The allure and sophistication of men's suiting fabric has always fascinated me.  Pinstripe, houndstooth, herringbone, plaid, paisley, glen check, gingham, tartan... they're all fabulous patterns and look great on a classy guy sporting them, but my all time favourite is the pinstripe.  Pinstripes are usually synonymous with conservative menswear; politicians, bankers, business executives - they all wear them to appear serious, trustworthy and knowledgeable.  To their advantage, pinstripes are also very classy and sexy...certainly promoting the swagger effect...me... love!  Nothing sexier than a man in a pinstripe suit.

Pinstripe is a classic pattern, functional in fashion as in interior design.  It's a guaranteed unisex décor pleaser.  In home décor it has an elegant masculine effect that looks clean, crisp and ever so sophisticated.  Pinstripes are discreet and minimalist and are easy to match with any type of décor, either as focus or as accent.  They can provide movement and visual interest in any room. 

Pinstripes are by no means a new notion, but without fail, a trend just waiting for a big revival. Menswear patterns are classics that are meant to stand the test of time, so why not decorate with them too?

Masculine sophistication meets feminine glamour - a powerful union.
