Hountstooth shirts contain the houndstooth pattern. The houndstooth pattern is broken or abstract checks. The colors commonly used for houndstooth is black and white, occasionally however other colors are substituted for the black or white.
The houndstooth check originally come to us from Scotland, it was used in their wool woven clothing and blankets. Today a variety of material is used to produce the houndstooth check pattern. It is also used on a variety of clothing including shirts, shorts, pants, skirts, handbags, and virtually any other clothing item.

Mens Houndstooth Dress Shirts
Since houndstooth shirts are patterned you will want to wear them with jeans or solid colored pants, khaki pants should be avoided with black and white houndstooth shirts as this outfit can clash.
Houndstooth shirts are sold online and many designer clothing shops. Black and white check will be the most popular color pairing, but the pattern of houndstooth that you can find is very diverse. Whether you are looking for an undershirt for a suit or just a nice shirt to go out to dinner in, houndstooth shirts are perfect attire.
For summer months it is my recommendation to wear houndstooth shirts that are made from a lightweight material like cotton or even seersucker. For winter or those cold fall nights, stick to heavier material like wool or even cashmere.
You can shop houndstooth shirts in stores and also online. Amazon.com and eBay both have great prices and stock a wide variety of shirts.
