Anyone who finds women's fashion formulaic should take a look at what men are wearing. Maybe it's some dudely version of the Vulcan mind meld, but fellas often seem to decide, en masse
, to all wear the exact same thing for a year. And then, they switch (if they're fancy). Last year, it was the yacht-club-wannabe boat shoe. This year, it's this navy blue. J.Crew gingham shirt
. And, it's like the first time you figure out who Steve Buscemi is — once you've noticed it, you'll see it everywhere
Of course, we have to give credit to the Instagram that brought this phenomenon to our attention: the helpfully titled That J.Crew Gingham Shirt
. It's dedicated to chronicling each and every appearance that
shirt makes, wherever, and on whomever it may pop up. It's kind of like Humans Of New York, only for a shirt you're super sick of seeing on your guy friends.
Click ahead for proof that you're not hallucinating clones — it's just yet another man in gingham. (The Cut
