Vertical stripe shirts has seen a resurgence in menswear in recent years. Stripes, as a style has been around for some time, in some form, such as smart button-up pinstripe shirts and casual nautical horizontal stripe tees.
The biggest change, however, is in men’s casualwear, moving from the horizontal stripe to the vertical, often with thicker lines and a greater variation in line thickness. The prime example of this is casual, collared shirts, most notably cuban stripe shirt with its relaxed wide collar has become a major fashion trend over the last couple of years.
Vertical stripes are much more flattering to horizontal too. While horizontal stripes will make a man seem noticeably wider, vertical stripes will have the opposite effect. With the right up-and-down pattern an optical illusion is created, lengthening your torso and making you appear taller.
