Feel free to take your Burberry trench coat out of the trash can. This plaid is acceptable.
However, it should still be used in moderation, as in the underside of your umbrella, or a peek of plaid on the collar of your polo shirt.
Still throw out your solid plaid jacket, but you can keep your plaid socks.
And if you spray Burberry Brit anywhere near us, you can stick it anywhere. Talk. To. Us.
