Fashion trends are interesting to us—not because we care to follow them, but because (a) they obviously impact what is available to us as clothing consumers and (b) they bring us so much joy when we mock them in retrospect. This spring's most obvious trend is already kind of funny because of its specificity: we're talking about basically one shirt. Sure, there are variations on what you see in the Superdry model shown here, but damn near everyone makes a shirt with at least 4 out of the following 6 elements: Madras plaid or oversized gingham, two diagonal pattern chest pockets, small button-down collar, short or roll-tab sleeves, curved but short hem designed to wear untucked, western-style yoke. Should you buy one? Seems harmless enough, as long as you aren't looking to stand out.
