typically used in men’s suit fabrics, this is never described in shirt fabrics.
Being relatively thin with spacing between them rarely exceeding 5/8″, the pinstripes are named so as they are both thin and small. The pattern is used to describe both shirt and suit fabrics and is equivalent to the width of a pin.
