What do you guys think of plaid upholstery?

I'm due to have my seats re-upholstered and was thinking of fun and unique ideas. My truck's interior is all grey and has a ton of wood inserts and trim pieces (It was built to be a long-hauler deluxe package from some local business that went out of business years ago)

I figured a nice blue, tan, white, & grey plaid would look great in my interior.
Here is my inspiration (I know my truck is red, but it will soon be painted either blue, grey, or white):


Here are pictures of my current interior:
(Ignore the missing door panel!)



I was thinking of using a plaid similar to this styling:

Hey now... not everything in the 70's was bad

I'm really not sure what my seats are from, they came with the "long hauler package". They are super comfortable though, I could fall asleep in my truck so easily.

Plaid is awesome on square body vehicles... would look out of place on newer rigs.

What year(s) are you talking about when you say square body vehicles? I thought out trucks were very square looking

Our trucks were certainly the last of the square-ish angular designs. But still not angular enough. You'd have to go back to the first version of our body style, the '80-'86, to make plaid work visually. The front end of the '92-'97 is just curve-y enough to make it not work.

Maybe I'll mock something up before I pull the trigger and see how it looks!
I do miss my '86 F250, I love square nose trucks!

I get what you mean now
I don't think plaid would look good in a super duty either!
