Fun Fashion Fact

Did you know that argyle was invented in the 17th century. The diamond pattern came into being by looking at something another way, namely tartan:

“‘Clans used to weave tartan on smaller frames to make tartan hose,’ says Professor Alistair O’Neill, a fashion historian and writer at Central St Martin’s college in London. ‘They found it wasn’t particularly form-fitting so they turned it 90 degrees. They worked out that if you cut the fabric once it is woven on the bias, it gives it a certain elasticity. So by turning tartan on its side you get argyle.'”
