Tartan fabric is a timelessly popular type of wool featuring a chequered pattern. Generally deemed as an organic component of a kilt, the traditional Scottish men’s costume, it is favoured by dandies all around the world. While kilts are the priority of Highlanders, the rest of the world picks tartan cloth for suits, jackets, trousers, shirts, and vests.
Traditionally, tartan is attributed to men’s fashion. In fact, this fabric cannot be gender-limited, as women are passionate for this chequered pattern no less these days — skirts, so obviously borrowed from the celtic tradition, dresses and kaftans are all the rage.
In contrast to the general Scottish attitude towards accurate tartans selecting for your clothing, the morals have become much more democratic on that matter these days — in fact, you are free to wear any sort of the Scottish wool pattern you like. Just find the colour combination that suits you best.
