Briefs:

Also known as Y-Fronts, even when the Y shaped fly is not present. Styles are similar to those used in jeans (high rise, mid rise & low rise) and are often used when referring to briefs.

Button-down Collar:

The shirt's points are tacked down with small plain buttons on the front of the shirt. Although regarded in some menswear circles as a sporting style, it is seldom worn with a suit.

Cable Knit:

Refers to a pattern widely used in men's jumpers and knitted accessories, as raised 'cables' appear to twist around one another. Fishermen are found at the root of this utilitarian style; the permuting stitches are known to create a far more lasting and insulating garment. The method is used to create textured, layered looks popular in the autumn/winter seasons.

Cardigan:

A machine or hand stitched sweater front fastening (such as ties, buttons or zips), with has an open front. However, this is quite different from the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, a breed of dog or pullover sweater .

Chalk Stripe:

These are vertical lines on a suit fabric, created to look like the colour of a tailor's chalk. The lines are simple and hazy in comparison to the crisp, distinct lines of pinstripe.
