World's Best Graph Paper Shirt


I apologize that the photograph is a bit blurry, but I think you get the idea.. this is the most awesome graph paper shirt in the world.

A windowpane check IS the best graph paper shirt! actually after your previous post about graph-paper shirst I realized that when I buy button-down shirts for my husband, I almost ALWAYS buy some sort of checked shirt! And I prefer graph paper notebooks and pads...

I also own a [girlfriend-approved] graph paper shirt which I wear from time to time. But it's rotated 45 degrees, so I'd have to be leaning over to use it as graph paper. Maybe that's because Computer Science isn't a real science.

Hey,

Just a clarification-Does anything with a checked pattern qualify as "graph-paper" or does it have to have dark lines on a light background? I must admit I do all my clothes shopping at the PTA Thriftshop. However, I tend not to get shirts that remind me two much of the plaids that dominated my wardrobe during gradeschool. I went through a Hawaiian shirt phase but nice examples have become more difficult to find.

There's a fine line between plaid and a graph paper shirt, but it's there. I know it when I see it.

Ah, memories. My advisor wore nothing but graph paper shirts and khaki pants.

If he had to dress up, he put a navy blazer over the graph paper shirt.

Hmmm... I own a shirt like that, but the lines in between vary in thickness just by a little bit. It's also rather comfortable and the closest I could get to a decent looking monotone white shirt.

I would buy more monotone shirts if good ones were available from the local Discount Warehouse (which is good for everything except formal wear). I suppose the next time I go to buy a suit, maybe I should take a look at stores that sell regularly priced stuff.

One of my friends while I was at school wore those kinds of shirts a lot. He used to get annoyed with me because I kept trying to play Squares on them, but really, what else are you meant to do with them?!

My dad (not a scientist) always wore these, so I can't handle it when my boyfriend (also a scientist) even considers trying one on in a store. It's just too weird for me.

Fortunately the boyfriend looks good in everything and has really good taste, so it's an unusually good graph paper shirt if he's even considering it.
