All this time, I have been calling all types of checkered prints, well, "checkered". Apparently, there are numbers of different types of checkered prints/patterns available in the market. You might have encountered some of them already such as button-up shirts, handkerchiefs, ties, and etc. Today, we will classify them.

  5. Pin Check - is like a polka dot print but with cubes instead of dots.
