Scotland the Brave and Sartorially Brilliant.

They’re not exactly known for their dress.

More for their spirits

their defiance of the Brits

their feats of strength

and their music.

However, they basically invented every single awesome pattern.



Fair Isle


Harris Tweed



Glen Plaid


and finally, my favorite pattern, Argyle.

Conclusion: Nobody can compete with the Scots when it comes to bagpipe playing, caber tossing, fighting off the British or creating patterns.

  1. ah but the glenn plaid was invented by a bunch of English twits, it aina Scottish.

  2. Is that right? the ol’ wikipedia led me to believe it was Scottish in origin. Let’s hope so, anyway.

  3. It’s supposedly an 19th century invention of English landowners in Scotland. Or according to wiki an invention of a New Zealander living in Scotland?
    anyhow it’s pretty much a product of 19th century romantic movement of Walter Scott that made everything Scottish cool.
