hello everyone! This is minori, director of calm160.
Even if you usually choose plain items, there are times when you want to try something a little patterned. In such cases, a border pattern is recommended. Therefore, this time we will explain the border pattern recommended for 160 men.
What is a border pattern?
"Border pattern" refers to a horizontal striped pattern parallel to the ground. This is a relatively casual item and is a fabric pattern often used for tops.
A similar pattern is the "stripe pattern," but this one has vertical stripes. Unlike the border, this pattern is often used on dress-like shirts or incorporated into bottoms, so it's a good idea to keep in mind the difference.
Please be aware that if you coordinate your tops with a striped pattern and your bottoms with a striped pattern, your eyes will flicker, and people around you may not be able to look at you, so be careful.
160 Men's don't like borders?
It is true that border patterns are used for relatively casual items, so depending on what you choose, it can give a slightly childish impression. Therefore, border items are not often used in business settings. As I mentioned earlier, vertical striped patterns are preferable. However, for those who still want to wear not only plain items but also a border from time to time...I would like to tell you how to choose a border.
Impression given by border width size
In the first place, even if we simply say "border pattern," there are many different types, such as color combinations and border widths, and the impression it gives will also change.
What I would like to introduce this time is the width of the border . The impression changes considerably depending on the width, so it's a good idea to keep this in mind.
Look here. This is a comparison image of "narrow border" and "wide border". The color and size are exactly the same. However, I changed the width of the border. It's just this, but don't you feel that narrow borders look longer vertically and wider borders look wider horizontally?
Even if the border pattern is the same, our eyes can easily be tricked into thinking that a wider border will look more horizontally stretched.
The same applies to clothes as shown in this image. If you wear a top with a wide striped pattern, the width will somehow appear larger than your body size, and the vertical length will appear shorter.
160 Men's should be as narrow as possible.
So, if 160 men want to wear a striped pattern, we recommend choosing a narrow striped pattern. If you choose one that is as narrow as possible, it will create an optical illusion by making it look longer vertically, which will also improve your style. Also, although I didn't touch on color this time, as introduced in a previous magazine, choosing achromatic colors such as white, black, and gray creates a calmer impression than chromatic colors such as red, blue, and yellow. I'll give it to you. Choosing a border pattern with achromatic colors (black x white, gray x white, etc.) will create a casual and stylish look for adults.
How was it? It's really interesting how even a single pattern can look different due to an optical illusion. By changing the way you look, you can improve the style of your everyday coordination, so please keep this in mind.
