Today's trends mean an old-school look is getting a modern makeover.

Thanks to the sartorial shenanigans of a few of our favourite "Mad Men," the plaid suit is once again a smart option for sharp dressers.

Done right, modern check suiting has a vintage elegance to it that is both contemporary and traditional. Done wrong, it looks like you raided your grandfather's closet.

We wouldn't want you to look like an octogenarian (though we're sure your grandfather was a stylish guy in his day), so we've put together an inspiration guide to check suiting that'll set you on the right path.

This is how it's done, gentlemen.
