Checkered menswear is heading to the forefront with 'Check it Out' in GQ Japan. This pattern-happy editorial was photographed by Alexi Lubormirski, who captured models Marlon Teixeira and Simon Nessman in the best of the season's patterned separates.

Implications - This editorial effectively showcases how classic and signature the plaid look really is. While some may call it old-fashioned, the 'Check it Out' editorial demonstrates how youthful, funky and hip plaid and checked ensembles can be in modern fashion. Your grandfather may also wear plaid, but I don't know if he looks this good!

Stylist Sean Spellman must have gotten dizzy while curating the fashions for GQ Japan's 'Check it Out' editorial, between the jumping models and patterned clothing. Check out the full photo set above.
