Anyone else here a paisley fanatic?

WSO, I must confess, for I have sinned: I just fucking love paisley, I can't get enough of it.
Everybody tells me, "Matchie, you're bonkers, nobody wears paisley anymore, not since the 80s", but I never listen. Those crazy persian amoebas really got me hooked. I own everything; Ties, shirts, hankerchiefs, you name it. Gold in red, silver in blue, silver and gold in purple, and so much more. It's never enough and I can't stop it.

So, my question is, does anyone just really love that pattern? And what's the most outrageous use of it in fashion? Leather shoes? Glasses with an etched-in pattern? You tell me.

Didn't it come back in like the early to mid 00's?

Can't say I'm in love with a particular pattern. I like a sky blue gingham shirt as much as the next person, but I'm not passionate about it.

Yeah, maybe it did come back there, I wouldn't know.
I just discovered that it is a very complex and lively pattern that gives you this very serious but also kinda bourgeois air, which I just love.

Gingham is pretty nice if youre looking at light, casual fabric. I own some shirts made in it.
