It seems as though layering patterns has become the new "black" in men’s fashion. Polka-dots with stripes, plaids with paisleys, flowers with checks – it’s all about the right pattern matched with the right color palette matched with the right fit matched with the right attitude. Trying this out with various tops (i.e. jackets and shirts) is a good way to go, but the easiest route to take for men would be button downs and ties.
