Get that dapper collegiate looks with these tailored tartan menswear looks. They are sure to turn any boy into a real man. Whether you call the textile plaid or tartan, these urban prepster collections transform the fabric with contemporary looks and provide the perfect ensemble for a fashionable gentleman.

The thicker fabric is very common in Fall collections, providing the perfect geek-chic form of menswear for academic types starting the school year.

So gentlemen, be adventurous! Try some of these tailored tartan menswear looks and do not shy away from attempting a pattern-clashing ensemble -- it just might suit you.
