The herringbone pattern is a reliable midpoint between dressed up and dressed down. It’s the shared space in the overlapping circles of formal wear and business casual. Always a safe choice, the pattern stands out without being flashy, and shows you’re invested in your appearance, but not exclusively. Sure, it may only be your ankles, but since when did an attitude like that get you anywhere? Treat every part of you with respect, and every part of you will be respected.
