Wherever we look around shops these days we're seeing double... triple...quadruple...lines. It can't be disputed. Stripes -- despite the oft-repeated adage of horizontal stripes adding girth -- are solidly in the fashion mainstream

French Connection's current line appears to consist only of stripes, with Jones New York and Michael Kors not far behind. That must mean most people aren't like me (immediately scanning past horizontal stripes).
