Famously, the tartan plaid is increasing in popularity with our custom orders. This Scottish heritage cloth originally was used draped over the shoulders as a kilt accessory. The two toned vertical and horizontal lines forms squares which is called a sett. Historically the Dress Act of 1746 attempted to bring Scotland’s warrior clans under government control by banning the tartan and other aspects of the Gaelic culture. In 1782 the law was repealed and as it was no longer the ordinary highland dress and was instead adopted as the symbolic national dress of Scotland.
Today, many clients have chosen to wear the tartan plaid for more festive occasions such as major holiday parties. Shown above is Kiton’s double breasted SS15 dinner jacket.
